Happy Halloween

This is the week that all the little ghosts, goblins, and assorted other characters come begging for candy. Oh, what fun! I do remember enjoying Halloween as I child. Now, I like watching my children enjoy it. They are really excited about Thursday night. I would be more so if it wasn't on a school night. Oh well, next year it will be on a Friday night (yeah!!!).

Here are some new designs heading this way. There is even a new series (starting in Dec.) from Little House Needleworks. Take a look below.

The whole 12 part series is stitched on 28ct. Clay Cashel linen with DMC floss.
There are no over-dyed threads, buttons or embellishments. Each design has a stitch count of 46w x 67h. They are perfect to stitch alone and Diane has given 4 different ways to finish them.
This looks to be a really cute and simple new series!
Have a great week and a safe Halloween!

October is almost over!

Wow, this month has gone by way too quickly. I can't believe that it's almost Halloween. I still need to get a Halloween costume for my son. With only 10 days until the "candy fest", I guess I'd better hop to it. I can't imagine what we'll find. If worse comes to worse, I'll cut two holes in a sheet and he can be a ghost (he did not find that amusing). This makes me wonder how much time I'll give myself to get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Probably not enough.

Not only are the holidays coming, but new cross stitch designs are also on the way. Take a look to see what will be arriving at the shop very soon.
