Halloween Greetings

Happy Halloween Dear Friends,
I love Halloween with all the trimmings. 
Ghosts, goblins, jack-o-lanterns, everything Halloween-y.
I have been stitching quite a few Halloween designs and picked
them up from the framers today. 
 Sweeping Cobwebs by Prairie Schooler
 The frame for Sweeping Cobwebs is just gorgeous. 
It was hard to get a good picture on this dreary day before Halloween.
Trix or Treat by Blackbird Designs
 Her Wicked Best by Primitive Needle.
The fabric really is a very Halloween-y orange.
I haven't shipped this one off to the framer yet and can't wait to do so.
I also picked up a piece unrelated to Halloween.
I started this piece in St. Louis in September and it stitched up very quickly.
 Home Sweet Home by Pineberry Lane

Thank you for stopping by and spending a part of your day with me. 
I love to hear from you and share the love of stitching.
I hope Halloween brings you lots of sugar filled children,
cute costumes and a few good frights.

Keep on stitchin,

October Already?

Greetings Friends,
It is hard to believe October is already here. 
Time is flying and I've been in a Halloween mood for stitching.
This weekend brings our city's annual Oktoberfest.  I'm looking forward to the unlimited supply of fried food and catching up with friends I only see visiting the Oktoberfest.
October also  brings one of my favorite holidays.  HALLOWEEN!
I finished BBD's Trix or Treat.  This was a fast, fun stitch.  I think I'll have this one framed.

I also finished Home Sweet Home...

I finally got my Halloween decorations out on the mantle. 
 I have a few more stitched pieces to finish for Halloween.
Hopefully I can find my finishing mojo this weekend.
I also found the energy to put away my 4th of July pieces and changed to Fall.
This Fall I participated in a couple of exchanges.
My friend Karen and I did our annual Halloween exchange.
Karen and I did a stitched (but not finished) exchange.
She stitched Holy Sheet over 1!  She also spoiled me with lots of Hallloween goodies.
(I giggle everytime I look at the piece Karen stitched for me....Holy Sheet!  LOL!)
Here are the goodies I sent Karen.
The Halloween bag is from Victoria Motto Sampler
It is full of Nancy's hand-dyed trim and floss.
If you haven't been by Nancy's blog check her out. 
Her trim is awesome and her prices are very reasonable.
I also participated in The Friends Stitching Through the Seasons exchange. 
You can see the goodies Edgar sent me in my previous post.
Here is what I sent my partner Michelle.
I hope everyone is having a great Autumn season. 
Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments.
