Some Finds Today !

 These are some thing I picked up this week out looking around in stores.. I found these 2 magazines at Hobby Lobby & Books A Million.  I was kind of disappointed in this years Halloween Tricks & Treats Magazine. A lot of Pumpkin Carving and a big spread on Alice & Mad Hatter's Tea Party. The Craft's & Things magazine had more my stuff. Needlepunch, Rug Punch, Cross stitch and multi-media art - Paper/fabric things. I thought is was a better Magazine.
 I also got this box from Hobby Lobby. It is for me to use with the Casting Spells by Blackbird Design. I will stain it first.
 I am going to try and do a black stain.. Not just painting it Black.. I want it where I can see  a little of the grain.. So hurry down to your Hobby Lobby. They only had 2 on the shelf in my area.
 I can't wait to get my chart I ordered. It should be here soon. 
 I had bought 2 of these Coffins at the end of last season at Michaels for .99 each. They have them again this year. $2.99 So.. I bought another one.  Can't have two many coffins!   lol
I seen this Kit by Fern Ridge Collections called - A Coffin To Die For. I thought is was so cute, til.... The price $ 46.00 for 28 count Cashel, Sullivan floss, Batting, Needle, & Coffin.  OK... NO Scissors included..  I thought I might do my Coffins with a Vampire in one, laying , and a padded top with RIP cross stitched in the top. I seen someone last year on a blog, did a Skeleton and put it in the coffin. That was so cute!  I might just make the other a Pin Keeper.
My mind is going 80 miles an hour with ideas.. Now to try and stop it so that I can stitch !  urghhhh

Hi, April ~ I love fall craft magazines & I'm definitely going to our Hobby Lobby to see if they have those boxes. Love the pattern too. Those coffins are just too darn cute, I haven't seen those before. Thanks for sharing & happy stitching.

Oh wow, April, that box was a great find! I can't wait to see progress pics. Man, I miss the Halloween merchandise back in the US! Love the magazines!

I love that box and how you are going to fill it with the Casting Spells of Blackbird Designs, it is so cute!

I love the coffin too and I think it's a good idea making one of them a Pin keeper.

I picked up my box from Hobby Lobby on Friday, not sure how I'm going to finish it, since this will be my first time trying something like this.

Great Halloween stitching! You're so lucky to have Hobby Lobby. The only thing we have here is Michael's which don't have the boxes at all. It's going to be such a great piece when it's finished.

You did well! LOL! I'm hoping they might have those boxes at Michael's here in Canada but I doubt I'll be that lucky :o( Love the coffin ideas!

Love it! Was that box made just for the design?
