from my sister:
Isn't she gifted?
I did not do much textile this week: I have a strong case of movie fever. This happens once or twice a year.
On Monday, I went to see The Princess and the Frog. Quite charming. I liked it.
And on Friday, I went to see Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightining Thief. On the whole a good movie, with nice visual effects, but I fear I'm a bit too old for this one. Clearly, it is for teenagers :-)
Susan, regarding my understanding of English, Sherlock Holmes was easy to understand. Both Sherlock and Watson are British and educated, and as such, rather easy to understand. I remember I did not understand much of Juno, because she speaks like a teenager. From time to time, we've got American series in English on TV. For example, I can understand H and Eric in CSI Miami, while Calleigh gives me a hard time. So, it really depends on what I'm listening to.
My coworker, and now friend, Irene is Scottish. She trained me to enjoy English, in books, movies, etc...As a result, I always try to see a movie in the English version, whenever possible. Even if I don't understand all, the atmosphere is quite different.
Right now I'm working on a skirt, not an easy one because it is from a Burda pattern, with Burda instructions... I think the same with Vogue instructions would be much easier. I'm lucky I'm on leave tomorrow, so I hope I can post more about it.
In the meantime, take care!
