A few jobs to do around the house on Saturday, a little sewing and then went to see "August: Osage County" with Mum and Lynell. We really enjoyed the movie but it is very confronting - definitely not the usual light-hearted rom-com I watch. The MA15+ rating is a bit of an indicator of the language. The acting is fantastic and there definitely will be a few Oscar nominations for this film.
Last Tuesday my friend Barbara returned from her 7 weeks trip around Europe - including a Rhine River Cruise stopping at all the Christmas markets. Was so good to see her yesterday and catch up on some of her holiday news over lunch. Later in the afternoon we went to the pictures to see "Saving Mr Banks" - wonderful, wonderful movie. I had no idea of the storyline so it was quite a surprise to me. I knew very little about PL Travers and will definitely learn more about her after seeing this film. Looking forward to seeing this film again.
Finished off blocks 16-20 of the APQ Quiltalong over the weekend and re-made block 15 - I wasn't at all happy with the outer circle fabric.

There are so many beautiful versions of this quilt on Instagram.
