As many of you know, I have been watching all of the Best Picture winners as part of my 101 Things in 1001 Days list. Of course, this time of year is always important to me – the nominations and the actual Academy Awards, but this year it will mean I have another film to add to my list. The nominees were announced, and here they are for Best Picture:
Letters from Iwo Jima
Little Miss Sunshine
I have not seen any of these, but have heard good things about them all. My good friend, Sherri, and I are having a girl’s night out tonight and we are going to see The Queen. I am really looking forward to it. Plus, there will be Mexican Food – my favorite! I’ll let you know how the film is. And, then I will watch to see which one wins for Best Picture, so that I can add it to my list! We have Gentleman’s Agreement at home to watch for our next film….maybe this weekend.
In stitching news…I’ve been all over the place. You may remember, that I was stitching on Queen of the Needle as my “on the go” project…
Well, I stopped working on it, it order to work on this…
All my threads haven’t come in for it, so I started working on this…
See…I’m crazy with the projects. I decided since it was the middle of January, that I’d best get to work on my February sheep blanket (by the way, I have heard that with the release of the last three charts, they will be discontinuing the sheep and his blankets – so get them if you want them!). Well, my threads that I ordered on January 1st, still have not shown up. So, I have stitched all that I can stitch on my little blanket until they do. So, rather than going back to QOTN, I decided I’d work on something small. I pulled out the next (third in the series) Shepherd’s Bush ornament to stitch on. This one is Shepherds Watched. Hopefully, my thread will come soon, and I can get that February blanket done.
Thanks to everyone who left kind words in the comments – I really really appreciate all of your support and thoughts. If it weren’t for the idea of this being an interactive space, I would just stick with my journal…but I love blogging and the opportunity it affords me to hear from all of you and share my thoughts and projects. Thanks again!
