I noticed that I reached 500 posts yesterday and just can not believe I have written so many posts. When I started this blog a couple of years ago I had no idea I would still be enjoying and babbling along into cyber space AND that anyone would be interested in anything I had to say EVER!!! I guess that so long as things move along at an even pace and there are not too many bumps in the road I will keep chit chatting about things that pop into my head or out of the needle!!
Yesterday brought a couple of packages in the mail. On of them was a bunch of floss' I needed for some Christmas Prezzies - you got that - I wrote Christmas Prezzies!! If I don't get myself situated now and start a'stitchin' there is no way in the world that I will have anything completed by the time December rolls around. With all the exchange stuff I love to do and extra things I want to stitch for folks I need to get moving on those Yuletide deadlines. I wonder if it is only me or is anyone else looking that far forward?? Those floss's that came still astonish me - as I always wonder that with already having so many choices in the stash pile - that I still need to get more colours for projects - what's with that??
The mail also brought a great prize I won from Cindy - she was having a great give away of charts and I won a PS chart I had loaned out that just never made it back to me - but those are the chances you take when you loan something out I guess!!
I was so happy to get this as I really like this chart and have done a few.
The stitching last night was all exchange related once again.
There where a couple of flicks last night on TCM - with the on going Director Tribute it was Fred Zinnemanns turn - they showed "Oklahoma" - 1955 - his only musical film - starring Shirley Jones and Gordon MacRea. I love this musical and have seen it many times - I can highly recommend it!! This was followed by another super film "From Here to Eternity" - 1953 - starring Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift and playing against type Donna Reed and Deborah Kerr - another stupendous film that I really enjoy!! This is turning out to be a super month on TCM.
Thanks for stopping by!! I really appreciate all the nice comments !!!
