Submarine

Just watched Submarine – the directorial debut from Richard Ayoade – and was blown away.   Mostly because it’s just so beautiful to look at, but I also enjoyed the humour, the parents, the name Oliver Tate and the ending.  It ended exactly how it should have. … Read More

Diana

As a young girl I was mesmerized by Princess Diana.  She was  beautiful, blonde, had an amazing wardrobe and was jet-setting all over the world (plus – she was a PRINCESS!).  She used her status to bring attention to places and people that were in… Read More

Crochet Chevron Pillow

I was finally able to finish one of my many works-in-progress this week!  I am so totally obsessed with Noro wool lately – it’s just so beautiful and I love the way it looks mixed with a solid colour.  I made this cushion cover using a modified version of a chevron cowl  pattern that I bought on Etsy.  The wool I used was Noro 341 (it took 4.5 skeins) alternated with some other wool that I had in my stash.  It was a great way to use up some small amounts that I’ve had lying around for years!

Today I watched another 80’s flick – Pretty in Pink. I’ve been compared to Molly Ringwald on more than a few occasions and I’ve always considered that to be insult but I learned today how very wrong I was. I can’t even remember the last… Read More
