Another finish... last one for awhile

Hi! I hope everyone is having beautiful weather like here in the upper midwest, U.S. It's almost too nice to be sitting at the puter, but I haven't posted for a week and wanted to catch on up somethings. First of all let me present my Halloween Holiday . This was stitched on 28ct Cognac- Cashel Linen with WDW"s 2/2. I want to order or make a tuckable for it.

Yipeee! I finally received the fabby for my Cercles Des Cirque, I can't wait to go to my LNS to pick out the floss. She also has some charts and threads, I have needed for awhile. The pic is kinda of blurry of the fabby, but's its beautiful. Sugared Ginger from Lakeside.

I finally started my Shepards Bush kit, "Baby, Bug, Ball". It's coming along quick. I worked on it just 2 nites a few hours. At first I thought the colors were kinda of drab, but I guess they look better now all put together. The chart is rather hard to read, I had to study it for awhile. I never did a Shepards bush that I recall, so it is rather different for me.It will probably sit on the back burner, when I get my floss to start CDC, that will be Wed. hopefully becuz she is closed on Mon. & Tues. and tomorrow are graduation parties.

I would like to Thank Shell for the nice ATC's and beautiful Six Strand Sweets she sent me from England. I sent her back a little stitchy package, which she has already received. I received my magazines from ebay and just love all the projects, (like I need more) I have my Caramel Apples now to start. I was strolling through some older magazines and found Painted Ponies in the Cross Stitcher June 1995 that I will kit up. Before I bore you guys to death, I came across this hint I would like to share, After threading your needle, push it through a fabric-softner sheet a few times. the needle will glide through the fabric without friction and the thread will remain untangled. To help reduce my stash, stay tuned for a stitchy give-away soon. As you can see, I havent figured out my piccy blog placement yet, but I guess as long as I get them uploaded it doesnt matter where they are placed. Happy Stitchy!! Thanks for those who left a commment on the last post about this post. I had to edit and allow comments, I must have hit the post options.
