Two more Lovlies arrive for my Tree.... and some movies

You know something - when I type out a title - and don't add -"and some movies" just know that there really were some but not worth mentioning or I am going to yap about something else - but today ..... Let us first talk Christmas!! Yesterday was a double delivery for me for the Ornament Swap - First to arrive was the Ornament that Becky stitched for me -

This totally cute ornament is a Mary Garry design called "Reindeer on the Roof" and is stitched and finished so perfectly on 32ct Amber using DMC & GAST floss. I just love it!!! Since we have two address' we often will get two mail deliveries as the mail carriers will split the mail - I have no clue why or what the criteria is but it happens and so I got a second ornament
- stitched by Staci -
This sweet thing is from the JCS 2002 Issue and is called "Quaker Christmas Tree" - and he is stitched up so wonderfully on 32 ct Lambswool using WDW Collards. I totally embrace my crazy Quaker obsession as most of you know so this was just a perfect choice to stitch!! Both of these lovelies will be such treats on our tree this year as will all the ornaments!!!
As I said before I am just loving this swap!!!!

Last night was a continuation of the Star of the Month on TCM - showcasing Carole Lombard - the flicks I got to see were some I hadn't before - and it is a shame as they were really good - We didn't get home until late so I started the evening off with "Virtue" - 1932 - bad girl goes good, but will the husband forgive her past kinda thing - I enjoyed this film and thought it had great pacing and Pat O'Brien was excellent in the roll of jerk Taxi Driver/husband. Second on the bill was "No More Orchids" - 1932 - about a society rich girl giving it all up for love - very precode in subject matter but well done and Carole couldn't have been more lovely!! Third on the bill was a very early talkie - "The Racketeer" - 1929 - very early and not such great production / print but it was very interesting to see Hedda Hopper "acting" and to see an early performance of Carole's - just beautiful and you can see the star quality shine through the pretty poor delivery.

Did some more exchnage stitching - but no snappy yet......

Thanks for stopping by!!
Take care,
edgar

Both fabulous! But I'd kill (well, almost) for the first one... sigh, need to hunt the chart somehow, I so love reindeer patterns and this one is so beautiful.
Love Staci's too, mind you!

Hope you'll publish a snap of your tree when you put it up this year! Should be something else.

The finish on the Quaker tree is perfect. The one in JCS is not too good. The ornament looks preggars.
