A wonderful way to end a day.

I've been down in the dumps again and a wonderful blogging friend with a heart of gold noticed this, so guess what was sitting in my mailbox for me.

Inside was a necklace for my DD and cute Halloween colouring book for my DS. Candy goody bags for everyone in my family. Warm fuzzy socks for me if I can keep them away from a certain sock thief. And these 2 Halloween stitchy gifts.

I love both the pumpkin scissor fob and the wonderfully stitched little Halloween ornament. It brought tears to my eyes, and I just want to let everyone in blogland know what a special and caring person Cat is, she is also very talented check out her blog here Sorry about the bad pictures but it is a grey and overcast day here.

I'm a bit computer challenged how do, I do a link like the above but instead of the web site it would just say the name Cat, did that make sense.

My Rant For The Day

If you use something put it back where you found it, is that so hard to remember. I guess it is because I spent 2 hours looking for my pinking shears to finish my ornament with. Do you think I could find them anywhere, no. You don't think they could have grown legs and walked away, do you. I doubt some how I have a feeling a certain 16 year old borrowed them for what ever purpose, guess I'll find out after school. So ignore the uneven large green edge, mentally picture a nice even pinked edge which if I could have found my scissors it would have been.

This reindeer was stitched on 18 count white Aida and it is from the simply red ornament collection from Imaginating.

Sorry its not exactly finished. Will share another pic when I find my scissors.

A soon to be new start

I've drooled over Thine Is The Trick And The Treat by Prairie Moon long enough so I caved and bought it. I'm going to be starting this in the next couple of weeks. I'm going to be stitching along with Denise over at if anybody wants to join us the more the merrier.

I was planning on posting an updated pic of my afghan project but it will have to wait seems my camera walked away with a teenage daughter. So when she returns Sunday I'll be posting a few new pictures.

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend.

An Afghan Update

I've been working on my exchange piece so your going have to wait to see pics of that. I've also managed to get Winnie The Pooh finished, now to decide on if Tigger will bounce forward next or shy little Piglet will make an appearance first.

Oh a Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian neighbours

My lastest craft project

LOL, I'm so crafty I make people.

I wasn't going to share this with everyone, I've lost too many babies to get my hopes up. So far things look good, keeping fingers and toes crossed this little one make an appearance at the beginning of March. Going to go sneak in a few stitches on my exchange piece. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

An Afghan Update and A Fresh New Start

I wasn't sure if I should back stitch Eeyore or let him remain the blue lump. Winnie demand to be stitched so I might go back to Eeyore or maybe wait until I've completed the whole afghan. So my question of the day is to you guys back stitch as you go or wait until the end and do it all at once.

I started a new start this morning but I can't share because it's for an exchange, all I can say its its fun so far and I will be stitching another one for myself.
