2 New finishes

Hello Everyone, It's taken me awhile on the Halloweenies, Frog was around and I ripped and ripped some more! LOL  One little dog was on the fabric and off the fabric about a million times.  Now I have to make up my mind if I am going to make a pillow out of it or get it framed??

Next I stitched a square on a round robin belonging to my friend Debi.  Something totally different from what I would stitch, it is really pretty and was fun to stitch to me it looks like stained glass.

Next is a Biscornu for an exchange, so more later:) and hopefully a picture soon of the finished biscornu.

Thanks for all of your nice comments.

A Small Update & A Great Giveaway

Hi Everyone well this is just a small update I have been working on Plumstreet Samplers Halloweenies really cute and I love the colors, Gentle Arts threads, the only problem is I needed 2 skeins of Raven I called the LNS that I buy from and they're out so will have to wait for a few days to get my skein of floss, so if anyone is planning on stitching this one be sure and buy 2 skeins of Raven. I will in the meantime go back to my Prairie Schooler Christmas Village.

Also Nancy of victorian motto sampler shoppe is having a great giveaway something and stitcher would love to have. So go check it out.

It's Finished!

I just finished stitching This "Something In Common" called Cabin Fever. I really like the way it came out. Almost hate to give it up, but it has to go to it's new home:) Now I'm going to stitch a LK Flip-it it's an SAL with one of my groups. Decided I needed to do another small piece so I feel like I'm accomplishing something.

Also here is an update on Holly the kitty. She has had lots of health issues but is doing well now and she plays like crazy. The bad part is she likes to play at 2AM!! LOL She did have a surprise last night we had 3 raccoon's fighting on our front porch and one of them came to the window and was looking in at Holly. You could tell by the way she sat there she didn't know what to do. Wish I had a picture of it because it was cute. Anyway here is a picture of Holly from this afternoon.
