I am so exited, my brother is arriving today for his toronto premiere! he has finished his documentary Alfred and Jakobine and I can't wait to see it on Sunday! It is premiering at Toronto's Hot Docs Festival.
I have seen a rough cut and it was so so good. Mainly, from my point of view, because of the diary excerpts of Jakobine's. I just love her, and of course I am partial to diaries and women's experience in general. My brother, I am amazed at his ability to persevere, this was a long long time coming! Hooray for my brother!
I just love this mural I spotted a few weeks ago on Queen street. It really is true. I hardly recognise this neighborhood, compared to even 10 years ago. I do like how it has gentrified while still allowing the original grime to shine through somewhat. As soon as a starbucks, and then a second one only 2 blocks away, move in, you know things are on the up and up.
Finished up another 11 x 1 7 quick and dirty quilt just now. That's my style on preschool mornings! No time to worry about stray threads and muck like that when I need to feel I have accomplished something, just for me! No idea what to use these for, placemats perhaps, but then I will just spill jam and tea all over them...still I do like the small scale and ease of finishing! I have a quilt ready to be finished, that I started over 7 years ago. In the end, I sewed all these strips together rather than adding plain strips in between them, and I really love it- will take a nice picture now that the weather is cooperating finally, even of just the quilt top.
Better rush off and get Finch! TTFN!
