A Finish, A Giveaway and A Movie

First off I have another finish that I just love. This design by La D Da was a really fun stitch and it worked up really fast. It's stitched on 36ct. Days Gone By linen using HDF silks by Vikki Hastings. I finished it like the directions with a little bit of a twist. On the back I blanket stitched a heart on a pocket that has a touch of creamlace at the top. This will make a great way to carry my Blackberry and maybe slip a little money in the back pocket.
Next is about my next giveaway. I have started the stitching and hopefully will have the prize finished by saturday. I will tell you this....the colors are white fabric with stitching in a medium green and a medium peach. Tantalizing isnt it? Well you'll just have to wait a few days.
Thirdly is about a movie I just watched. My husband and I are great fans of the director James Cameron and we have been waiting patiently for his movie Avatar to be released on dvd. My hubby can't go to movies because of his deafness so we wait patiently for their release. I wish I could describe the colors in this film. The entire movie, I was sitting here trying to match the colors with DMC floss. LOL I know I am either going to design something or else take an existing design and try to duplicate the colors. I wish I had seen this movie on the big screen to get a better look at them. If you haven't seen this movie, it is well worth it just for the photography. Let me know what you think about it if you have seen it.
That's all for now. I will keep you posted on the giveaway so stay tuned.
As always, Barbara
