Marigold and Trees

Hi everyone,

Last Wednesday my friend Anne and I went to see “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”, movie and enjoyed every minute. Maggie Smith was amazing and it was quite strange not to hear her rather refined speaking voice (as in Downtown Abbey) in this part she plays the part with a more “working class” tone. In equal parts it made you want to weep and then, moment’s later laugh. You come out of the cinema feeling good and that you had just spent 2 hours very well indeed. Go see it if you get the chance.
On the stitching front, here is some further work on My Little Trees. I think I will have to do some more of Keslyn’s designs, they are all quite small designs and fit in well as in-betweeners while stitching on larger projects.

Lara over at Diet Pepsi and Xanax blog posted about some amazing counted canvas stitchers from Russia. I had a look at their blog, needlepoint-club. The stitching is amazing with some really fantastic photographs of their finished projects. Really beautiful girls, I am in awe of your talents. Looking forward to future projects.
Happy Easter to you all, bye for now Carol.
