The Neighbourhood Grows
Today I added one more house to the neighbourhood building program. I sewed the chimney on upside-down, TWICE! I think keeping the colour in the primary and secondary colours of the 'Summersville' range ( I added yellow though) will serve to keep the blocks cohesive.
So this is my little neighbourhood so far...
As I was sewing today, I managed to watch Star Wars Episode 2 again and after 10 years I still hated it. I think that Anakin Skywalker is such a whinging pathetic character. I found the storyline very very weak. I wonder how George Lucas could write this and also 'The Empire Strikes Back' with the same brain!
When Episode 3 came out in 2005, I didn't even bother going to see it. It was much better as a story. I could not help but see the parallels between Hitler and the Nazi party and the accession of Palpatine and the Empire. Especially the scene where the clones turn on the Jedi and eliminate them.
Have I mentioned that my 3 kids are really into Star Wars now? These 2 episodes are rated M and so I will not be showing them these. But it was nice to find out that the movies were made in Australia.
Paper Piecing Blog Hop
Kristy, from Quiet Play, is planning a paper piecing extravaganza soon. So please keep checking her blog for more details and if you are interested in maybe hosting with a pattern on your blog let her know soon. She is taking expressions of interest in the next few days.
And a Thank You
About a week ago, I received a prize from Cherie of 'I Be's Cheraldine' and I just wanted to show you her cleverness. This is a two-tone zip pouch but inside was a matching pin cushion and then two mini- log cabin fridge magnets.
Thank you Cherie - not only for these handmade goodies but because you are always encouraging.
