Some Stitchy News

I'd like to give a 'shout out' to my friend Margaret. Thank you so much, dear friend, for blessing me with the One Lovely Blog Award. Margaret is a truly talented stitcher of reproduction samplers with a blazing fast needle. She inspires me with her lovely 'fini' posts on her blog, Days of a Sampler Lover.

A special thank you is being sent to Deb, the finisher extraordinaire, for providing the names of the BOAF Halloween designs. 

I have a bit of stitching news to share with you today. I picked up this piece from my framer the other day.

I've made some progress on Witches Hollow - The Primitve Needle. I made a counting error and decided to be creative in finding a solution that didn't involve unstitching. So my piece is not true to the chart...

Come join in the fun! La Brodeuse Brode is having a Christmas SAL. It starts November 1st. The Thread Basket and  Jardin Prive have organized a 4 week SAL, with a new part being released each week. Check out the blog for photos of the stocking designs and more detailed information.

I'll leave you today with a snap of my sweet Owen.
