Another finish!!!

I finished Blackbird Designs Moonlit Garden. It is so pretty. I really want to frame this for October. This was a fairly quick stitch. Once the house and moon were completed, everything else came together pretty quickly. A friend told me that the pattern would sell on eBay for a nice price. I checked out current auctions and was surprised at some of the prices. Of course, since Tucker (my 4 year old nephew) sat on the pattern, I can't advertise it as mint condition.

I am also working on Halloween Line Up. This is a lot of fun. I really like the spiders. I have two more lines (pumpkins and owls) at the top and then the row of trick-or-treaters at the bottom. This should be finished soon.

Well, I don't have any other photos to share, but I am working on a few other projects. I have Nicholas's stocking. The stitching is slow, but I am oh so close to finishing the leaves. I really believe that once I finish the leaves, the rest will move at a much quicker pace.

I also started a Tournicoton pattern. It is a Halloween pattern that is really cute. It is all DMC floss, so I am making great progress with it. I will try to post a picture later this week.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Happy Labor Day!!

I know, I know, I have been very bad about updating my blog. But, I have been very busy, really. Of course, the boys went back to school at the beginning of August and my classes started in the middle of August. Even though I am only teaching 3 classes I have over 300 students to deal with. To top that off, I had to fly to Dubuque last week for a meeting about the textbook. AND I have been sick most of the last two weeks. So, there are my excuses.

But, I do have some stitching to share. I finished the LK Boo Club. Isn't is adorable? This was a very quick and fun stitch. Can't wait to get it framed.

After finishing this, I have been bitten by the Halloween/Autumn bug and have picked several appropriate projects. I am so very close to finishing the Moonlit Garden piece from Blackbird Design. I have just a few more stars, leaves, and a pumpkin to stitch and then the verse. This is my project for the rest of the night.

I have several other fall themed patterns kitted and will show some pictures of those when I have enough stitched to be recognizable.

One last picture to leave you with. This is Josey, our wild cat. She is almost a year old. It is amazing how big she has gotten. When I first brought her home she could fit under a ball cap.

Have a great week.
