Halloween Finishes

I have finished 2 cross stitch pieces. This is the box.. It was my first try... I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do. Here is inside of the box...



This next one is from the chart by Homespun Elegance - All About Halloween. I stitched it on the called for Havana Linen and WDW's Swamp thread. I purchased that big Ric - Rack off Ebay. Had to make it into a cute Pillow !!!



Today is grandson, Joshua's Birthday!!! He is having a Wow Wow Wuzzy Birthday Party Saturday. My boy is turning 3 today !

I am still working on those Breast Cancer Ornaments... Maybe will finish them off today and have pictures tomorrow.

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...

Till Later.....

Your finishes look great! I love the fabric in the box and the Ric-Rak on your pillow - great choices!

My house has piles too! I wouldn't have it any other way.

Uh-oh! Another birthday means more cake!!! Happy Birthday to Joshua!

aren't finished projects the greatest? that's why I love to "craft" I do some work, and it doesn't get undone --- like that housework you mentioned!
