I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend! We did, just mooching around at home as usual, but still nice. Now, what have we been up to? Peter has had the last couple of days off as well, and today we all went to see Monster vs Aliens - in 3D! If you haven't seen it - then go see it! It was a good fun family movie but it has to be said, the 3D effects were pretty spectacular! We explained to Joe what it would be like before we went but, unfortunately, he decided -after about 5 seconds! - that he didn't like the things jumping out at him and refused to wear the glasses! He still enjoyed it though, although it looked pretty blurry without the specs.
So what else have I been up to? Let's see - my Saffron Craig fabric arrived, just a couple of fat quarters but they are very lovely!
No idea what I'm going to do with them yet, of course! Although I did notice that they seemed to go quite well with the other piece of hand printed fabric I bought a little while back, what do you think?
I've also just finished reading this book:
Now, you know I don't "do" book reviews, but I did enjoy this one and would definitely recommend it. It's a little bit different - I'm really crap at explaining things so I'll just give you a bit of the blurb off the back:
"How can I describe this place? It's an in-between place. It's like a grand hallway that leads you nowhere, it's like a banquet dinner of leftovers, a sports team made up of the people never picked, a mother without her child, it's a body without it's heart. It's almost there but not quite. It's filled to the brim with personal items yet it's empty because the people who own them aren't here to love them."
I think I enjoyed this one better than PS, I Love You, just my personal opinion, of course!
Finally, I signed up for Silkiesue's Freestyle Swap and have been partnered with Lisa at Periwinkle. I'd not discovered her blog before so I've been enjoying looking through her archives and learning a bit about her. She's made some gorgeous knitted bunnies! Now I have to get my thinking cap on and decide what I'm going to send!
Ooh, no that wasn't the final thing, there's more! Emma at Bagladee is celebrating her blog's first birthday and is giving away one of her gorgeous handbags so do pop over and say hello!
That's all for now. Enjoy the rest of the week!
