Ghost and Goblins

Hello Friends,

It is hard to believe that I am over a month into my school year.  Things are settling down and I am finding some time to stitch.  My stitching A.D.D. has kicked in and I'm jumping from  piece to piece.  I've mainly been working on bigger pieces but did stitch a couple of exchanges that I'll be able to show you soon.

I finished Bent Creek's Halloween Branch in record time.  Here it is framed and ready for the haunting season.  I am sorry the pictures aren't great but the frame is perfectly spooky.  The lines in the frame have a slight orange tint to them.  I can't wait to start decorating for Halloween.



My Friends Stitching Through the Seasons exchange arrived today.
Edgar always goes above and beyond to make it special for me.
He stitched Bent Creek's Autumn Row and Faye, the carolina stitcher finished it.

 Thank you Edgar!  I love this piece and it will always have a special place in my Fall displays.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments.  I cherish everyone and jump every time I hear my phone notify me I have a new email :-)

Keep on stitchin'
Nan
