Trying to get my mojo back

I've been a little lax in my stitching lately, but last night was Stitch Night at In Stitches and I hope it's jump started me again. I worked on Thirteen Colonies and finished three of the stars in the border.
At least now I am assured that I have enough fabric and will not have to start again.

In Stitches is also having a sale. 20% off all Halloween patterns, fabric, fibers, etc. Well, you know me, I can't pass up a sale! There were two models up front and I fell in love with them. The first is Val's Stuff Teenie Weenie Halloweenie. I got the fabric and buttons to go along with it.
Now, the next one I would never have bought if I were to go by the picture on the pattern, but one of the customers had stitched it over one on I think 36 count and it looks great! It is A Mon Ami Pierre's Greetings Halloween. The fabric I purchased is not what they call for; it is 32 count. I plan to do it over one also.
I also picked up this fabric for Sleepy Hollow by Cross-Eyed Cricket (which I bought years ago). Once again, not what is called for, but the model in the shop was stitched on this and it looks fabulous.
If you want to see the models for all of these go here to the In Stitches blog. They have several others pictured also.
Okay, not on to laundry and some stitching!
