WMHB and some movies...

I made some pretty good progress last night -
here is a snap of the "Blooming" sampler as it stands now -

Sorry about it being so crooked - :)

The movies last night where NetFlix selections - I got all three yesterday - The first was a documentary about Irish Country Houses that was unwatchable as the disc was a total mess, sound wise and digitization so that went back in the sleeve within 5 mins - then it was on the the other two selections - both of them made in this century!! Imagine that!!! The first was "Housewife, 49" - 2006 - an excellent made for TV movie dramatizing the real life WWII Diary of an English Housewife, Nella Last. I really enjoyed this piece and would recommend it to anyone - it is about an hour and a half so it is not too long. The second movie was recommended to me - "My Blueberry Nights" - 2007 - about a journey to find oneself and then end up back where you started or there's no place like home - It was fine for a single viewing - but the way I have heard some people go on about this flick - I just didn't see it.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Take care,


  1. Your house is lovely Edgar - just look at the delicious strawberry border - yummy!

    I saw Housewife 49 when they first showed it on UK tv - I thought it was brilliant too.

  2. Blooming looks fantastic...seeing yours makes me want to stitch it too!!!

  3. Look at your progress! It is flying (or it seems that way to me)!
