Philosophy Friday: More Oprah wisdom...

I wrote about some things I was taking to heart when Oprah had the last episode of her show. Well, the other day I was checking the listings and saw that she was going to be on the Nate Berkus Show and give a tour of her home in California.

Nate Berkus. Such a cutie. But I digress...

They were sitting in her "tea house" and talking about decorating, knobs, hinges, how she is really "hands on" with every decorating decision made. And then she said this:

"My eyes light up when fabric enters the room."

Enough said.

If we sell all the stuff we've been storing in the attic for years, my eyes will light up. Not because we've gotten rid of anything, but because I'll have some mad money for fabric!

We are going to the farmers market on Saturday for the first time this season, even though it opened in April. I'm so excited!

Your first commenter cracked me up! I love the picture of the Sweetwater fabrics, mainly because I just did a quilt with them!

Even my pedicurist was talking about the tour of Oprah's home. Got to go and find it on the net. . .

My plans for the weekend are small, but I plan on enjoying them. A movie for me and my husband while my aunt babysits, mowing the grass, and planning a quilt! :)

Getting back to quilting this weekend will make my eyes light up. Although, Steve told me last night that my eyes have their sparkle back... that was great to hear!

As much as I like fabric, I gotta admit that it's food for me. Specifically the dessert variety.

Time to sew makes my eyes light up. As does pizza. I could very easily do nothing but eat pizza and sew all day, every day.

I'm a little blinded by what I have on the wall, but I love that she said that!

Well written post!

The local pool opening up!
Early bird swim passes for 3!
No more swim diapers!
Tuckered lil' kiddos after just 2 hours in the pool!
My lil' girl will outswim her big brother!
Summer fun at the pool has begun!

Making roll-up picnic placemats, with utencil pocket, as a teacher end-of year gift. Simon's idea was to give a picnic tablecloth. He agreed to the placemats, as we do not know the size of her table. He picked the main color, listened to suggestions when choosing the patterned fabric, and helped prep the fabric. He L.O.V.E.D. pressing the pedal to sew up the sides before washing/drying. Not so much pedal pushing beyond that!
