In The "Twilight" Zone

Friday's mail had my copy of "Twilight" on DVD in it, so I spent most of the weekend watching the movie. First just the movie, then the extended scenes. Can anyone explain why they just don't put those scenes into the DVD movies. I mean, who cares if the movie is longer. When you're playing it on DVD at home, you can always push pause if you need to!
I listened to the full commentary (which is a first for me, I've never watched a whole movie with commentary on). Most of it was silly, but fun, & I learned that 2 of the songs in the movie were actually Robert Pattinson, written & performed. The first was the restaurant scene in Port Angeles with Bella & Edward, & the second near the end, when Bella is hurt & near death's door after being attacked by James.
While listening to all this, I spent several hours making bunches of fabric beads in preparation for my next class, which is tomorrow. Some, I made for the clock I had started a week or so ago, & embellished with a bunch of wires, then I finished the clock.
It works just fine.

Your clock is beautiful, I love the bottom "trim". The fabric flowers and wire squiggles are so clever, Don't you ever run out of ideas! I need to get up there and drink some of that water or inhale the volcanic ash?

Richard and I got Twilight on Saturday and watched it again. We love the movie and can't wait for New Moon to come out so we can watch it too.

Love the clock very well done!

Your work continually blows me away. What a clock, Deb!
Geez....

As for Twilight....I love the backstory, how the author wrote at night "just because"...while she was a SAHM. Creativity offsets "the tedium of little children", as Barbara Bush put it so brilliantly.

I loved this novel....the setting in the NW was great, and I enjoyed the characters a lot. Guess I will have to see the movie...and watch the commentary, too!

You really have inspired me with those lovely beads and I haven't made any beads in a long time. It's my turn to give a demo at our serentex meeting and I might refresh some of my bead making ides. Thanks!

I hate it, if I must see on the clock and the time passes. But on this clock I look gladly. It is beautiful!
