Finished the quilting, finally. It isn't great, but so much better than what I ripped out. Made the binding and applied it before going to yoga last night, so that I could do the hand stitching while watching television when I got home.Got about half the hand stitching done.
Have any of you watched Fox's new show Lie to Me ?
I was so disappointed that it wasn't on last night, evidently the next episode is March 4. The show is based on Paul Ekman's research into facial expressions and what they reveal.
I'd read about Ekman's research last month in Blink ( reviewed here on my book blog) and found it fascinating. What synchronicity that the new television show premiered shortly after I'd read about about Ekman's research!
Our facial expressions and body language are often involuntary, and Ekman has categorized hundreds of minute expressions that can last for less than a second, but that can reveal much more than we realize. Ekman's Diogenes Project research shows that reading these "microexpressions" can be reliable in determining whether or not a person is telling the truth; his research has made him one of the preeminent psychologists of the 20th century.
Anyway, the new series is fascinating, and you can watch previous episodes here. You can also take a test that shows how well you can read "microexpressions" here. Remember that the expressions are very, very quick!
