Team Switzerland!

Some of you will automatically know what that title means, others of you will not.

If you have not entered the world of Twilight, then you are in the later group. It is a crazy fantasy world, but one that is well loved by many.

To clarify my title and the thoughts behind it...I do firmly believe that Bella & Edward do ultimately belong together, but while I was reading the books I also could see the immense draw to Jacob and the life she could have with him. A fairly sane, normal life. After seeing the "New Moon" movie last night I can see the draw of Jacob even more. I love Taylor Lautner's performance of him! Oh, 2 have a second choice like Jacob. :-) Anyhow...great movie! Loved the styling of it, the direction, everything! Loved it more than "Twilight"!

As you have now gathered by the above comments...yes, I was at the midnight premiere! Our theater offered a deal where you could come @ 9:00 and watch "Twilight" for matinee price and then stay and watch "New Moon" @ midnight., my son & some of our friends went to see both movies. We got to stay inside and enjoy the movie in the warmth while others waited over 3 hours outside in the cold. We had to exit the movie theater for them to clean out the theater, but didn't have to leave the building and then we got first choice on seating before they opened up and allowed the outside people in. We had been seated well over 10 minutes before they let them in. Well worth my matinee ticket price!!!

As for stitching...

Here is Clare's piece for our Quaker Friendship Round Robin! Don't you just love her color choice?! I believe the color of her thread is Gloriana's Autumn Arbor. I enjoyed the appropriate timing of having her piece during the fall. Really made me feel in the spirit of the fall season.

I am currently stitching on a couple of Christmas ornaments. Hope to post some pictures soon.

I just saw the first Twilight movie last week. Held off because I didn't think I'd like it, but I did. I don't know if I'll go to the theatre to see New Moon, but I surely will watch it when it comes out on DVD.
