September WIPocalpyse

Well, I had one finish , Lizzie Kate's Very Scary, that you can see in an earlier post and I made some headway on The Astronomer as you can see in my previous post. The only other thing I did was I started and finished The Tribal Penguin by White Willow Stitching.

It is stitched on lavender 18 ct. aida. I haven't stitched on aida in forever. I really prefer linen or evenweave, but I have some in my stash and I wanted to get it stitched as soon as possible.

Now, this is a traveling pattern so it is now time to pass it on. If you would like a chance to stitch him, leave a comment on this post and I will draw a name this Wednesday October 3rd.

Thanks for stopping by!

TUSAL & Some Stitching

Boy! That new moon snuck up on me this month. I totally missed it yesterday. So here is my day late orts.

Now onto the stitching part of the post. I worked on The Astronomer and almost have page 8 finished. I lack about 20 to 30 stitches.

 I got sidetracked though when part 3 of Very Scary came in and I had to finish that. Then I was picked to be the next recipient of the Tribal Penguin traveling pattern. It came on Saturday so I picked some fabric, got the floss, and started it. I want to finish it quickly so I can pass it on.

The drama in our household this past week was our cat Gray has been diagnosed with diabetes. So it was off to the vets to learn how to give him insulin shots.  We had to change his food and we have to wait until he eats before we can give him his shot.  He is not a happy kitty.

That's all that's going on here. Thanks for stopping by.

Crazy & a Happy Dance

This past week, starting Labor Day weekend, my LNS was having it's 17th anniversary sale. 17% off everything. So I went stash crazy. First up is what I bought last Saturday.

Just Nan's Spider Moon and the fabric is for it; Rosewood Manor Halloween Quilt Sampler; PSP Garden of Eerie; Mirabilia September Sapphire Fairy

Then Stitch Night resumed the first Wednesday of September and I added a couple more.
Mirabilia August Peridot Fairy; AAN Pomo

That wasn't bad enough except a few weeks ago I ordered these for Stitching Bits & Bobs
The first 4 in the series of Mirabilia's 12 Days of Christmas

I also ordered some fabulous fabric from PTP
So as you can see, I went quite insane LOL! I need to join Stashaholics Anonymous.

Now on to the HAPPY DANCE! I finished Very Scary last night. Please excuse the picture. I really need to press the piece but I wanted to get it posted this morning. I think I want to make it into a bell pull, but I need to practice my sewing skills some more before I attempt that.
I did make one change in part three. I used the Honeysuckle for the moon instead of the Guacamole. I wanted it to be more yellow.
So there you have my very long post stitch fans.
Thanks for stopping by.
