Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you for the kind comments and wonderful emails about my version of Carol's SAL!! I am really enjoying the whole piece and will certainly miss the SAL once it is over.
Last night I worked on getting my "Christmas Rules" completed. If you remember I finished this piece last year, but was not happy with the way the button accents looking so big on 36ct linen I used. I got them off and then decided to accent mine with some beads - well, that is what I worked on doing and finished getting the beads on. What may you ask lit a fire to get me moving on that piece??? Two reasons - firstly - this great piece had languished in the "stitching basket" far too long and secondly - it is going off to be framed.
Last night the film was "Half a Sixpence" - 1967 - starring Tommy Steele and Julia Foster
A nice story about an orphan, Arthur Kipps, who works for and tyrannical boss. His life turns upside down when he inherits a fortune at his grandfather's death. The songs overall are bright a cheerful - the musical numbers do tend to the long side. Originally a stage play the movie version often suffers and has a stagy feel about it. Overall a pleasant film. Here is a You Tube "clip of clips" from the film....
At about 143 minutes it gets a bit long winded, but just push through the Intermission.
There you go sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do come again.
