Have Gun- Will TravelFriday, March 5, 2010
This week has been consumed with my quilting projects. Usually while working on quilts, I watch quite a bit of TV. Romantic movies I've seen a hundred times...anything Jane Austin, While You Were Sleeping, Moonstruck, and Groundhog Day. The list could go on and on, but you know the ones I'm talking about, don't you? I can work and not have to look at the screen all the time because I have the scenes memorized. It makes the time pass more easily. I'm entertained while working.
We joined Netflicks this past year. I love the instant download offered by this company. No waiting for something to arrive in the mail. Now I go through their list of instant downloads and pick what I want to watch and just turn it on!
I found the series of Have Gun-Will Travel on Netflicks. What joy!!! Now I can watch all the programs I used to cry to be able to see. I must have been about 6 or 7 years old when this series first started. The show came on after Gunsmoke and right at my bedtime. My parents would let me see it sometimes....but not often. I remember crying one time and they finally relented. (I told my Mom about this and NOW she says she's sorry they didn't let me watch it.)
So....I'm working and my husband Dave walks into the room.
"What are you watching now?" he asks me.
"Have Gun- Will Travel" I reply.
"You have got to be kidding me."
"No, I used to cry to see this show....and I'm catching up on all of the episodes I missed. My childhood revisited. I don't even mind the black and white." I tell him.
Then it hit me. My whole life has been centered around searching for my Paladin. I'm shocked to say the least. I had no idea why I've been attracted to men with dark hair and a mustache. Now all is revealed.
All he needs is a calling card, horse, hat and his gun.
The above picture is one that many have written to me about. This cotton trim is one I used on the Bird in Hand pincushion. I over dyed it with tan Rit dye. It's original purpose is for knitting. But I loved the frayed look and thought it would make a great trim.
Until later dear friends....back to sewing
