Guilty Pleasure

Okay, I'll admit it. Dancing With The Stars is my guilty pleasure. This was season 10, and I think I've pretty much seen them all.  I even remember the first season with the cute little soap opera actress and the comedian guy duking it out to the very end.  Back then, only the judges voted; then it turned into a popularity contest.

This season went just as I'd hoped.  Erin and Maks were my favorite couple, but they weren't the best.  I was so happy she made it to third place and that Chad Ochocinco's popularity didn't win out.  He could dance, but not as well as Erin. Plus...I think there's more than "friendship" in store for the two of them *wink*

I had fun watching Evan and Anna as well.  Generally, I don't pay much attention to the stars on the show, so this was the first time that I'd really noticed Anna.  She appears to be such a sweet person and it was nice to see how human she was, actually crying sometimes, wanting so badly to do well for Evan.

 But Nicole was just incredible from the very beginning. Last season, Maya was clearly a terrific dancer, but you got the feeling from her that not only did she know it, she was sure she was going to win. I was so glad she didn't; she was just too full of herself for me. Nicole, while obviously a very good dancer, really seemed to have to work at it; plus, you didn't get the impression of ego with her. In fact, the last three finalists really seemed to care about and for each other. Okay, so I could be imagining all this, but its still a fun show and I loved it.

 Oh, and here's a little tip:  If you want to watch this show, you have to either have a DVR or record it--the commercials will make you crazy!!

What does this have to do with quilting or ponies?  Not a darn thing!!  But I'll leave you with this:  below are two pictures of some placemats I made for my friend's birthday.  Not officially quilted, but they were pieced with the stitch-n-flip method and then, on my Janome, I SID'd to hold things together.

  1. Why should we be embarrassed to watch Dancing with the Stars, but I am afraid to admit I watch it and love it. I didn't want Nicole to win, but I'm glad the other two made it to the top 2. And you're right, I never watch it in real time--I can fast forward thru the commercials and still have time to vote at the end.
