Films and Flight

I decided it was about time I got round to finishing off the Birds in Flight quilt (which I feel like I started about a million years ago), so I spent the weekend working on the connecting bits for the strip of birds to go on the back. I didn’t get it finished, but I made pretty good progress. At this rate I might even get it quilted this year…


The Film Festival is on at the moment, and for once I’m not immersed in studying, so I’ve actually got the chance to get to some of the films this year. To make sure I didn’t let it slip by, I bought myself a 5-film pass, so now I’ll have to go to at least 5 films or it was a waste of money :-) I managed to get to two this weekend – on Saturday night I went to an Irish film, A Date for Mad Mary, about a woman, recently released from prison, preparing for her best friend’s wedding, and last night I went to Kiki, el amor se hace, a brilliantly funny Spanish film about kink.  They were both really good (especially considering I picked them as much for the fact that they were on at convenient times/days (each film is only shown a couple of times during the festival, so it can take a bit of planning if there’s particular films you want to see – I know some people who take time off work for the festival each year so they can get to the films shown during the day) as for their reviews), and funny and uplifting, in completely different ways, so a great start to my festival film-going.
