If we're lucky, that is. Everyday is a new opportunity. Another chance to learn something new.
When I was a kid I had an elderly aunt whom I loved dearly. She was actually my Grandmother's sister so she was a great-aunt. She was fun and always interested in us kids. However, it quickly became apparent that she was a little out-of-touch with cultural current events. For instance, she didn't really care for the Beatles (gasp!) or, I suppose, Elvis. But Elvis was a tad before my time and that didn't bother me so much. But the Beatles!!!
As I've gotten older, I've promised myself I'd never give in to Auntie Gertie-ness. And I really thought I could avoid that trap by reading widely and listening to the radio, always with an eye to keeping in touch with pop culture.
Well....it's becoming apparent to me that it's not going to work. Oh, I get some of the references. I know about Lady Gaga's meat dress and Holy Crap Cereal for instance. I get my daily dose of Jian Ghomeshi (CBC radio). It's a struggle. A lot of work really but I'm staying afloat....for now.
As part of my on-going effort, I give you the newest up-date on this blog. You can purchase any of my patterns now simply by clicking on the Add to Cart button beside each pattern in the side bar. It will take you to Paypal where I'm assured you can safely pay for your purchase with the credit card of your choice even if you don't have a Paypal account. Now that's progress! Is Grandma Coco not a hip chick???
I was going to blog about my knock-down-drag-out fight with my sewing machine to bind a little quilt entirely by machine but that's going to have to wait until tomorrow because Grandma Coco (while triumphant) is just a little bit tired right now and needs to lie down for a while in a dimly lit room. A demain, mes amis........
