Two great movies and Brownies!!!!

When I got home I just caught the tail end of "Raintree County," 1957 on TCM. As you know I am a great fan of Elizabeth Taylor's and this is one of her great movie rolls with her looking absolutely scrumptious!!!!! I have yet to see it come out in DVD form (except for the Asian knockoffs) and wish that it would!!!

After RC was over TCM Continuined on with the 31 Days of Oscar, by showing two 1939 mega hits!! "Gone with the Wind" and "Wuthering Heights." Can we say Spectacular - Spectacular!!!!!! So it was a very good night at the movies!!!! I think that February has become one of my favorite TCM months!!!

I also got up the nerve to make some brownies!!! Now I can make them from scratch but that box o'mix from Miss Crocker was just calling my name!!! After throwing in a cup and half of pecans into the mix they were super delicious!!!!!

I am not that big of a fan of chocolate but for dark chocolate brownies with pecans
I am just a pushover!!!!!

I also worked on QC some - I started the last full big medallion - it has a lot of stitches in it so I did not finish but here is a snap of what I got done -

I need to chart out my initials for that wreath and get those in there....

Thats about all there is today. Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Take care,


  1. brownies are my favorite! I love you progress on QC, home stretch now!

  2. Those brownies look delicious! QC too!

    Did you know that Elizabeth Taylor not only has violet eyes she has a double set of eyelashes too? No idea where I read that but no wonder she has the most gorgeous eyes!

  3. Ummmm brownies and pecans! Love that combination...I can taste one now! Nearing the end of QC-you'll be finished in no time.

  4. Wow, Edgar! You are cooking with gas with AQC - I love it!

  5. Portions of "Raintree County" were filmed here in Kentucky. This past year in Danville, KY, they had a festival to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the movie...here's the website if you're interested in reading up on it: http://www.raintreecountyfestival.com/

    Brownies...yum! My favorite way to eat a brownie is warm with a scoop of mint ice cream...pure heaven on earth! LOL!

  6. Hi Edgar,
    I got my diagram from you today! Now I just need the pattern! Hope it comes in the mail tomorrow!

  7. Yumyum, those brownies look tasty! As does QC :o) AND ET.
