Today is reveal day for the monthly challenge at Needlecraft Haven.
I've seen this little freebie from Primitive Hare stitched a few times this month. All have been finished so differently and beautifully. You can see the ones in our challenge in this months album, not quite as many as usual, but some are added later if time does not permit a finish before reveal day.
I saw this spiders web in the local supermarket, complete with rubber glow in the dark spider with sucker on the back. The perfect thing to fix on my little ornament which is stitched over one on a grab bag piece of purple 28ct evenweave and finished with orange ric rac braid.
It's stuck on my kitchen window, but unfortunately it wouldn't photograph nicely, so i took it down to get a better pic.
I was lucky enough to win the draw on Christine's blog for a patchwork pear she had made using a pattern in Mollie Makes magazine and this week it arrived. It is wonderful and so beautifully made. Thank you so much Christine for the lovely parcel, i adore the crochet flowers that you included together with the apples and pear thread.
Another envelope had me all excited when it arrived too.
My son had ordered something for me.
The JCS 2011 Ornament Edition arrived from the US. Who would have thought he listens to places i visit to purchase stash sometimes and he must have overheard me telling DH that i really wanted to obtain a copy for my collection this year.
There are a lot of lovelies this time, and i think that next years ornament a month collection will all be coming from this one edition. It is looking well browsed and it's been here less than a week already!
Wishing you all a Happy Halloween by sharing a smile from my two girls.
Isabelle was happy to oblige with a nice smiley dimple faced grin this week when she came for a visit with her mum.
She is definately doing a good impersonation for halloween of Count Dracula when she grabs your finger and tries to bite down on it with her new two top teeth, that makes a set of four now.
