(or I should say want a couple of things)
I wasn't into stitching last night and so didn't really get anything done but here is snap of some more letters from the first Alphabet -
I don't know what was going on but I just did not feel it last night - so that meant that not too much got done. There is another alphabet on top of this one in a golden/yellow so we'll see what we can accomplish over the next couple of days.
It was probably the movie last night - TCM's 31 Days of Oscars continues – with “On the Beach" - 1959. It is not an up movie by any stretch of the imagination. It stars Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Fred Astaire and Anthony (pre-psycho) Perkins. All of the acting and production of the film is wonderful. Ava Gardner was still a spectacular beauty!!! It was the first film that Fred Astaire had a dramatic roll and did no singing or dancing, he also was wonderfully beliveable. Gregory Peck as the leading man does his job as usual with great skill!!!! If you do not know the story it is about the residents of
Regarding the SBQ - I knew that all would be surprised at the unveiling of my secret interest in Quaker themed stitchy things!! :)
I did have a couple of comments that need answering -
Coni - Thanks for de-lurking and for stopping by!!!! I know it does seem that I do lots of big things. I just like the idea of a project lasting for a while. Don’t get me wrong I do like a quick finish and that is why I really like the SBEBB. I only have one q-snap and that is an 8 inch one. It is very close to the size of my favorite hoop so I am comfortable with it and just move that sucker around. The extra linen I just roll up under or on top of the piece and just kind of prop it there, that was not very clear. I think I need a picture - I'll try and get one for tomorrow.
Kathryn - I know what you mean about CC floss - it seems that lately it has changed dramatically with the variegation and the weight - I don't know what is going on, but I do love the colours they have, some of my favorites. With that said - I have been using many more WDW and have just fallen for Tigers Eye, Whiskey and Scuppernong.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!!!
