Gentle Readers and Dear Friends it is Thursday Morning which means that Friday is just around the corner... woo hoo!!! It's cold hear and gonna rain (supposedly) later on today.... typical weather here by the Bay.
Last night, in addition to a great film, I hauled out the new sampler I'm working on and made some decisions.... 1. I was not happy with the colours - still loving the Belle soie as I always do - but not the combination of colours....and 2. Really not very happy with the way it looks on the linen - although it's a great piece of 36ct "Vintage Magnolia" - so I knew I needed to do something drastic before I got much further into this piece - I scrapped the whole darn thing!! I dug around again in the linen stash, pulled out a great piece of 36ct "Days Gone By" and changed out 4 more of the silks and re-started the border. Needless to say I am now way happy and will stitch on in over the weekend and have a snap on Monday. Sometimes you just got to start over!!
Now, the film last night was a newish DVD from Netflix - W.E. - 2011 - Starring Abbie Cornish, James D'Arcy, Andrea Riseborough and Oscar Isaac.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film and loved the way Madonna (Director) blended both stories of the past and the present together. I also loved it when both the past and present bumped up against each other. Although this film might not be for everyone and it is not a bio-pic by any stretch of the imagination - it is very interesting and beautifully shot. The locations, costumes and acting are all top notch. I think that all the actors playing playing historical personalities did a marvelous job capturing the essence of their characters. Here is the Trailer for the film.....
I would recommend it knowing that it may not be for everyone,
but I thought it was a really terrific film!!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by do stop again.
