Progress Not......

Progress on natures journey is slow....  To much happening..   
It will happen..... Somehow.... 
Nancy @ Near Phillip was cleaning out some stuff..... She very kindly sent me this kit..... Love the fabrics.... And it will be a good challenge for me.... Thanks Nancy 
Kate Henderson released another book that I had to have.... You can find Kate @ Two Little Banshees......I love her quilts....  She makes gorgeous clothes to.... . An aussie designer toooo
######
Went and saw a movie last night..... So funny ok I think Kate @ show and tell and I were the only people in the theatre who hadn't had hip replacements....... We watched 'The lady and the van '
I do enjoy Maggie Smith..... It was a bit different but I really enjoyed it..... Some funny moments..... And you have to watch all of it to link up some past secrets of her life......it's been years since I went to a movie let alone on its release date..... I could count on my fingers how many times I've been to the movies.....  But I did have a great evening. .   
Catch you later....

  4. I love Maggie Smith. We saw the shorts for that movie when we saw the movie Suffragette a couple of weeks ago, and thought it would be a good one to go see.

  5. Slow progress is better than no progress!! It will happen! That is a lovely kit you have been given. I too love Maggie Smith, and hope to see this movie. Just watched her in a DVD last night called Keeping Mum, enjoyed it very much.

  11. I love Maggie Smith in anything she does, but I particularly liked her in Downton Abbey. She was so absolutely perfectly cast for her character, and her one liners are a hoot.

  16. The last movie I went to was for my 40th birthday.....some friends took me....that was 20 years ago on Sunday. I love the new kit too but I'm so far behind in the quilting arena that I think I'm first....in fact I just found some "pinks" that I had looked at in my stash about five years ago and thought I'd have to use them in a scrappy they were so outdated......now they are back in "fashion".

  24. It looks like you will have pie,nth to do when you finish Natures Journey. Glad you had a trip to the pictures.

  25. How did I miss this post? Great idea getting the fabric kit and I am sure your NJ quilt will come along nicely. Who can resist a good patchwork book? After all, I reckon it is better value to buy books which have heaps of projects you kniw you will make some day rather than pay for mags that may only have 1 or 2 projects to your liking. I love Maggie Smith too. Good to see you had a good laugh. Great for the soul.
