 A dreary day can tell from the above photo. Last night was another enjoyable evening with 8 new films from the 2022 Banff Film Festival. More skiing, kayaking and rock climbing but also films about saving Old Forests and inner city kids experiencing nature for the first time. The two best were about a 74 year old mountain  biker called North Shore Betty....gave me hope for myself! Then the one about a pair of Brits who horizontally climbed a very long bridge in the UK. They were following the "crack" in the roadway underneath and it took about 5 days. They slept under there hanging from the top and had a friend hoist up their food and take away their poop. Now that's a true friend!!! The funniest part was when a woman in a  group of onlookers said "Do their Mums know"? 

I finished up the Queen project bag by sewing on some buttons. I used whatever #5 perle cottons I had on hand and added a cute charm as a zipper pull.

Hope you're having a good weekend...thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!




  1. Those sound like some interesting films.
    Your Queen bag is awesome, so cool.

  2. Your Queen Bee bag turned out darling, Stasi. It sounds like a winning evening at the film festival.

  3. Your bag is so cute--and thank you for the tip about stitching on the mesh in your newest post! Makes total sense! Glad you enjoyed the films--they sound very interesting.
