There was very little sewing this weekend but I had a great time anyway! Friday night I managed to whip up (that's an overstatement, the interior zippered pocket gave me a lot of trouble and took FOREVER) this cute little Thunder purse.
There are a few things I would do differently if I made another one. But overall its not too bad!
We celebrated Easter with my husband's family. There are a couple of
little ones pretty close to Squeak's age so he had a good time. We flew
kites, looked at the cows, hunted Easter eggs, ate rocks...
I managed to get some decent shots of my completed Orbit Quilt thanks to my two helpers :). If we had waited about an hour the wind would have died down completely and made it a lot easier.
A quick shot of the back.
And folded up nice and pretty.
AND he finally said his first words. Was it Mommy or Daddy? No. It was "Thank you". A different choice than most kids, but at least he's polite :)!
One quick rant:
I don't know if I've ever talked about it before, but I am a book fanatic. I haven't had much time to read lately but when I find a good book I can't put it down and I will read it multiple times. My favorite genre is young adult fiction so you can imagine how excited I was to go so The Host this weekend. I already suspected they were going to destroy it and I was right. If a book has a good plot and storyline, why do they feel the need to change it when making the movie??? Instead of trying to build up the character relationships, they added a chase scene (not too much of a spoiler I hope!). And the characters are lacking. They have no depth. Some are omitted altogether. I may have to go read the book for the 8th time now just to try to get rid of the disappointment from the movie. On a more positive note, I did see a trailer for the Mortal Instruments and it looks good! Let's hope its movie lives up to the book!
Hope you have a great week!
