I waited. And waited. And it seemed like it took forever for Miss Potter to finally come to our little burg. We saw the movie tonight and it was SO Beautiful. I loved it. Like I haven't loved a movie for several years. I had tears in my eyes from the very first scene and they were there for the whole movie, even during the many humorous parts. (And I wasn't the only one -- there was a lot of sniffling going on in that theater.) What a tender, endearing movie. Renee Zellweger was wonderful. *Sigh.* I feel like I should say it completes me. If you have a chance to see it, I highly recommend it! (And just a note, the picture I'd really like to have here would be the pumpkin coach with the bunnies pulling it -- was that adorable or what???) Needless to say, the DVDwill be at the top of my wish list for Christmas this year.

Now, on another note, the very sweet GardenGirl over at LavenderDaze has nominated me for a Thinking Blogger award. I'm very touched and humbled and just don't know what to say, except that "I'm not worthy." And to prove my point, as a recipient, you are supposed to nominate 5 more blogs -- your favorites that make you think. It's very ironic, for as I just stated in my favorites post, there's no way that I can choose among the blogs I frequent. Some of the blogs I love are listed over in the sidebar, but that list is so incomplete. My current bloglines counter is over 100, and it keeps growing. (Speaking of which, I have a little beef with bloglines -- it doesn't seem to always update. As a recent example, GardenGirl had a wonderful post about a baby knitting book that looks great and I completely missed it. How'd that happen? For one thing, I'm sure my new-grandma quilty friend Gurney might be interested in this book.) So, I nominate them all. Thank you so much GardenGirl. If you haven't checked our her blog, run right over there -- it's SO pretty and peaceful. You'll feel refreshed when you're done reading!

Off to a quilt show tomorrow. Hopefully it will be worthy of a report!

Oh my goodness! How did I not know about this movie?!? I love Beatrix Potter, and it looks like a really sweet movie. (Plus it has Ewan MacGregor in it!) I've gotta track this down.

Thanks Thimbleanna! I now have to add this to my wish list of knitting books! Probably close to the top of the list. You know me too well. Hope you guys have fun today. Wish I could have gone with you. XOXO Gurney

Yup, I loved Miss Potter too. Sat there smiling benignly and getting teary the whole way through. And double yes - I keep missing posts via Bloglines too, glad it's not just me.n

I didn't even know this was a movie. (I'm a little out of the loop where TV is concerned...). Thanks for bringing it to my attention--I'll have to check our theatres! It looks delightful.

Congratulations on the nomination! I'm enjoying your blog.

I still have not been able to see that movie, but I am sure it will be on DVD soon enough!
