I probably would have gotten further tonight but as we all know it is Halloween and my two youngest ones were ready to hit the road as soon as it started getting dark. Mac and Allie made out like bandits this year! Mac went as an alien. He loved his mask...it glowed in the dark. Allie went as Chucky. That mess of curls is all natural! I am terribly jealous of her hair. Overall, they had a great time so that is all that matters.

I can't believe that tomorrow is Halloween! We will be taking Mac and Allie out trick or treating in a few close by areas. Where we live we don't get any trick or treaters so I don't have to worry about buying lots of candy to give out. Which is probably good because chocolate doesn't last long around here anyways. :)
Have a good evening!

I am planning on finishing this one into a candy box for my mom. While we were in Omaha I brought my Bone Appetit candy box and Mom fell in love with it. So I told her to pick out an ornament from my JCS issues and I would make it for her. Now, I have to go in search of the perfect fabric for it!

I am really excited about how close this one is to being finished. I have to set her aside for a bit to work on a RR. I chose to stitch a baby chick from Ursula Micheals. It shouldn't take me too long to finish and then I can get back to WF.
Have a good evening!

I want to thank every one who left comments on my grandma's death. Your words were truly appreciated and meant a lot too me. Thank you!
Have a great day!

I will be heading to Omaha Nebraska in the next day or two so I probably won't be posting much in the next few days. I am not sure how long I will be up there, mainly depends on how much time Mike can take off from his job. I will do my best to get caught up on every one's blogs as soon as I can.

However, I do have a small finish to show you tonight. I made this little bag for a friend's daughter. She is all grown up now....she is 6! I stitched Sew in Love from Precious Moments. I know a lot of people don't care for PM but they are just so sweet and simple!

I have to confess my inspiration to finish this one comes directly from Renee. As we were chatting about cross stitching I mentioned my next TW would be Egyptian Sampler but I would have to find the pattern as I didn't have it. That is when she told me she had that very pattern. She asked if I would like to borrow it and my answer was "YES YES!!" I can't wait to get that one started! Renee, you are the bestest friend a girl could have :)
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

Today I worked on Woodland Faerie some more. That hole is getting smaller but there is still the backstitching left! I am thinking about focusing on this one until I finish it. In the grand scale of things I really don't have all that much left but what I have done has taken me almost 2 years.

I hope everyone is having a good night!

I bet you are wondering what is in the white bag :) Well, it is one of Carol's fabulous fob's AND Dinky Dye Scissors. The scissors are green and purple. Apparently, Carol's does her homework as those are my 2 favorite colors:)
Isn't it too cute?! Thank you so much, Carol!!
I am behind in my blog reading again. I promise to get caught with every one's stitching as soon as I can!!
Svenja has better pictures. I am no photographer!

Tonight looks like it should be a pretty quiet evening around here so I am going to work on Woodland Fairie. If all goes well, I should have some visible progress since I will be working on the filling in the huge hole.
I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments on the needleroll. I admit that I have been considering this finished piece for the Cross Stitch Lottery. I really like how it turned out and if I won the lottery I would enjoy the needleroll. So now the debate goes on...do I keep it for myself or do I use it for the Lottery? Good thing I have time to decide! LOL...look how many times I changed my mind on the bag!

I am planning on finishing this one into an ornament. I already have the fabric picked out. It has holly berries and leaves all over it. I am not sure when I am going to actually get around to finishing it. I have so many things I want to work on and finish but I need more hands!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend:)

I could easily become addicted to making bourses. I don't know which is more fun the actual stitching or the picking out of materials to finish it!
Have a great weekend!:)

Today's SBQ was suggested by Jennifer and is:
What are your favorite online stitching supply sources?
This week's question doesn't really apply to me since I generally get my stitching material from my LNS. I have used Down Sunshine Lane before and I highly recommend them to anyone! My order was processed and in my hands inside of a week.
