This and That

No stitching got done yesterday as we had a bit of a movie marathon. We also went for a couple of walks in the rain. I love walking in the rain. We saw the films 10,000BC and The Cottage at the cinema, both were pretty average but watchable. We then went to see the old silent movie Nosferatu here as part of a local film festival which was just wonderful.

Today I have been stitching. I've made good progress on my hand stitching for secret project one. Rather annoyingly though I have run out of the thread I was using, the project will now have to go on the back burner until I can make a trip out to get some more. Mark took this wonderful picture (I think) of my materials for this project when I wasn't looking.
Now the hand stitching is on hold I've been at the sewing machine and have just managed to finished my March Bag for the BQL challenge. Can you tell by the bright colours that this one is going to be for me! I really loved this pattern and it was so quick and easy I can definitely see myself making more of these.
Finally I just have to share this rare picture of H & H together. Their new favourite place is in the cupboard with my craft supplies. It's pretty dark in there and if I try a flash photo they just end up with demon eyes. Here is one without hence the blur but I kinda like the effect and I love the way they are sitting staring intently in different directions.

Love the bag...the colors are fabulous. Cats find the greatest places to sneak into. One of mine is always opening the closet doors and other places to go into.

I love the photo of the cats Angela they almost look like a painting not a photo
