Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you again for your kind comments regarding ATS, it is a monster stitch but a great piece to work on!! I had a quick question about the linen I am using, it is a piece from LL, and is 36ct, Vintage Sand Dune. I wasn't up to 40ct when I started it, but I am working myself up to 40 ct.... or at least I have a few cuts of it in my stash! I also had a question about how I handle the linen as I stitch. With this being a much largest piece that I have ever worked with - how I handle it is.... I am still using my trusty 8 inch Q-Snap and just move it back and forth and downwards as I stitch, the extra linen (and there's quite a bit) I just loosely roll up and rest in a heap on top of my knees and top of the Q-Snap and the bottom I roll up and rest in my lap - I sort of slouch when I stitch, but hey, that works for my.... bad posture!
On Saturday I did get a chance to run around to my usual haunts, not much out there at the shops or Estate Sales, but I did find three things to add to my ever growing DVD collection.....
... I found a two disc set of 16 episodes of "Petticoat Junction" - 1963-1970 - I have always enjoyed this show and the antics taking place at The Shady Rest Hotel, down in Hooterville!! Here's the TV Intro......
I also got a copy of "Designing Woman" - 1957 - a great romantic comedy, and the third film I found was "Spaceballs" - 1987 - a great parody of the Star Wars movie machine! Here's the Theatrical Trailer...
There were some other films I passed on - I usually pass on discs that are in iffy condition, smudges and dirt I can deal with, but scratches are another thing.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
