I stitched them on a tea towel that Amy sent me - she was selling them in her shop and was sweet enough to ask my opinion on them. If she ever re-stocks them, I highly recommend them, by the way! They have a nice, open weave and are a cinch to stitch on. Are any of you doing any Halloween stitching?
Lastly, I can't believe Paul Newman is dead. He's always been one of my favorite actors - intense on film, and such a beautiful man in that rare way - both inside and out. I could watch Hud and Cool Hand Luke a million times and never tire of them. Just yesterday I was watching a film with him in it and thinking how fortunate we were that he was still alive and still so active in film and theatre. No longer.
More than that, I was inspired by the relationship he had with his wife, his generosity, and a sense of kindness and groundedness he had in all his roles. Goodbye, Paul.
