The Kite Runner

We spent Father's Day evening watching a movie, The Kite Runner. It's a memorable, thought-provoking film; brutal and honest. It deals with courage, honesty, betrayal and reconciliation from Kabul, Afghanistan to Pakistan to America and back. Not for the whole family, it's violent and raw in spots. This is one story that will stay with you, guaranteed!

After weeks upon weeks of crammed-full days of commitments, appointments and outside responsibilities I'm spending the best part of today with soft flannels and a humming sewing machine, nothing brings greater joy. No photos just yet, there are some things best left to the element of surprise! I'll post some here soon, fear not. I'll bet you can just guess what I'm up to! Oh, a tip for these flannel, pinked-edge, jelly rolls: when you're sewing/cutting/handling them, you might reconsider wearing black knit clothing!

Life is Good!

Oh, but it is SO much more fun when you wear black...

There's nothing like the hum of the sewing machine!!

LeeHaven is SO happy to know the day was spent in front of the machine. You deserved this peaceful time.

I'm going to be very excited to see what you're creating. I know its going to be fantastic.

I'll be patient and wait though.

Was wondering about Kite Runner. Really was, just today. I do believe that I will go and see it this week now. I am really glad that I stopped by... Kayce

I have been thinking about renting that movie, and definitely will now.
Hooray for you, spending time with your sewing machine! I thought I was the only one who wore dark knits when I sew. My hubby laughs at me, because I come downstairs covered in thread! I'll never learn....

I found the book, Kite Runner, so interesting and also thought provoking. If you get a chance, try A Thousand Splendid Suns - another good (hard to use that word for these books) read.
