TGIF

Happy Friday!!!!

Lots of progress made on Halloween Rules this week


I am so happy to have the BBD Casting a Spell and the box,
now to get the linen and maybe a couple GA threads




I need some help here..


I am torn between two designs, which one would you like to see me start stitching next??

I am kinda leaning toward the Winter Wonderland, since that season is coming up really, really fast
But then again I love the PS and have that kitted up longer


I captured this little sweetie, it's not as dark as it appears in the background






I think I may have spooked him, the hummingbird would not feed, when I had the camera in hand

Thank you for all the comments and e-mails,


they are much appreciated and so fun to read


Have a great weekend!!!!

"Halloween Rules" looks fab and I can't wait to see "Casting a Spell". I vote for "Winter Wonderland", but you'll know which best suits you when it's time to begin.

Great progress on Halloween Rules! I love how vivid the colors are.

I say just go with your gut on which one to stitch next.

Hummingbirds are always so hard to capture on "film". Great job!!!

Love your Halloween Rules. The box for Casting a Spell is so cool! As for which project to stitch next, I think I'm leaning toward the PS chart myself. :D

Great work on Halloween rules!
Love the box for the BBD - I have to get one of those!!
As for your next piece, they are both great!!

I am a bit partial to Winter Wonderland, as I have that in my own stash. I was drawn to it as it reminded me of our home "Stones Throw" and all the wild life that passes through the field and orchard out back. Except the geese would be turkeys in our yard. Hahaha.

Keep on stitching. P.J.

Shelleen said...

Great progress on Halloween Rules.I really like Casting a Spell, haven't seen that before. I would stitch Winter Wonderland next, very pretty.

Parsley said...

Love the WIPs. I stitched only a portion of the Halloween Rules. So fun!

mdgtjulie said...

Okay, just let me say WOW. Great pics of the hummingbird. I love hummers. They're so pretty. Congrats on your progress too. If you go into design and click add a gadget, you can add a poll to let your readers decide your next project. I do that all the time as I have a terrible time making decisions.

Linda said...

Love the Halloween Rules...wonderful! I can't be much help of which to start first...I like them both!

Teresa said...

A tip on the Casting a spell(BBD) I picked up a skein of espresso bean and now need another....decided to pull out the 3371....can't tell the difference. I'd save the money for the 2 skeins you will need and just use 3371....I am for the final pieces.

Doris said...

I like how Halloween Rules is becoming...and the box look great. like it!.

Pumpkin said...
