Silky mail and some flickers

Yesterday some silk came from Drema - Needlecraft Corner - she was having a sale on Gloriana Silk and I am a sucker for silk so how could I refuse...


Other stitchy snaps are basically none existent as all the stitching for the past few days has been on exchanges and things I can not show yet.
This weekend I will stitch on something I can have a snap for Monday.

I have been seeing some really super movies lately and I wanted to tell about. The first and foremost would have to be "Mrs. Palfrey and the Claremont" - 2005 - starring Joan Plowright, Rupert Friend and Anna Massey. What a super movie!! I defy anyone who watches this movie not to be moved! I just loved this film and would highly recommend it!! The next two films were a Bing Crosby double feature - starting off with "The Emperor Waltz" - 1948 - his costar was Joan Fontaine - the other film was " A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" - 1949 - co-star here Rhonda Fleming. Both films are sort of musicals with some super songs, lavish productions and lovely leading ladies - nice easy flicks to watch. If you like cute stories nice music and pretty films then these are a pair for you (I really enjoyed them!! and hadn't seen them for a really long time). The last flick is one I always enjoy and have seen many times - "The Age of Innocence" - 1993 - a Martin Scorsese film starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Winona Ryder and Michelle Pfeiffer - the story is from the book by Edith Wharton - a writer whose works I just love - and the film is a very good adaptation - both lush and intimate with wonderful acting, sets and costumes. It is a period drama set in the NY of the early 1870's and worth seeing if you haven't.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!!

Take care,
edgar

Silks are so yummy. I haven't tried Gloria yet, but those really make me want to! Bing is a big favorite here, loved those movies!

Check my blod, Edgar. A surprise for you.

Never tried stitching with silk yet. This "economic downturn" thing prevents it right now. Don't think I'd have the gift for it either. Have tried some DMC rayons and it was absolute torture.
Loved "Age of Innocence." The costumes are truly amazing.

Those silks are beautiful.

Those are some pretty colors. I'm about to start my first silk project and I must say, I'm having my doubts, but looking at all the beautiful projects on your blog is certainly helping to put me at ease. I can't wait to see what you do with your new threads!

I just watched the Age of Innocence last weekend and loved it! I sometimes wish I lived back in those times.
