VOHRH stitching and a movie....

Monday nights are VOHRH and I worked on it a little and got some of the green words done as doing brown lines was getting a bit tedious. Also if I am to finish a square a month then I need to work on the actual square don't ya think!! :) I don't know why but I was a bit intimidated to start this last night, but I overcame that little bit of trepidation and dove right in.

Sorry that it's all crooked, it didn't look like that when I took the picture,
it must have happened in the camera, yea, that's right.... in the camera!! :)

I also watched a movie last night. Now hold on to yourself, (drum roll) it was actually a movie from 2001!! Can you believe it, a colour movie and from this decade!!! The title was The Shipping News. I checked it out through Greencine. I threw it onto my queue because the actors are Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench, Julianne Moore and Kevin Spacey. I really liked the Cate/Judie dynamic in "Notes on a Scandal" and thought this earlier piece would be really worth watching. It starts off in Upstate NY but most of the Movie takes place in Newfoundland. The cinematography is just gorgeous and the story although odd is really quite good. The novel won the National Book Award in 1993 and the Pulitzer prize for fiction for 1994. It was written by Annie Proulx who also wrote Brokeback Mountain .
This is worth a viewing.

Thanks for stopping by, and thank you all for the nice comments,
it really makes my day to read the nice things people have to say!!!!!!!!!!

Take care,


  1. I read The Shipping News, did you read it? I usually don't like the movie if I've read the book (and vice versa!) I sorta have a picture in my head reading a book and for some reason, movie directors/producers just don't do it my way!!!!!

  2. Great stitching going on here! I actually laughed when you said your rotation lasted a day! :D

    I have EOL too, don't know when I'll get around stitching it! :(

  3. Great start on VoHRH! You'll be glad you got so much gridding done later, that's the part I really don't enjoy doing.

  4. Can you tell me what VOHRH stands for? Since you don't have any tags on your posts I can't find where you mention the name the first time.

    I always like doing the grid work/squares first. That way I always feel a sense of accomplishment when I get a square completely filled in.

  5. Hi Edgar,
    Your new piece looks great. I'm waiting on a couple of flosses to come in the mail before I can finish your RR. Hope they get here soon! I hate not working on your RR, but I did finish my Halloween exchange. Now just need to try to finish it into a tin.

  6. Oh I loved all her books. But the movie, Brokeback Mountain was WONDERFUL!
    Your stitching looks great and glad you are joining us for the SAL for VOHRH over at Handy Dyed Fibers.
