Odds and ends

8 Apr

For #RomancelandiaMovieNight next week, the movie is MAID IN MANHATTAN (2002). Cinderella, with a twist!

It’s been a bad week for reading, let alone reviewing, and I don’t have much progress to show on my sewing for #RomancingTheVote, but I can’t let the week pass without a post, lest I backslide to letting the blog die, so this short note will have to suffice.

Finished three pieces for a denim/solid light pink/solid royal blue pouch, with light stripped blue lining and white zipper.

On a just-barely related note, the next #RomancelandiaMovieNight will be Monday, March 14, and the movie is Something New (2006), with Sanaa Lathan and Simon Baker. I have wanted to watch this one for a while, and now I have the perfect reason. I confess that I find it highly inconvenient that it is a workday evening, but I’m nothing if not stubborn–I am determined to keep this going for a year, dammit all.

Overview of the first five finished pouches.

What I hadn’t resolved myself yet to do, at the time of posting, was to offer something myself for the auction.
