A Little Stitchin...

Gentle Friends...  I finished up the vine along the top border and turned the corner...

... the weekend was spent at home... napping, stitching, and movie watching.... two of the films were  "Jane Eyre," 2011, and "Immortal Beloved" 1994.

I really enjoyed this interpretation of Charlotte Bronte's 1847 book immensely.  In addition to the leads, Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre) and Michael Fassbender (Edward Rochester)  Dame Judi Dench was in the film playing Mrs. Fairfax!!  It was beautifully shot and even though I know this story well, I found the film well done and would recommend it highly.


What a super movie... and although the premise of the story is faulty, the film is really wonderful.  Again, it was a feast for the eyes and Gary Oldman  (Ludwig von Beethoven) was top notch and did a superior job at bringing back to life a bigger than life character.  I also enjoyed Isabella Rosalinin's sensitive and moving portrayal of the Hungarian Coutess Erdody.  Another two thumbs up for this film!!

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again. Stay safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good DEeds!


  1. Always look forward to your progress Edgar...and your movie recommendations as well. I only have access to movies "on demand" when I am at the lake, but am always looking for good recommendations....and these two are definitely going on my "list!" Hope your week is off to a great start! ~Robin~

  2. Your border is looking good, Edgar!

  3. Your project is looking good!
    I went through a phase in HS when all I would read was the Bronte sisters. My Math teacher lived in Lawrence KS (University of KS) and would check out their books at the KU library for me as the local library only carried works by Charlotte and Emily. Although I outgrew my phase, their books are still meaningful to me. I will definitely check out this film. Thanks for sharing!

  4. The border is really looking good. I also love that Jane Eyre movie. Thanks for the heads up on the other movie.

  5. Dearest Edgar: What a lovely border.
    Two great movie choices, I will have to look them up, I love all the actors in both movies.
