Doesn’t the date 10.10.10 look somewhat funny?? It just hit me when I was dating this post what the day was. And did everyone wish John Lennon a Happy Birthday yesterday? I know some of you aren't old enough to remember him when he was alive, but I actually went to a Beatles concert when I was 15 years old.. They were great!!
Yesterday was the deadline to sign up for my Pay It Forward and the chosen ones are:
1. Viv – from Too Busy To Stitch
2. Debbie – from Debbie's Cross Stitch
3. Alyssa – from My Stitching Corner
Each of you – Viv, Debbie & Alyssa need to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your snail mail information so I will have your address to mail your gifts from me when they are completed. Also if you would please include a little about your likes and dislikes..(ex: if you don’t really care for snowmen, I wont send you something with a winter theme.) The little mice in my brain have already begun running around with ideas of items to send each of you.
And a stitching blog isn’t complete without something about my stitching !!
I finally finished the stitching on my Needlebook and just got back from Hancock to get the finishing felt. I plan to spend the day tomorrow finishing up about 4 projects.
I just had to start this little Pumpkin piece. I have had this for several years (actually have about 15) Stitcher’s Surprise kits that were a monthly thingy at my LNS. I was digging through my stash and snagged 3 of the kits out to stitch up. The fabric is I think like 10 count so it has stitched up really fast. see the pretty purple &
pumpkin & orange fabric I have to finish it into a double flange pillow.
And here is another finished piece I thought I would post. I stitched this cutie about 5 years ago and it has been packed up with all my other stitching. I have pulled it out, pressed it and it is now in the stack of things to get finished…
One last piece for today…
I think of all of the pieces, I like this one the most. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It is stitched on lime green linen and has 3 buttons: a bat, a frog and a Witches hat. The corners are stitched witches hats done in multi-colored metallic thread. I plan to finish this one a little different. (actually I am borrowing the idea from another blog I have visited recently). I’ll post an update when I have everything complete.
HERE IS THE GOOD PART
I didn’t realize until today that I already had a copy of The Cross Stitcher October 2010 magazine. It has a couple of Halloween charts, some for Thanksgiving, a beautiful Breast Cancer chart and a couple of Christmas charts. If you don’t have it and would like it, leave a comment on this post. I will draw a name next Sunday 10/17/10. If you comment you have one entry, if you are a follower of my blog you get a second entry. And of course, don't forget to click to enter Missy's 31 days of Halloween. Today being the 10th it is an even day.
Well, I guess that is all the news that is news. Until next time…
