~Halloween Giveaway~

I decided i'd post my giveaway now and give you all til the 20th to enter. That should give me enough time to get it mailed out and for the winners to receive it by Halloween.

This giveaway i'm giving away not one but two different packages. Here will be 1st prize...

And here is the second prize...

Of course in each one a cute stitchy item will be placed. That will have to be a surprise. And i'll most likely find some more cute things between then and now that might get thrown in.

Now how to enter:

1 entry - Post a comment on this post
2 entries - Post about my giveaway on your blog (don't forget to tell me when you do)
3 entries - tell me your favorite Halloween costume growing up and why it was your favorite

Good Luck to you all!

Got the camera back!

As you can see I got the camera back. Yay! I've felt lost without it. I've taken pics of some of the things I've done but still can't share everything. I am heading to the post office tomorrow. I have a lot of things to be shipped out. As soon as I know people have received I will share with you. So now onto what I can share.

As I mentioned in an earlier post I picked up a knitting loom. I'm having fun with it so far. I guess I messed up on my first attempt. It got way too tight and I couldn't move to the next row. So i'm trying again and attempting not to pull it so tight. So far so good.

I am a member of the Sanman message board and they are doing a really cute sock swap. I received mine the other day aren't they just adorable? My swap partner also sent me a couple cute patterns that she was allowed to share with me. (The ones to my swap partner are going out tomorrow. I haven't had a chance to get to the post office in time.)

And lastly here is my TUSAL jar. It would have been on time but the camera on my phone doesn't take the greatest of pictures and I can never keep a signal long enough in this house to email it to myself.

Well I think thats enough for me tonight. I'm off to stitch something special. Tomorrow i'll be posting my Halloween giveaway.

Sad but new stash!

I'm so upset. I went into that new (to me, I've been there a couple times now) store that carried a bunch of stitching things and she has decided to get rid of it all! She has stopped carrying all her stitching supplies. *cries* But on the happier side everything she had left was 40% off! So I picked up a few patterns.

But now i'm going to have to go to the meanie lady's store or just order my stuff online. *cries some more* I did get some other stash while I was in town yesterday too but i'm not going to show it yet. Some is for some swaps and i'm going to have a Halloween giveaway so keep an eye out.

On other news after I posted yesterday I noticed that Nemo wasn't actually finished! I missed backstitching on his front fin. So here he is finished I swear. LOL

Here is the blackwork kitty. I think he turned out awesome. I didn't do everything the chart had on it but I love how it looks like it is right now. I think I need to go back through and fill in the outside edges a little bit more though.

And after the kitty was finished I made this one.

Yesterday after I got home I started stitching some Halloween things finally! Yay me for finally doing something 'in season'.

Happy Stitching!

Nemo & Christmas cat

I tried to work on my Halloween project. I got my fabric all counted out and set up in my frame... and then I just sat there staring at it. I couldn't seem to start it so I set it aside and finished Nemo.

I changed some of the colors for the backstitching because what the kit said just didn't show up enough. So after finishing Nemo I still couldn't seem to start my Halloween stitch so I decided i'd try another Christmas ornie and then try the Halloween one again. I have seen some really pretty blackwork designs and found a cat to try out. To make him Christmas i'm making him red/green instead of black. And I think i'll put a bow around his neck with ribbon or put a little bell. Not sure yet which. But here is what I've gotten done so far. I'm still trying to decide if i'll have enough or too much green vs red.

Happy Stitching!
