Bright Star

Have any of you seen the movie Bright Star? I enjoyed it, but wouldn't say that it was a favorite. I did however, fall in love with the costumes and a few of the scenes – especially the opening scene that is a closeup of a needle and thread being pulled through the most gauzy-looking white fabric. As soon as I watched it I had the urge to sew something by hand. So, I bought some silky sheer fabric and hemmed it by hand to make a scarf. It looks pretty rough if you look closely, but the urge was satisfied. Like scratching a little itch you know?

yup, i saw it. much dissapointment with the movie, but the costumes and settings were fantastic. i wanted to watch the movie after seeing just the one scene of her bedroom--wish the theme was carried out in the whole movie along with a better plot :)
