Gentle Friends since I have been doing next to no stitching posts while I count down some fun films I thought I might just throw in an update on the Christmas Band sampler I have sort of been working on..... it seems that every evening I am just busy doing something other than stitching..... I guess it's that time of year!! Well, here it is, the update...
... I am actually a bit more along than this, but not much! I really love the colours that are used. I am thinking that things will actually slow down over the weekend and I'll get some big chunks of stitching time in - so I am anticipating this being much further along by next week - fingers crossed.
For the #5 spot I have picked a modern film, in fact a modern British/American 3D Animated film......
"Arthur Christmas" - 2011 - starring James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Stauton and Ashley Jensen - the story is set on Christmas eve and the youngest son of Santa, Arthur, learns that a present was not delivered and a child would wake up with nothing from Santa. Arthur makes it his mission to deliver the present. With the help of his grand father, the retired Santa Claus, Byrony, and elf, and the old fashioned reindeer and sleigh delivery system they take on the mission.
I really enjoyed this film and found the story line of a dysfunctional "Santa" family and the power struggle as to who will be the next "Santa" very entertaining. There have been many films over the years with the "save Christmas" theme, but this one has a different twist to it and I think it quite charming. It is available on both DVD and Blu Ray - so get a copy and give it a chance, I think you'll enjoy it!!
Here's the trailer for the film from You Tube....
That's about it for today sports fans - thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!!
