This is my Cat from Cricket Collection! I also have the instructions to put it together plus a 2nd set of Flat Fold instructions. We will see how this turns out... LOL I will start on it tomorrow. Yes... I know that is Halloween! But, I want to get it finished to put in the tub with all the other Halloween I put up today. I know I little early, but I thought, Hey, I will be at mom's tomorrow and not here looking at them. I put some of my Just Autumn things out. I still have to finish Boo Man too. Here he is all ready to get stuffed. By the way, I have to make his pants so, he is Naked right now. LOL
He is a punch needle design from With Thy Needle & Thread - Brenda Gervais. He sure is grinning pretty to have no pants!! LOL I do have another finish. It is an ornament. My computer crashed earlier today and I had a hard time rebooting. I will try and get pictures of my other finishes ! Till Later.......

I like him in other horror movies too, but HOHH is my fav. I need to get Raeanne (dd) to bring over the dvd to watch it again. Did ya'll know Mr Price also appeared on Brady Bunch? yep... he did... Hawaii Week for the Brady's. He played professor Whitehead and talked to a Tikki Statue in a cave. He called the statue "Oliver". Yes I do watch Brady Bunch reruns. I love the Hawaii & Grand Canyon weeks.
Vincent Price redeemed himself after the Brady Bunch by being the voice in Michael Jackson Thriller video and song!!!
His voice was great and that creepy laughing! Best parts of the song! I love watching the long versions of the video and the song. But what is creepy is this....
Vincent Price has Alice Cooper in Chains !! Maybe that is where the group Alice In Chains got their name... LOL That is a creepy looking chest Alice Cooper has.... He didn't need to wear that opened stetchy thing-a-ma-jeg. Now... that is Scary! Even more scarier than Vincent Price !!! LOL
I have spent with day with grandson Josh.. We are watching Cartoons on Demand.

Was a Freebie chart I downloaded off a website, I can't remember who designed it. All those beads were rolling everywhere... Remembered why I don't like working with the beads. LOL
This ornament I also sent to the breast cancer auction. It was from a Heart In Hand kit. The little bag came with it. I sent it along with the ornament so, whomever wins it can stick it back in the bag when they remove from their tree. This one had a lot of French knots. Whole beard was done in them. I don't mind French Knots.. Just beads....
This is pillow kit by : Trail Creek Farm. I have had this kit stitched for 2 years. All I had to do to finish, was attach green beads( again) for bat eyes, attach bats in corners and attach the stitched piece to the pillow. Well.... I attached the bats upside down.. So... I am just going to say the Witch put a spell on them and they can now fly upside down... Would that make them hang right side up to sleep.... LOL
Till Later.... and .....5 More Days Till Halloween

That blue with the red check flowers!!! Girls , she was mine !!! I loved dragging her to all my friends and Cousin Andrea's house to sleep over! She even had a matching carrying bag. Oh.. How I miss her. I think the last I saw of her... she was pretty bad off. Torn and Faded from all that in and out the car and washings. Oh, what tails she could tell on us... Maybe not.. I was about 6 when I got her, but I kept her a lot of years. Young carefree years and Christmas time!
Yes, Don't be drooling over my Christmas!!! LOL I received Malibu Barbie in the blue and Malibu Skipper in the two piece suit. Dig those groovy glasses on their heads! Many hours of enjoyment from those girls.. and I almost forget the most important doll:
There He is ladies!!! Don't everyone crowd the computer screen!!! Malibu Ken!!! I also got that Barbie Camper & the big red Car. Look at that green suit in the bigger picture! Boy, He was a chick magnet! LOL
That beauty on the lower right with the red & white stripes.. Yep.. Santa gave me one of those. How could you forget those 2 faces on the inside. I stared at those forever while listening to, Puff The Magic Dragon, On Top Of Old Smokey, I'm A Little Teapot, and a whole bunch of 45's that I kept in a little stand-up box with a handle. Couldn't found a picture of the record box.. Psss, I think my mom got it from somewhere else, besides Sears....I just have to mention my cousin Todd on this blog... There is 8 months difference in us. He always got cool boy stuff for Christmas!!! I always got to play with his stuff when he didn't know it. Well, one year he got a bike, I could ride a bike, he was trying without much hope. He did manage to learn ladies.. Don't feel sorry for him. He is a charmer, and I am still a tomboy at heart. He also happened to get one of these: Hippity Hops
See that red thing with that boy is on, looking like he is riding a bull? That thing is called a Hoppity Hop. It should be outlawed! It is a weapon! How do I know?... well, I will tell you. I decided since Todd was not riding his bike.. I would. I jumped on it and rode up the street. When I came back and turned into their driveway, he came at me running and screaming at the top of his lungs and had that Hoppity Hop flying around over his head like a helicopter. I may be embellishing this... No I am not.... anyway He hit me so hard with that Hippity Hop. It knocked me off the bike onto the driveway. I couldn't bend my knee on one leg. I drug myself to the carport, Aunt Judy and mom came out to check on me.. Mom said" you are alright". She aways says this.. even now. Maybe she tries to convince herself we are OK.. Anyway.. I was not. Chipped a bone off the kneecap. Wore a cast for a while. Oh, But those a great memories! Are ya'll still with me?I won't even talk about the Pogo Stick! Todd had one of those too! That little boy in the picture looks about 3. I would not even get Joshua a Pogo Stick. He is a little accident prone anyway. Takes after his Gigi.. LOL I did get a new bike about every Christmas. I was ruff on Bikes and Shoes. I remembered those white baskets with flowers. I can't remember what my bikes looked like there were so many! But I would love to have this one now. Brand Spanking New...
Look at the pretty one with flowers on the basket and flowers on the seat !!! I wish they still made these. When Zoe gets older I would get her one!! My brother was not born till January 1972. If he had been around and older. I would like to think Santa would have brought him this:
Look at those big fat tires !! I like it myself. Remember when Mini Bikes looked like this? I never got one. I was a girl....
Now I will tell you something. I had started another post. A little rant about visiting our Local Joann's, that I didn't even know we had. But I stumbled across that wishbook site and well... I feel a lot better now.. I am smiling and thinking of Christmas' Past. Thanks mom. You and dad always came through.. Oh I mean.. Thanks Santa !!! Till later....

I have been reading this:
My mom gave me this book awhile back. I am waiting to get a book in a series by Robyn Carr. Friend Deborah turn me on to her books. Well, back to Look Great Feel Great. I pick it up night before last. Started reading and I have been glued ever since. I am overweight, a diabetic, and have issues.. LOL Last night it came to me while reading... I don't take The Time the to try to eat right... I admit that I think it is just easier to drive through that fast food window and scarf the food down, then to buy good food and prepare it. Joyce says," This is the only body I will have here on earth! "She is right. If I damage this one, I can't trade it in like a car ! This book is, so far helping me come to terms with some things I have never thought of. Things I am doing to myself.. Like Stress. I also found out... I don't like Change ! Change is big stress for me. Changing my eating habits is a BIG change... My last job was a big stress, times in the office were changing on a daily bases. I had other times going on in my life. Daughter had a ruff pregnancy, mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and then my job... all at the same time.... I couldn't handle it at work. I left the workforce in 1 day. Had a meltdown.... I knew that I was needed for my family. Family comes first! So change.... or should I say, anything that is different or interrupts my world is a big stress factor... If you are still reading... Thanks for listening!!! LOL
Maybe I will have some stitching pictures tomorrow. I have to buy batteries...
1:05 pm update*
*PS ... I want to thank everyone for their comments on Wicked. It was so fun to stitch and make into a necklace. I also have another I will stitch of a witch. When... I don't know... Hopefully by next Halloween.

I have a story about these nails.. Now my family knows I bite my nails... In the late 80's, I purchased me some of these beauties... I put the beauties on with the included stick-em pads. Never mind that I had to load the dishwasher.. easy task... No, I lost about 3 nails... thought came to me... Hey... put them on with super glue!!! Yes... Problem solved, I thought.... Decided I would light a candle with the 1980's Bic lighter.. Well Long nail story short.. I burnt the nail when I went to Flick my Bic.... End on Press On Nails!!! Then I had to figure out how to get the other nails off that I had super glued... Soaked nails in everything.. , I finely pulled them off after a day or two of working on them.. Still had glue on the nail bed. But Hey, They were off! LOL
I still go through spells of chewing off my nails. Nervous habit... I let them grow, buy all kinds of new polish, keep them polished. Then, the next thing I do is bite them down to nothing... I have bought the Stop Biting Stuff. It does work!!!
They just did a segment on the 80's Big Hair!!! Oh my my my...
Well back to the Rescues & The 80's. Till Later......

I am cleaning the homestead today. It is a slow go. Everywhere I look, I see stuff in piles.... LOL Why is that?.. I think I just put it all in piles and deal with it later.. My clean clothes to fold is all on the sofa. At least it is not made it into a tub .. yet.... LOL Ya'll know me.. Queen of the tubs...

I did work on attaching my Boo/Homespun Elegance Freebie to the top of my wooden box. I am not happy with it. It needs something too... I will also take it's picture tomorrow.. Boy, I have a lot to shoot tomorrow.. LOL
Grand babies went to the Ol' Baker Farm today.. They went on the hayride and picked their own pumpkins. Their mom had great pictures of them. I will get some from her and post them. I am finally glad Fall has arrived. I love looking at every one's Fall and Halloween decorations on the blogs. I will have to take pictures when I clean up the homestead here.. Not my favorite thing to do!
