Halloween stitching!

What a busy last couple of weeks I have had! I was in Lancaster, PA for the Stitching Jubillee for the 14th-16th (more in a later blog entry)and took a class by Catherine Jordan, the Tree of Life Journal. It is a small crewel embroidery piece and I hope it will be finished this year! If you check her site, the little postage stamp-sized reversible necklaces have a similar Tree of Life piece. The journal is more the size of a note card. I got the Cats & Dogs kit while I was there.

I also finished up a Quaker Halloween SAL from the San-Man Originals board available to members only (but, it's free to join!). Sandy is a very generous person and you can find a few of her freebies on CyberStitchers, including another Quaker piece. I really love the Witchy Boot!

I spent most of last week getting more organized in my hobby room (what with all the new stash!) and stitching my monthly biscornu.

This time it's the Owlscornu by Barbara Ana....with a little black cat button on top, and a bat on the back! If you visit her site, she has several freebies of similar brightness!

You can see the little spider peeking out from under the edge!

I am back to stitching on my 10th block of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow and will have more about the stitching festival soon!
