I was a total lazy butt last night!!

And did not stitch a thing - nary a needle nor thread touched my callused claws.....
and I don't know why... well I do kinda know why
- after dinner I popped a movie in the DVDer - surprise -surprise!

The flick was "Madame. De..." - 1953 or as it is known here in America - "The Earrings of Madame De..." - such a gorgeous film - starring Charles Boyer and Danielle Darrieux
- set in the Paris of the late 19th Century -
the focus of the film is a Comtesse and a pair of diamond earrings -
"what the earrings signify, primarily, is the transformation and transfiguration of an initially frivolous and flirtatious society woman into a tragic victim of romantic rapture." Andrew Sarris

There you go - my evening - there was also an hour+ phone call from my sister - yakkity yak yak!!I will announce the winner of the "Antique Sampler Kit" on Monday and the PIF's on Tuesday - Thank you all for your support and interest!!

Not too much planned for this weekend - finishing up the MAW for Gaby and the Ornament Exchange for Vonna - I'll be a stitching fool both days!!

One more week to sign up for the SBBC-2209 -

Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!!

Take care,

Hiya Edgar just wanted to say thanks for leaving a comment on my blog i have seen the 1994 version of little women and thought it was good but i think to refresh my memory i will just have to watch it again and again lol.. anyway will have to watch Madame de.. as it sounds just my thing. Congratulations on the sign up for the pifs and i absolutely love the alphabet zoo i think that a deep dark red not blood but kinda wine would look good it looks great..
and by the way it does us good to have a break every now and then..

Ahhh well sometimes our hands need a little stitching break! I would love to join your pif but since I already own two of your stitched pieces it just wouldn't be right or fair on anyone else lol. Although having seen the pifs around at the moment I am mighty tempted to join one somewhere somehow. ;-) x
