Colin Firth in 'The King's Speech'

Hi Sweeties,

I must admit that I am a Colin Firth fan. First film I ever saw him in was the 2x Bridget Jones Diary movies and I just fell, hook, line and sinker.! lol.

Then I saw him in Pride and Prejudice and yes girls, he will always be Mr. Darcy to me..

Aaahhhhhh..........Those dimples.....!!!!

Was so happy to see Colin Firth in 'The King's Speech' , this week, and I've got to say it was a great movie in everyway. Actors were supurb, heart breaking moments when you just want to rush up and give Colin (as King George VI) a hug for trying so hard. Enough light humor to keep it entertaining and great to learn a more intimate side to the Royal family and how they were brought up as children.

Colin Firth and Gefforey Rush were excellent and I'm really hoping Colin will get an oscar for his role. Besides who can resist a handsome man in uniform..!!

Hugs, Susi xoxo

3x Sanman Valentine Finishes

Hi Sweeties,

Yes I know I've been a very bad blogger and not made a post in a long while. Thing is have been going through some health problems both myself and older sister, and not been doing much stitching lately.

Have made a New Year's Resolution though to try and finish as many WIP's this year as I can. Sad to say I have more than I thought I did.? Whoops :)
Anyway here are 3x finishes for Valentine's. All are stitched with my own hand dyed flosses, and on linen.
Be True - Sanman Originals Design
Bee Mine - Sanman Original Designs.
Valentine Love - Sanman Original Designs.

This one is my favourite as I love the roses. Have some lovely pink fabric that matches this design and am seriously thinking of making it up as a pretty pillow with white lace.

Hugs to all,
Susi xoxo
