Good morning from stormy North Carolina! In order to make up for last month's lack of progress, I have two finishes to share today. First up is 'Black'd Skie' by The Primitive Needle. Here's where I was at the start of 2012:
I also finished up an ornament designed by Blackberry Lane that was in last year's JCS Halloween issue. I actually did all the over one stitching last year. But by the time I picked out the fabric for finishing, Halloween was long over so I put the piece aside til this year.
In other news, I put my package in the mail for DixieSampler's Haunted Halloween exchange earlier this week. As soon as I hear that the recipient has gotten it, I'll post photos. Meanwhile, I am looking forward to receiving a package myself. I also have one more Halloween ornament that needs to have the trim attached and then it will be finished. After that, I'm not sure what I'll stitch on. I really need to get back to my BAP challenge piece, but it's so tempting to start a new Halloween design instead! Only time will tell which urge will win out! And, oh dear, I guess I need to consider what WIPocalypse-worthy item I'll pick up next as well. There are no more outstanding Halloween pieces, unless you count pieces selected but not one single stitched yet placed.
I am also working to get things ready for entry into the NC State Fair displays. I'll be dropping some stitching and scrapbooking off towards the end of this coming week... but I don't have all my scrapbooking pages finished! They'll get done. Eventually. : ) I am also planning to decorate the house for Halloween this weekend. The husband thinks I should wait til it is actually October. I disagree. I will post decor photos later this week.
Til next time, stay dry and stay creative!
