A Replacement Piece

GR&DF The flicks last night were really great, I hope you got a chance to see part of the film fest.  Tonight the films are grouped around Jack Nicholson - starting off with "Five Easy Pieces" - 1970 - , then "Terms of Endearment"  - 1983 -  and rounding out the evening with "Easy Rider" - 1969.   All three are fine films , but I have seen them before but tonight I am getting two Netflix DVD's so it will be a Netflix evening.  
__________
I heard from Lynn B that the replacement ornament arrived.  She was my partner for the HOE Ornie Exchange and the first ornament never arrived - I guess I am pretty lucky that in all the years I have been doing Exchanges that only a few pieces have gone missing.  Not a good thing, but sometimes it happens..... so I stitched up and made this piece to replace the one that went missing....

It is a Prairie Schooler chart from Book 166 Snowy Night.  I really like this Book and this is one is a real winner - it was fun to make and I do hope that Lynn enjoys this piece.  Have you seen the previews for the 4 new Books that PS is releasing at Market -  4 more winners!!!!  I really love the Russian inspired Eggs one!!!  I can't find the site the was previewing them, sorry - they will soon be out.

There you go sports fans.  Thanks again for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

Such a lovely ornament Edgar - I love those bright red cardinals! You are a wonderful exchange partner to make sure your person received an ornament! Now I'm going surfing to see if I can find the new PS releases!

I'm glad that your replacement piece arrived - it's beautiful.

Enjoy your Jack Nicholson films.

I watched "The Last Station" - it was slow to get going, but ended up being an enjoyable film, if you're looking for recommendations.

Beautiful! Thanks again Edgar :-)

Love the PS ornament!! Too bad the other one was lost.

Started watching "Henry" last night, but ended up changing over to a previous recording from TMC of "Topper" and "Topper Returns"...love me some Cary Grant! I hate that he didn't do the "Return" though. I think tonight is a Netflix night for me too...The Tudors, Season 1, Disc 3...I can't wait to see what havoc Henry wreaks tonight, LOL! What a twit he was...and somehow, I don't see the real Henry as looking anywhere as good our boy, Jonathan Rhys!! LOL!

Happy Stitchin'

Lovely stitching on the replacement ornament. Love the pretty design!

The new PS charts are quite nice, as usual.

Hey Edgar! The site that is taking pre-orders on the PS designs is

The eggs are lovely. PS had a similar set (3 different designs) in the October issue of Gift of Stitching magazine; here -

back issues are still available on that magazine. All the best!

Looks great! The pics that I saw were pretty blurry, so I'm looking forward to being able to see some clearer images soon! :D

Hi Edgar,

What a great ornament. I think it's my favorite from that leaflet.

Thanks so much for leaving me a comment on my blog!

Enjoy your movies tonight.

It's a shame the other piece went missing, but this one is so pretty! I just love those little PS designs. The Folk Art eggs are awesome - can't wait for those.

Hi Edgar! I absolutely LOVE the red cardinals in that ornament! Beautiful! I have seen those Jack Nicholson flick, so I have a Netflix movie I may pop in called, "The Blue Butterfly'. Funny, I have never seen it but everyone I tell about it, takes in their breath and proceeds to tell me what a great movie it is! We shall see! Hugs.

Vanessa said...

Edgar, I saw the new Prairie Schooler charts on the Silver Needle website, they are really cute and your ornament is quite nice.

Jeanne said...

Lovely ornament Edgar! You know last year I watched Five Easy Pieces for the first time - had always heard of it and assumed it was a "classic". I thought it was awful - is it just me? Maybe it was of those movies that don't age well, I don't know. Usually I like most Jack Nicholson movies so it was a surprise to not like it.

Alice said...

Pretty birds! I love Cardinals and their song which sounds to me just like 'pretty bird, pretty bird'. They know their stuff. That is a very pretty ornament.

Jennifer said...

I had intented to read all of your recent posts that I've missed, do to computer "illness" and just pure laziness. Then you had to mention 4 new Prairie Schooler books, so I'm off on the search!
BTW, have you watched the new BBC/PBS Masterpiece series, Downton Abbey? Very similar to Upstairs-Downstairs. Loving the costumes.
Thanks for the great Royalty mags that arrived two days ago!!!

Has anyone told you lately how much you header picture is loved? I just love seeing all of the finished designs displayed in a circle - I love to see them layed out flat also.

Happy Stitching!
