Birthday and Witches

Friday I received this cute, cute, CUTE pinkeep from AmySC. Isn't it sweet?! I love it and have it displayed with my ever growing sheep collection ;) Thank you Amy for your sweet gift and your sweet sentiments you wrote on your blog! I appreciate it very much and I cherish your friendship!



The majority of this weekend has been about finishing up my Witching for Stitching Halloween RR I'm a little sick of the whole thing...looking at it trying to make sure that everything is ok....but here it is - modeled by my lovely daughter Katie:



Here's a snap of it in the house...that's why its so dark:

The majority of the design comes from Blackbird Designs the only thing that isn't BBD is the tree/cat/pumpkin deal on the left hand side...that is Plum Pudding Needleart and is from Salem Inn. I think it turned out pretty ok. I love the verse, I love that crow and I think it will be fine.

What do you think?

Well that's it for me today....I'm on to have our evening walk...and then kit up my next project which is for another exchange.....I know.....over extending myself once again.....

Until next time, stitch and smile!

    Your stitching box for Leena is lovely too. Wherever do you find the time for all your finishes?
