It's all spooky

Happy Fall ya all,

I have two fast finishes I finished today/tonight. I believe both kits were from the round robin class at St. Charles, Missouri, Celebrations of Needlework last year or possibly the year before.

The first up is a Rosewood Manor design kit " Crows Feet Quilt Block"

I love it, when everything is kitted up

Next is...
Just Another Button Company, pumpkin pincushion kit, again everything to finish it

Is anyone going this year to Celebrations in St. Charles?
I will be there again this year

Barb commented on my last post about my Halloween stuff, well here you go,

That's just some of it, lol

Good night!!

Boo! Jack o Lantern Watch

Not exactly boo! I exchanged the words for autumn

Time For Halloween by With Thy Needle & Thread
Stitched on 40ct w/ GA threads
This one I used matching chenille for the necklace.

To find out where and what to purchase, look in my previous post.

The cat design is Oct 31 - Black Cat Watch 
I love these, they are super quick to make and perfect for gift giving.
You can use your own design for personal pleasure, as well
Now to stitch the witch, then the saltbox

Happy stitching!!!!
P.S. Thanks for the wonderful comments and visits

Time for Halloween

Happy Monday,

I finished another stitch and put it together as a necklace

Time for Halloween by With Thy Needle & Thread

You can buy the Jim Holtz idea-ology pocket watches at Michaels, hobby lobby or your local needle shop, not sure where else. I didn't buy a chain, I used cheap black ribbon, I think it looks better. You can use any color, you can even change out the color to suit your blouse, ect. to match. Also make them any length you want. The designer has other ones to stitch too, so you could change out the stitchy design and change the ribbon to the season
Now off to make the other two, what fun and it doesnt take long at all, it's a fast happy dance

Happy stitching!!
Happy fall!!

Progress update 2X

Happy Thursday!!

I didn't get around to posting a progress post on Away We Ride last week, so here it is...

My goal was to get the border finished, yay me

Now.. this is this Thursday's update, I love the witches house

Maybe I'll have a finish by next Thursday, we'll see

Anna had a birthday yesterday. I mailed off a package to her, of course, the good friend she is

I bought her a Lizzie Kate Christmas ornament chart with the beads and the linen, I also made this for her

From the JCS Christmas Ornaments 2010 magazine. The design is by Plum Street Samplers

We had a awesome Labor Day weekend. We spent Sunday on the boat on Lake Delevan in Wisconsin.

Pictured is Dan with our daughter, Heather and three of four grandkids, they had a blast, something we have to find time to do lots more of. A little cruising, swimming, picnic, fishing, sunning, it was great, oh yeah, feeding the ducks our sandwich bread

Have a great upcoming stitchy weekend :)
