Inky Dinky SAL

Last weekend I started and finished the first two blocks in the SanMan Inky Dinky SAL. When it's done there will be 12 snowmen, one for each month, and matching boarders. January and February are the only two released so far, but I'm eagerly awaiting March!

Last night was a blast! Me and several friends went to dinner and then to a cocktail party before seeing Sex and the City 2 at midnight. The I really liked the movie. It was alot different than the first, this one was way more fun and light-hearted and in my opinion more along the tone of the show. It didn't live up to my expectations 100% , but then again I've been waiting for it to come out since they started filming it back in September so I probably had too high of expectations! lol The movie theater we saw it in was pretty full. They played it on the biggest theater with a huge screen and seating for 600. It's actually two stories, there is an entrance on the first floor to the bottom rows of seats and an upstairs entrance to the top rows. I would say there were probably at least 400 people there.

Sex and the City 2: The Stories. The Fashion. The Adventure.Sex and the City 2: The Stories. The Fashion. The Adventure.
Sex and the City 2 : The Stores. The Fashion. The Adventure and an example of how each outfit is "deconstructed" piece by piece. It evens lists the designer of each piece. The page next to it shows a picture of the character in the outfit from the movie.

The party before hand was lots of fun. The hors d'oeuvres were delicious, everyone got a Sex and the City 2 martini glass and for those of us who weren't 21, they had kiddie cocktails! lol They had tons of raffles and give always and I actually won a copy of the companion book to the movie that shows all the characters outfits piece by piece. The only down side was not getting home until almost 4 AM and then having to get up for work, luckily I didn't have to be there until 11:30! lol

Sharlotte - John Corbett was indeed the new movie (he isn't in the first), though he is only in two scenes. His character Aiden went out with Carrie for a while during the course of the show and they were actually engaged at one time. They run into each other in Abu Dhabi in the movie. He was actually my favorite of Carrie's boyfriends, but it was one of those things were I always knew she wouldn't end up with him because she was supposed to be with Big. lol Have you ever seen United States of Tara on Showtime? He plays the husband of a women with multiple personalities, it's a pretty good show especially the 1st season. Also, I did see the episode of Sarah Jessica Parker's "Who Do You Think You Are", her husband Matthew Broderick was also on an episode of the show, both were very interesting. He had family that fought in Gettysburg during the Civil War.

Hope everyone is has a fun & safe Memorial Day weekend! Nick


  1. I have not seen United States of Tara. We don't have Showtime, we have Starz as our movie channel in our cable package, which I'm bummed about. I can't really complain though because our cable is free from a promotion our local cable company was doing. Do you complain about not getting a specific channel or be thankful you're cable payment free for the next 16 months!LOL! You probably haven't seen any of this show, but my all time favorite character of John Corbett's was when he played Chris Stephens on Northern Exposure. No one on Earth could play it better!! I own all of the seasons on dvd so I can watch it any time I want. The little stiching project looks great! What happened to Singing the Washline Blues? Did you finish it and I missed it? I am so bad about hoping from one project to the next! LOL! Have a great and safe weekend!!

  2. Oops! I asked too soon. Had I read your sidebar first I would have seen that you are still working on the "Blues". *blushing now*

  3. Yeah, we don't actually get Showtime anymore either, they changed the channels in our cable package when they switched to digital in September. My friend does get it though and she records it on her DVR so I go over there and watch it. lol I actually own the first 2 seasons of Northern Exposure (I always laugh when I'm looking through my DVDs and I see the orange & yellow parka jacket covers lol), and have rented the 3rd and 4th, but haven't seen the last couple seasons.

    Unfortunately Wash Line is sitting under a pile of projects started, or worked on since. I'm hoping to get back to working on it because I wanted to have it done and framed by the end of August so I could give it to my mom as a birthday gift. My eye just keeps wondering to other projects! lol

  4. That sounds like a really fun night!
