Happy Halloween Eve

Well, tomorrow is Halloween. Time for all the little ghosts and goblins to come begging for candy. My kids have gotten to old for tick or treating which makes me happy and sad at the same time. I now get to stay home and give out candy to the very few kids who come to the door. The best part will be stitching while watching old scary movies on television. 

There are quite a few new designs on the way....take a look.

From Ink Circles
I just love Tracy's mandalas. The colors in "Snowdrops" are stunning. Wouldn't they make great pillows? I think so.

From Noteworthy Needle
What a fun little tote. Perfect for holding your "orts" or storing a small waxer.

Cornucopia Tiny Tote

Two new "berries" with a Christmas theme. Ho! Ho! Ho!

I can't decide which of these designs that I like best. I guess I will need to get them all.

Merry Christmas

Snow Birds

Jingle All the Way

From Summer House Stitche Workes
This morning it definitely felt like "Winter Cometh". I love the way she used the colors in that piece.  Yet, another project to add to my stash.

The "Christmas Mouse" is my favorite in the mouse in a house series (at least so far). Remember though, these designs are very limited.

Yay, the newest stocking is on the way. Of all the more current stockings, this one is by far my favorite. Look at the spotted deer. Isn't he so cute?

Richard's Stocking

From Little House Needleworks
The eighth design in the Early Americans series. Only one more and this series will be finished. "Bethlehem" is a wonderful design and it will definitely be going into my stash.

New "treats" coming soon!

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Now, it is Monday again (ughhhh). Time to start another work week. Here's to hoping it will go by quickly. I am off this Saturday and looking forward to spending a lot of time stitching. YAY! Didn't do much this past weekend due to work and a visit from my sister. Even though I didn't get a chance to stitch, I did enjoy visiting with her.

New "treats" are on the way and I don't mean candy (although, chocolate is good). Take a look at some of the new designs that will be arriving soon and let the inspiration strike!

From Country Cottage Needleworks
Great choice of fabric for this very festive design.

Wonderful Time of Year

From Waxing Moon Designs
This is absolutely hilarious and so true. 

Christmas Pounds

From The Vickery Collection
A beautiful collection of ornaments. I assume metallic fibers were used on these. Hard to tell in this picture but I bet they are shiny.
Holiday Sparkle

From Thistles
A very woodsy Santa.

Father Winter

From Stoney Creek
Five new designs. My favorite is "Comfort & Joy". I just love the cardinal. He is simply beautiful.

Christmas Ornaments VI

From Annalee Waite Designs
The "Bees & Trees" design comes with the heart button and the "Two Ghosts One Spider" is too cute. I'd like to do it for next Halloween.

I think this design would also make a cute ornament or even a small pillow.
