Have you ever watched a movie and wished you could see the clothes the actors are wearing up close and personal? Yep, this girl most definitely has! And let me tell you, when I got the chance, it did not disappoint!
Mr. Goofin' Off and I recently got to attend the "Heroes and Villains: The Art of Disney Costume" exhibit at the MoPOP (Museum of Pop Culture) in Seattle. It was absolutely fascinating. There were so many of the original costumes warn in Disney live-action films, we stayed until we literally had to leave because our time was up.
The four costumes above were all worn by Cinderella in live-action movies and TV by Disney. Can you guess where they came from?
- Top Left: Warn by Lily James in the 2017 movie "Cinderella" The details on this were stunning with hundreds of beautiful little butterflies sewn onto the dress.
- Top Right: Dania Ramirez in the seventh season of the TV Show "Once Upon a Time"
- Bottom Left: Warn by pop singer Brandy in the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical film "Cinderella" made for ABC.
- Bottom Right: Warn by Anna Kendrick in the 2014 movie "Into the Woods."
Flamingo Crossings Quilt
The first thing I did was sew some of these strip sets together. I love the pretty pinks...and know they are bright. But it will all be toned down when I add some the black fabric further down the road.
Next, I sub-cut these strip sets down to get started on the blocks. Not a whole lot of progress, but it's better than nothing.
On my cross stitch project of "Mickey and Pirate Friends," I started a new row of pattern pages. I got through approximately 800 stitches since the last update. I know some people can do that in a day, but this baby has tons of confetti. And, quite honestly, finding time to work on projects can be difficult to fit in.
And this is how the entire piece looks right now. Hoping to get more stitching done this week. But Mr. Goofin' Off has a bit of time off, so that often eats into my stitching time. I'm not complaining, though. I love to spend time with Mr. Goofin' Off. He is my personal Goofy!
