Gentle Friends thank you so much for your kind comments and emails, it does me no end of good to read them!!
Last night I was kind of at a loss as to what to pick up ... ATS was calling my name, but I didn't want to haul her out and set everything in motion for a stitchity evening.... So I thought about it for about 10 seconds and decided to pull out CC "November Cottage" and make a start - by make a start I mean see what floss I was changing and what I was keeping. I finally decided on this configuration...
I knew I was tossing out WDW Grapefruit - way to odd a shade of pink/orange for me.
So, the line up is as follows:
I changed DMC 436 to HSH Autumn Gold, I am keeping DMC 3031 (It is only use a little bit), As usual I am sticking with DMC B5200 for the white, For the GAST Harvest Moon (I have three skeins of this and it varies from a pale yellowish to a light orange) I changed this to CC Sassy Brass, I'm keeping WDW Mocha, I'm Keeping WDW Kudzu, and for WDW Grapefruit I changed this to WDW Indian Summer (probably my favourite WDW colour) As you can see I kept a good number of the designers choices.... now I can't wait to see what December brings.... wouldn't it be great if it were a log cottage/cabin with pine trees!!!
I got in the mail a Netflix DVD of a newly released film - "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" - 2012 - with an ensemble cast of great British talent this was a really enjoyable film.
The basic premise of the film is about a group of retirees moving to India, for all different reasons and moving into a dilapidated Hotel. To varying degrees they adapt to the country, food and people - and then again some just do not or will not adapt. The film is lush and beautiful and makes Jaipur India look superb with all the warm colours and exotic places - along with the warm friendly people that they all meet - as the movie swiftly moves to an end the story lines are wrapped up and the 2 hours of film just seem to have flown by.
I think a couple of the funniest lines are said by "hip replacement " candidate Muriel, Played by Maggie Smith, "At my age, I can't plan that far ahead..... I don't even buy green bananas' - another great line is "If I can't pronounce it, I don't want to eat it." She brings with her a supply of HobNob's (both plain and chocolate) and candy to sustain her. I would totally recommend this film.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!
