177: Catch-up & mayo please…..
Yes, more catch up photos…actually some of these are new (or in one case an old scan of a “very old” picture)…You know I say catch up as if I actually will…..I highly doubt that will happen…but I like to think it might. Humor me, okay?
Here are some Courthouse Steps blocks I made with Kaffe Fassett’s newest line for an ad campaign for Stash Quilting Company. I have another set of blocks using Valori Wells’ new Del Hi collection that I need to get worked up for them too!
Linda made this guy for an article she is working on regarding a sculpting technique she came up with using plastic Halloween skulls…And since this one was Blue one, I thought I could borrow him from her post over here…Thanks, Darling!
Okay and here is the shocker for those who know me…this next picture is me about 22-23 years ago….about 1/2 my current age…If THIS doesn’t spark some comments from you people who know me, then I don’t know what will. You know I really had a pretty good time back then, even though I remember being kinda lonely and lost at times. This is at the Sea Lion Caves on a trip to Oregon with my best friend and roommate at the time, Nate. I think we were with his fiancee at the time (he ended up marrying someone else actually) I was the third man out (as usual), but I did have a pretty good trip anyway. And no those curls were not natural…..the color was, but not the curl…and I was so THIN back then…sigh….
I always love stamps and try to get the most wonderful ones documented and scanned..I loved the designs on this set. I noticed them posted at the office before the postal rates went up, but they weren’t available yet. So they are now…go get yourself some…they are so fun.
Right now I am listening to “Le Freak” and “Grease” on Pandora…I am presently on my “Boney M” station…if you even know who Boney M is, you MUST comment…very few do…anyway Middle Age has hit I guess…this music is over 20 years old (almost 30 some of it) and it feels so like it was just yesterday…
Well that is enough for now. Not really, I have so much more to show and say, but I am out of time this am as I write. Gotta go to the job that I do for $$ and Health Benefits…Not as interesting or fun as the design work, but gotta keep life going don’t we.
Hope you enjoyed today’s catch-up…there will be more…there always is!!
Keep Happy, Keep Sewing,
It always amazes me how early you get up. I am NOT a morning person, so I sleep in as late as I possibly can every morning and STILL when I get up, it feels like I could sleep for another 2 hours. Today I got up just a couple of minutes ago… 7:15 am my time which would be 5:15 your time. I go into Twitter and what do I see right at the top? Scott Hansen saying something or other about an ancient self-portrait. Dude, it’s way too early for me to say anything clever or funny. I still have one eye closed (literally). I can’t believe you are up, tweeting, blogging and being so cheery! Oh, how I wish I was a morning person! Anyway, I thought you were maybe the same age as Jon & I but you are a few years older… haha. And what is that, a perm? Gosh, if I ever gt brave enough to post pics of me from 20+ years ago, you all would have a heart attack. I was a total GOTH… black everything! Anyway, I guess I have to go get the kids ready for camp now… and try to get my left eye to open. Later!
Wow Scott! That perm is so very 80’s! Fun picture (man I miss the Oregon Coast)!
LOL, I had a perm once. I got all kinds of comments on it. I was also really thin once. Yikes, that was a long time ago.
I know and love Boney M. I used to be a disco DJ in the 70’s and 80’s and they were one of the bands that I liked, but the locals didn’t. They wanted to hear the pop radio stuff. Sigh.
‘Ra-Ra-Rasputin, Russia’s greatest love machine’. . . Oh no, Scott, our cultural influences keep crashing into each other! My husband has a Boney M record or two and I loved listening to them during my university years – 13 years ago! They still make me smile. My kids aren’t so impressed when I sneak them on the record player. (my husband’s an audiofile – we still listen to tape cassettes as well!) Thanks for the memories. Love your Kaffe blocks.
OMG! OK, don’t laugh but the first thing I though of when I saw youe pic was “where’s Olivia Newton John?” LOL!! And then I read that you were listening to Grease, well it’s no wonder…you had the look, hahaha!
Olivia, yes! Grease is the word…hahahaha!
Love those quilt blocks! Thanks for checking in this morning.
Sorry Scott but the first thing I thought when I saw your picture was Wolfman! I loved the one eye closed look. I come from a curly headed family, my brothers would have paid to not have had hair like that in the 70’s.
Love the Fassett blocks, I just went to the Sisters quilt extravaganza and saw many quilts using his lines…I love all the bright colors. Thanks for sharing.
Boney M!! We have the Boney M Christmas album which my husband has digitized because it just ain’t Christmas at our house without a little Boney M. Thanks for the memory 🙂 By the way I think I had the same ‘do back around the same time only mine was blonde and my colour was natural too. I looked something akin to a pedigreed poodle.
Poodle-Do’s Rock! Hey a Boney M Christmas Album? That is so cool Mary’s Boy Child by them is one of my favorite Christmas songs!!
