On the weekend, I went to see Letters To Juliet - a good chick flick very fluffy, light-hearted and beautiful scenery of Italy- and Mao's Last Dance - a very good movie, a true story about a ballet dance who went to America from Mao's China. My daughter also got me a copy of The Secret of Kells. It is a cute cartoon movie about the making of the Book of Kells. Visually very artistic.
I found two new stores today, one a fabric store where they rent machines and will be having classes and meeting of the Modern Quilt Guild, at the other store they have painting classes. Mixed media and glazing and encaustic so I may take some classes, I really like the instructors style.
That's about it for today. Be back soon! I do visit you all every day even though I am not posting.

If you can enlarge this you can see the grin of pleasure on his little face. He is a Maltese terrier. I didn't think to ask what his name was.
I got started on a couple of ATC's last night for a 'flower' exchange I'm doing with a blog friend.
I will be starting the newsletter for the building I live in for June at the end of the week. I always enjoy putting that together. I take photos for it as well so it is a project that incorporates a few skills.
I went to visit a neighbour in the hospital today. He had cataract surgery a month ago and has gone completely blind. He had cataract surgery on the other eye five years ago and lost his sight in that eye after the surgery. I feel so bad for him, having to adjust to blindness at the age of eighty. He is a very independent active man but also determined so he will, hopefully, do okay adjusting.
Getting close to finishing my latest purse so will post it when I am done.

It seems like everyone is making tags so I thought I would make some. The colours are a bit distorted because I photograped them in the late afternoon and the light changes to this peachy colour, maybe I will retake the photos tomorrow.
