Getting ready for Halloween..


It's not too far off is it? I just received the new issue of Just Crosstitch and it is wonderful. It is a Halloween preview and filled with great things to stitch for Halloween. Some of the ornaments are irresistable. I also couldn't resist some of these little Halloween findings to decorate my Halloween stitching with. The pumpkin trim is the cutest. The store only had one roll of it and I wish I could have gotten another couple rolls. I can't wait to use it.
I started the cutest design that was a freebie from Plum Street Samplers called Coffin Buzz. The saying fits me perfectly because anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE coffee. I am anxious to stitch it and get it framed as fast as I can.



I finished a giftie for a friend whose favorite color is purple. I hope she likes it, her name is on the other side so I can't show that to everyone but here is the front. The ring is very purple though in the picture it looks a bit dark blue.

My, you've been busy. I'm not much of a coffee person, but that sampler you've picked out is wonderful!

I'm still waiting to get my JCS Halloween issue!! I love the saying on that freebie. That would be a good one for my father. I'm not a coffee drinker but my father needs an IV of coffee hooked to him! LOL Nice job on the purple ring! It's beautiful!

Sharon! I know how busy you've been and you still manage to stitch more than me. I'm going to start Coffin Buzz this weekend. I think I'm going to dye fabric for it tomorrow or maybe I'll stitch it first and dye when it's done.
