BBD - Sampler Finished

- I finished up the BBD Sampler and here is a snap -


It looks kinda crooked - but that is my poor snap - this is a Christmas present to Rico's Mom form us - and we need to get it framed up - the other stitching I did was exclusively on a piece for a present also but no snaps of that - don't want to give away the surprise. It was a great weekend here in the city... nice warmish weather in the 70's with a ton of fog yesterday driving the temps into the 60's - just perfect.

I did get in quite a few movies - "If It's Tuesday, This Must be Belgium" - 1969 - funny in places, then "Marriage on the Rocks" - 1965 - an OK flick that seemed to not live up to its potential. Then two more "Christmas Carols" - "Scrooge" - 1970 the all singing all dancing version - in fact a real favorite of mine that I have seen lots - I have even seen this on the stage in London. Then is was probably the best interpretation - "Scrooge" - 1951 with Alistair Sim - although it veers from the actual story in places it fleshes out some of the back story very well -

There you go a quick "hit and run " post!! have a great Monday!!
Thanks for stopping by!

take care,
edgar

Crooked or not, it's wonderful! And you did it so quickly too!
I just wanted to let you know that to me, a new-comer to the stitching world, you're work is motivational and admirable to me. I therefore wanted to nominate you with the Brilliante Award. For details, see here: http://betweenstitches.blogspot.com/2008/07/my-first-awardwow.html

It's gorgeous, Edgar! Congrulations on the finish. What color of frame are you thinking? Whitewashed to go with the house, maybe a brown or something else? Just curious. :)
