An Award

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!
Take care,

You are way cool! I enjoy reading your blog everyday. I get into work very early (6a) and actually have to wait for you to post! Keep up your fantastic stitching (seriously, you are so fast, I'm thinking bionic hands!) and your great movie reviews.

You so deserve your award Edgar and I agree with your choice of blogs to forward the honour to - all 3 SBs deserve it too!

Have a great weekend and Happy Valentine's Day to you and Rico.

You deserve the award :) I love reading your post that go off track thats what make them so great that is probably how you carry on a conversation in real life and what makes it so fun to read.

Also ou list movies that I probably never would have watched or heard of if it were not for your movie posts.

So blog away :)
Take Care

Did you ever see Bullet in the Head? (Probably not your kind of movie.) One of the translations is, "I'll!"
instead of I will. Cracks me up every time.

Congrats on your award. Coni cracks me up daily, and I can't wait to check out your other suggestions.

Coni said...

Woo Hoo! I am humbled and completely not worthy of your award, but I do so love it when somebody spreads the love! Thank you from the bottom of my pitiful little heart!
