More Halloween in July




Hello everyone .... I have been stitching on this new Halloween Ornament. This one is stitched on 18th Century Rook linen with DMC and specialty threads. The chart had the purple back stitch in the eyes as just DMC #333. I added Purple Blending filament to it. I think it gave it some sparkle. If you know me.. The more sparkle the better. I am chugging along to get these finished for my Halloween Tree. I am thinking the tree I got at Home Goods Store may be a little small. I may have to look for a bigger black tree for these ornaments... I also have the charts for the Scary Acorns which is also by Cricket Collection Designs. They may fit my black glitter tree better.

Josh did his Workshop at Lowe's yesterday. Here is his picture:


This is Raeanne , Chip, Joshua, and Zoe. He made an UFO with a blinking light. He goes to Lowe's twice a month and to Home Depot once a month. He is all the time building something.

Well.. I have a fever again. Started getting sick last Sunday. got better as the week went on. Then again this morning I awoke with headache. Now I have a swore throat and ear ache again. Checked for fever. Temp was 100.8.. That is also the outside temperature. LOL I think it is hotter than 100 outside and hubby is crazy! He is outside riding that lawn mower around. With this Hot Temp, I don't care if the grass ever gets cut.

I also let all the flowers in my pots die. Murder by no water! I have a green thumb, but not in this heat. Nothing could save them. Sun burnt flowers... They turned brown and the leaves looked burnt. I will give them a good burial in October when it cools some. Or just maybe by then... they will fit into my death Halloween scene. LOL Till Later.....

Sorry to hear you're under the weather, especially when it is so hot outside.

I love your Mr. Skully, he is going to be wonderful, I collect skeletons, so I might have to stitch this one up to add to my collection......

Take care!

Hey girlfriend!
Love all your Halloween stitchies. Josh and family look like they had a good time. Hope you're feeling better. No fun being sick when it's so hot outside. Hard to tell if you have a fever or are just hot!

I have some suffering plants too. Too hot to keep up with some of them. Hope you are feeling better soon. Your stitching is beautiful.

That is SO adorable! I love that Rook linen - perfect for Halloween ornies. Oh, my yard is a crunchy dead mess, so don't feel bad. It's been brutal here in VA. Feel better soon!
