I received a nice award for my blogging and it really made my day yesterday!!! The award is a"Spreaders of Love Award" and was given by YoYo. At times I think the tangents I go on are not and could not be interesting to anyone - then I'll get a nice comment about it and feel that it was worth writing about. As so many of you know I have, and always will have, poor spelling and even worse grammar sometimes - but even with that I still keep plugging away. Keeping with the theme of spreading a little love - I need to pass on the award to 3 other blogs - I often surf around and visit dozens of blogs weekly - not just on my visiting list but through other blogs - I always am admire others stitching and finishing and there are so many people with tons of talent out there. See, another tangent - let me get back on track - There are so many but I need to narrow it down to 3 - so here goes - First up I will pass it on to Donna over at DaisyGirlStitching. She is so sweet and you have to hand it to her - she not only works in a school cafeteria but also is a School band super mom!!! Next up would have to be Coni over at Spinster Stitcher - such wonderful posts - and beautiful stitching AND a super cute Stewey-licious to boot!!! And my last but certainly not least recipient would be Margaret over at - what else - "Margaret's Blog." Her stitching is impeccable and her blog a joy to read!!! There you go - do stop by these three ladies and say Hi!! Now pass the love!!!!!!!
I finished up another exchange last night - so no pics until it arrives.
The films last night were - "The Guns of Navarone" - 1961 - A great film I have seen and talked about before. This was followed by "The Great Waltz" 1938 - The highly fictionalized life of Johann Strauss - I love this movie and the gorgeous music. I was really surprised to see it available on Netflix in DVD form - since I was sure it hadn't been released yet. When it arrived yesterday I found that it was a Chinese DVD - which believe me I have absolutely no problem with - I figure if the Hollywood Mega Machine will not release the films I want - I will get them elsewhere - and have done so on numerous occasions - The one that springs to mind is my first "All About Eve" DVD - I had it on a Chinese DVD years before it was released in a Region 1 Format. Now the problem I did have with the DVD of TGW was that I couldn't take of the subtitles - there was no button to push so the entire movie was badly translated in spots and sometimes funny!!
I am feeling a Give-away a-coming - so stay tuned next week
- Same Bat Time...Same Bat Channel!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
