Some shopping, RR pattern and a movie...

We went shopping last night for a new suit for Rico and his upcoming super job interview on Friday, fingers crossed as it is a great opportunity!!!! What we decided on and finally bought was a single breasted in a basic dark charcoal grey with the tiniest of pinstripes of black and light grey - very banker like and conservative!

The only stitching related thing I did last night was work on the upcoming Halloween RR. What I did was tape together a few pieces of graph paper to make a really big piece that mirrors my linen. I am taking bits and pieces from a couple of places and placing it all out to see if it will fit. Basically it is me cutting up copies of the different things I want to stitch around and the 7 50 x 50 squares and even drawing the recharting on the paper itself fitting it all on the giant pattern. It seems pretty tedious but I want to make sure that there is enough room everywhere for everything I want include. I hope it isn't to ambitious...... :) I'll take a snap when it is a little more presentable.

The movie that I watched while working the RR pattern was "Mrs. Henderson Presents " -2005 with the ever fabulous Judi Dench and Bob Hoskins. What a great movie about a very wealthy widow who buys a theatre in 1937 and continues its operation through the Blitz of London during WWII. I would highly recommend this flick just to watch Judi and Bob work together and play off of each other.

Thank you all for the nice comments!!!! I really appreciate them!!! and Thank you for stopping by once again to read my babbling - this blogging is so cathartic!! Did everyone see that I missed my Blogaversary back on May 9th!?!? I think I need to run some sort of give away contest for that milestone!!!!! I will post about that on Friday. ( I need to think a day or so )

Take care,
