Movie Monday - 3/27/2017

The dash has been hopping lately. I've even watched a few movies! Here's two of them:

Kate Winslet stars in the dramedy, The Dressmaker. She plays Tilly, a woman who was sent away from her home as a child. She returns with an agenda. Judy Davis, Liam Hemsworth and Hugo Weaving also star. It was goooooood! It's a must see.

Bradley Cooper plays a chef in Burnt. He tries to overcome an incident or two in his past that caused him to lose his job and the respect of his peers. Now, he's on a mission to get back on track and to earn a third Michelin Star. Sienna Miller also stars.  It was cute.

That's all for now.

FO Friday - 3/10/2017

I'm alive. I've been knitting and doing a little sewing.


Pattern:  A Breath of Fresh Air by Debbie O'Neill
Yarn: The Loopy Ewe Seasonings Series in Tickety Boo
Comments: I made this scarf for the February Monthly Mixer. The prompt was to pick a project that incorporates hearts or the color pink, red or burgundy. I bought this yarn as a kit a few years ago. The pattern came with it. I enjoyed making it.

I finally finished the January Fabric Monthly Mixer:


The challenge was to use three colors of batiks. 


I had a bit of leftover border that I made for a previous Camp Loopy project. It may have four colors of batiks, but I'm not counting. I have tons of that Robert Kaufman Essex Yarn Dyed linen/cotton blend; so, I slapped that batik piece on it and made a kitchen towel. 

That's the first bit of sewing I've done in a while. My sew-jo has been on vacation lately. I hope it comes back soon.
