Having read a few of my favourite blogs I realise the weather here is not too bad after all. USA is freezing their socks off and other parts of Australia are having bushfires and flooding. Yikes......To everyone out there battling with the elements I send my heartfelt best wishes at it will improve very soon.
On the homefront, there has been a girl's stitching day and an outing to the movies to see "Quartet" since we last chatted. The stitching day was great as always and we all made a little progress on our canvas projects. Anne is working on Michael Boren's 'Frankie', Lis is working on Jim Wurth's 'Czarina' and I pulled out Kurdy Biggs's 'Looking Glass'. It has been a while since this project got an outing and I had forgotten how much fun it is.
Quartet the movie was a little sad but has some great one-liners to keep you smiling. Wouldnt it be wonderful to have a house like this one in the movie for age challenged stitchers in their twilight years? There were some gorgeous sunny windows that would make a happy stitching nook with views that went on forever. Sigh, dream on............a lottery win would make the dream come true, methinks. But... and there is always a but....Ian and I have been buying lotto tickets for over 30 years and we are not rich yet.
