Quiet Weekend

Sorry, nothing big to report or show. It has actually been a lovely weekend - it is raining right now, but the temperatures have been in the high 60s to low 70s and I love it! Of course it won't last, but I am enjoying it while it is around.

Last night Andrew and I watched Blood and Chocolate and I have to say I wasn't terribly impressed. Normally I like these supernatural creature kind of movie but I was really meh about this one. To start with, I was crestfallen that Hugh Dancy had an American accent in the movie (what on earth was he thinking?) and secondly, I had absolutely no empathy (or any feeling, for that matter) for the female lead in the movie. Oh well - chalk it up as a loss. I did finish the sleeves on Willow's cardigan during the movie.

Speaking of the cardigan, I am having a frustrating time of finding buttons for the sweater. I figure in the end I will probably need 8 - 10 buttons, and I would like them to be a rosy pink to provide some contrast with the dark green of the sweater. Did I find any at JoAnns? Of course not. Or, rather, I did find some. Several somes - but none of them had enough of any one colour for the sweater. There is a more upscale fabric store in the neighbourhood I will try to go to tomorrow so that I can finish the sweater.

I also spent the day flopping. Didn't get much of anything done, slept, snuggled some kittens, went out for dinner so I wouldn't have to cook. It must be time for the summer slump.

Good luck with the buttons! I've found a lot on e-bay, but it tends to make me button crazy!

Good luck finding buttons. I swear sometimes that's that hardest thing to find to complete a project!!
