Here is OOPS finished into a Trick or Treat bag for Mac. I really like how it turned out and so does Mac. He thinks it is the cool. I guess that is a pretty good compliment coming from a 9 year old boy. The finished size is 14x15 inches so it should work perfectly for holding his Halloween loot.
This morning I ran into my LNS to pick up some things and while I was there I showed my bag to another stitcher. When I mentioned that it was for my son she commented that she would never let her children use it. I have always made things for kids and let them use them. Am I strange that I give my kids cross stitched gifts that they can use? I figure that the lady was referring to the fact it might get ruined by the kids. Although, it would be sad to see a gift ruined but at the same time it is being used and to me when it is used that is the highest form of compliment.
It doesn't look like we will be doing much this weekend. It has been raining for the last 3 days and no signs of stopping either. Today I got my November Topaz Fairy from Mirabilia so I might just start on her. I am going to stitch her on some 32 count white opalescent fabric. I still need to purchase the beads and kreiniks but at least I can start at least! :)
