I wanted to mention a SAL we have going on with our Yahoo group. It's for the little Stitcher's Alphabet freebies designed by Brooke. You don't have to be a member of our group to join...the blog for it is here. Just shoot me an email if you'd like an invite. I've posted my current ABC WIP there.

This is the one I had problems with....and they were operator errors not pattern flaws. I had ironed on my fusible webbing and was starting to cut...while distracted by rowdy children...and along the back side to the heel I cut right up against the webbing not adding the 1/4" seam allowance! I about had a melt down...well Vonna came to my rescue and suggested I apply a Fray Stop and allow it to dry over night that way I could stitch it without worrying about it coming apart. Well it WORKED! You can tell if you look very closely...but that's art for you!
Hoping you are all enjoying your Holiday Season!

Today I finished Pear Tree by LHN. This design is from the 2006 Ornament Edition of Just Cross Stitch. I've changed some of the colors in it and really like the way it turned out. I'm still on the fence on what it will be once finished. I picked this design for the Little House Needlework's Ornament SAL group. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! I will update you with some more stockings hopefully by the end of the week!

Here is my latest finish. It's Bent Creek's Halloween Snapper. I am missing the little black spiders around the edges because the buttons I was told work work for it were way too big. So now I'm going to see if I can find something that will work. I was hoping I could get this made into a cube and out on disply before Halloween. I hope my quest for buttons is fruitful =) I just love all of the little costumes. Thank you Emily for the wonderful gift!

My oldest Daughter, Isabelle went to camp yesterday. She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in February and she is at a fun camp just for kids with Diabetes called Camp Stix. The camp isn't too far from where we live. They do all these special fun nights with costumes and everything. I had all of paperwork all together to go and then got to involved in packing her clothes, costumes, etc...that I got there and forgot her Doctor's Release form...UGH...Her doctor is at the camp with her so they told me I could just scan and email it...well then my darn scanner wouldn't work... So, I ran that up there this morning as well as her missing pillow. All the campers were at breakfast when I got there so I didn't actually get to see her...but I think her freshly made bed and pillow will alert her to my presence. We don't pick her up until Saturday...and I miss her already. She's having a great time though. I just hope she's responsible with her sunscreen. It's supposed to be hot and 90 all week and the camp is right on the river. I hope to get some pictures from the Camp of all of the fun they have.
So, needless to say, I haven't had a whole lot of time to stitch..by the time I land in bed at night the last thing I want to do is focus on anything. I started Shepherd's Bush Halloween Night. I have a about 30 stitches in it so far, so I'll post a photo when I get a little more done. I love the fabric. I'm stitching it on a 19ct provided by SB...so I'm not sure who it's from. It's not the model fabric by Weeks Dye Works as that fabric won't be available for another month....it is so soft and wonderful though...the softest I've every used. It's also 3 over 2 so they look like 10 ct stitches...I think it will be a lot of fun! .
I will also post some pictures of my garden soon...my sunflowers are about 4 ft tall right now and should be blossoming soon! Yay!!!!
Well I'm at my office...I better get back to work! LOL!
