Lots to show

I have been stitching. This will be a picture heavy post. First up, I am taking part in the Great Pumpkin Challenge 2010 that Becky started. I have stitched three this week and while I still need to finish them, probably as ornaments, I thought I would go ahead and post the pictures.

Blessed Be complimentary design by Plum Pudding Needleart
an unknown Halloween freebie

Pumpkin Kiss
Cricket Collection free pattern

This is the backing material I got at the fabric store yesterday. I love the skeletons. They are so cute.

I finished the windows on the house and started the moon last week at the Stitching Night at InStitches. I'll probably work on this one some more during the week. I want to get the moon done this week.

Finally, I pulled out a WIP/UFO. This was the 2008 Chatelaine Mystery. I never finished it and I don't really know why. I am on the last part. This is the bottom border. I already have the top and right borders done. I just need to finish the bottom here and the left side. I don't think it will take too much longer. I did the four medallions closest to the end this weekend, so a few more weekends and I should have it done. My goal is to have it completed by the end of October.

Lastly, thanks everyone for the well wishes. I got over the virus very quickly.

Thanks for stopping by.
