HtbaS – Episode 143

I talk about my not-so-80’s Movie Makeover Moment and make an embarrassing confession. You’re welcome! Then I get on to the quilt talk, and I have a pile up of tops and backs and too many projects going on at the same time.

  1. I got a shout out too! Thanks for doing your podcast Pam. I enjoy listening to it and laughing with you. 🙂

  2. Hi Pam-Loved your 80s make over reference! Maybe it’s my age (early 40s), but when I had my fitness revolution and lost 35 pounds a few years ago, I had a rather unexpected reaction from more than one person. After the initial “you’ve lost weight/you look so great” comments, these people would suddenly look hesitant and ask if I was feeling okay. Nope, I don’t have cancer, I’m just making better choices! Thanks for the podcast!

  3. Congratulations on your makeover moment!

    I get what you’re saying about your son and Ender’s Game. I guess it would depend on if the book/movie could stand alone (I haven’t read it) or if it leaves you with a cliffhanger that makes you desperate for the next book. I kept Gracie from reading Twilight for that reason; the first book would be okay, but they get progressively “older” and I knew she’d want to keep reading. Even as an adult I downloaded each subsequent book on my Kindle (usually in the middle of the night) because I couldn’t wait til the bookstore opened to find out what happened next.

  4. I think many parents faced the same dilemma with the Harry Potter series. Do you let them start it knowing that it gets so much darker? I let my kids make the decisions themselves, as my parents did with me, and it has all worked out. I do remember my daughter getting very upset with Phillip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” trilogy. She did not like his point of view and felt that she had been manipulated by the author. I was glad that she could see this on her own.

    FYI, the Makeover Moments appear to have segued into Moments for the Middle Aged. Our heroine has usually been under appreciated by her family and “let herself go.” Se changes her hair color, loses those 10 pesky pounds (10? Really?) and gets a new wardrobe and Voila! The perfect new man appears. See any of the Dorothea Benton Frank books.

  5. Oh Pam, I have a confession. I really, really thought I was making the 20 block quilt. Turns out, it’s only 16. Even at that, ain’t no design wall big enough. I can’t and don’t want to contemplate 4 more blocks. Hats off to you for persevering through 20.
