Busy bee weekend

So far this weekend has been a busy one, but good all the same.

Some friends hosted us for brunch which was wonderful! So nice not to cook! What a treat! I feel so spoiled!

My college roommate and her husband stopped in for dinner on their adventure through the bay area. They are totally nuts, dinks, and think that a casual drive from So Cal to Northern California in 1 day is a piece of cake.

The were picking up this chair in green- wow it's pretty. Cannot wait to sit it in.

Still plugging along on the sashiko yukata quilt. It's fun to hand quilt something free form.

Oh, and we saw the coolest movie last night. Witness - from good old 1985, with Kelly McGillis & Harrison Ford. It's about Amish life and modern life and now never the twain shall meet.

For you Lord of the Rings fans out there, it's Viggo Mortensen's first film.

The film itself was very beautiful, well lit, and well acted I think. The quilts in the movie are beautiful as well. There is even a scene that takes place at the quilt frame.

A bit of adult content, so watch it after the little ones nod off. Directed by Peter Weir (Dead Poets, Truman Show, etc).

Thanks for the reminder about Witness. I enjoyed it when I saw it ages ago and it would be nice to watch it again.
