[Each of the twelve days from Christmas Day to January 5, you stitch on something related to that day's theme - A partridge in a pear tree, etc. Being the traditionalist that I am, I am stitching, yes, you guessed it! The 12 Days of Christmas!]
The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's 12 Days of Christmas
Stitched on 28ct Cashel linen, Serenity.
Mixture of suggested floss and my own choices.
And, as it is so very hot here at the moment (30 degrees celsius/86 degrees fahrenheit overnight!!!!!), I woke up very early this morning, watched a movie (Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren in Arabesque - what's not to love?) and got a good head start on Day Five - pic to come next post).
One positive of this very hot weather is some spectacular sunsets.....
I actually went to the movies, again, yesterday. This time with my Dear younger sister. We went to see La La Land...
Now, I know that this has been getting rave reviews but .... I didn't love it, I really wanted to, but I just didn't. I thought that Emma Stone was great but Ryan Gosling just didn't really seem to love her enough in the movie, I thought, to make their romance really real for me. Don't get me wrong, I am happy to have seen it but I would only give it Four Stars, not the Five Stars that every one else seems to be giving it.
Now, a movie that I would give Five Stars to, every single time, is The Princess Bride, which all watched on Netflix last night. Such a wonderful film! (Too hot to do much except watch movies or the test cricket on TV).
Just to finish off, here is another video, this is Furio, going ga ga for my chlorine laden shoes after I came back from water aerobics. Does anyone have any idea as to why he would do that?
That is all from me for today,
