East Coast - West Coast movies and some stitching

Last night on TCM were some super movies in their on going month long look at east coast vs west cost movies. The line up last night started off with "42nd Street" - 1937, starring Ruby Keeler - a young starlet makes good on the stage. Followed by "A Star is Born" - 1937, starring Janet Gaynor - a young starlet makes good on film. The next two films were "All About Eve" - 1950, starring Bette Davis - neurotic stage star frets over aging. The LA film was "Sunset Blvd." - 1950, starring Gloria Swanson - nutty film star frets over aging. These are four super movies and worth seeing if you haven't - you will not be disappointed!!!!

During all that film stuff I did some kitchen cleaning - such fun!! The way our downstairs is set up I can sort of watch TV or at least hear it while doing some grungy housework!! After all that fun I sat down and worked some on an exchange piece. Then I moved on to some stitching on Le Jardin. Here is a progress snap -

It is moving right along. I am totally enjoying stitching on this piece!!

There you go - Have a great weekend everyone!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Take care,
edgar

Oh my goodness, you stitch fast. And it's just beautiful too. You can have a go at my kitchen too, and I'll put the TV right in there for you, (LOL).

Wow Edgar, Le Jardin is gorgeous! I mayhave to scare up a copy of that magazine and add the pattern to my 'to be stiched sooner rather than later' list! I love the colors.

Melissa said...

Le Jardin is just beautiful! It's so tempting to put it on my to-stitch list!

Glenna said...

What great colors! You totally did the right thing by switching them out.
