One of the coolist books out there ( My Opinion). I was first introduced to this masterpiece when I was in high school in south Texas( 9 th grade). I had the BEST English teacher. She taught me sooo much in 1 year than all of those English teachers put together. Funny how somtimes things like that happen.
Ever since High school I have watched this movie around Christmas. Something about the wind howling and snow drifting. Very dark movie. My husband tolerates watching it.
The actors are at the their castle on the moors. They went there since they were children. What PASSION .
These pictures are from the old black and white movie. I have a copy of it .
I think I have 2 different copys of the book. They are different from the movie.
I love the Bronte sisters. Emily Bronte wrote Wuthering Heights in 1847. I think she was 30. She died the next year. This is her only book publication. She had 2 sisters and 1 brother. You might remember Charlotte Bronte she wrote Jane Eyre. Another Tragic LOVE story.

I felted this BIG Bag months ago. I could not figure out what to do with it.
Should I use the handles that I braided felted????? Or should I do something different?Should I line it??
The Bag meassures 13 inches tall and 22 inches long. Nice Big Bag for everything.

I can't seem to find it in my papers. Yes I have a ton of patterns. Some are organized and some are not.
A quick fact about this bag. If you are going to line it.... LINE IN FIRST BEFORE YOU DO THE HANDELS............ Because of the way it gathers. Line it while it is flat.Then I did the lining in October.
How about the flower????
They were knitting socks, bags, hats, afghans, shawls, vests,baby afghans, and so on. They invited me back for next week. It is pot lock night. So I should bring something.Last night the lady that owns the shop had split pea soup and cookies and tea. I love tea. I was working on my scarf while I was there. One women had just finished this bag I saw at knitpicks new catalog. It is called Sipalu Bag . It looked soooo hard. She the people at knipicks really helped her with the pattern. She did not want to take to our local yarn shop cause she did not buy it there. But she brought it to show us the finished bag. It was Awesome.

We enjoy our fish. There is even a Aquarium Society in our area. It is alot of fun to go to fish auctions around here. The big boy up top is a Texas Ciclid. My husband bought him when he was itty bitty. Now he is huge. I did not care for him to much at first. You would be surprise the personality of a fish.
This is the first time I ever made a pocket in the lining. It turned out pretty good. Plus I bought the magnetic snap closure. The lining is plain because that was all i had that matched.
