Happy Weekend

Do you have any special plans for the weekend?   Have you even had a chance to think about what you might LIKE to do on the weekend?  I hope you can factor in some time just for you.  This weekend I'm planning on doing another canvas extraordinaire!  I think it will be a really good one too, since I am going to gather lots of great and inspiring ideas the Quilt and Craft Show tomorrow.

I recently finished reading My Heart Wanders, by Pia Jane Bijkerk.  Have you read it?  10/10 for me.

I borrowed a few movies from the library the other day too.  Not sure what to expect.  Have you heard of...  Another Year.  The reviews on the cover say "Brilliant, heart-breaking, life-affirming and ceaselessly engrossing". and.. "intelligently uplifting".  Sounds a bit like a review of me!
What about  Big Fish with Ewan McGreor and Jessica Lange.  Or, Silk, with Keira Knightly.  If you've seen any of these movies, let me know if they are worth putting my feet up for!

Here's a few happy snaps of things around the house.  The heartshapes I spotted in the carport.  The orangey one is red dirt from my husbands recent trip to Birdsville and beyond.  The other one is bits of squashed up lichen, dirt, leaves and a pigeon-pea seed.

A meaningful quote from someone very smart.... 
In a world where you can be anything, be yourself.

Hope your weekend turns out just how you want it to.

  1. Plans for the weekend are to finish sewing a doll for my niece tomorrow and go to her party on Sunday. As for me time I might head to the shops, not my favourite place, but I need some new clothes so I might get something for the party on Sunday. I hope you enjoy going to the show on the weekend. Love, love that quote it's so true. Have a wonderful weekend Jane. x

  2. Jane those are beautiful images, thanks for sharing and inspiring

  3. I do :) Saturday involved an unexpected gift -- sunshine :) That and clear skies, so I've spent an entire afternoon and evening outside. I think I might have half an hour or so more of sun left.

    Tomorrow involves a lunch and theater plan with a new friend which I am very much looking forward to.

    Hope you enjoy yours too xx
