I'm off to a cottage for a 3-day weekend - i don't work Mondays. I am taking way too many things to do but i'll be happy if i can at least start them all!
This weekend, i will be:
* knitting my first adult-size slippers - i think i can do this after making so many baby booties!
* starting the book purses
* making injera for the first time
* reading a new book
* make bottle-cap quilt pieces
* make pins and jewellry with said pieces
* watching good new releases
Speaking of movies, we saw Nine Lives last night and it was beyond superb. It's a movie about 9 different women's lives and how they are all (subtley) interconnected. J said he thinks it was the best feminist movie ever made and i can't argue with that!
So, in light of great reading and entertainment, here are some blogs and websites i have recently discovered. My mom also read about a few (thanks mom!) and i am happy to have them featured on my 'Crafty Grrls' blog list.
