Just Crossstitch Halloween Ornie Issue

Just stopping by to post a quick picture of the new Just Crossstitch ornie issue.  The little green witch at the bottom of the cover is my contribution to the magazine.  I always look forward to seeing the new designs, and I love the variety of this year's designs.  There are several more ornament designs inside the magazine so if you get a chance, pick up a copy and take a peak.  
Lots going on here.  We've just welcomed a new fur baby into our family.  Her name is Francesca, she is an eight week old black pug, the sister of our Lucy Lu.  She has the same cleft palete issue that Lucy has, but she is eating well and is soooo full of life.  She is so small that she fits in my hand.  She perches on my shoulder like a parrot.  I'll get a pic up in the next day or so.  Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your week!!

August already?

Another hot and sunny Summer day here in Tennessee, so I popped outside to take a few snaps of my latest finishes to show you.  First is another little pillow, this one a Ewe and Eye & Friends design.  I love the little jabc buttons, reminds me of candy dots, yummy little rows of pastel sugar.
Next, this adorable little witch from Brooke's Books.  One of a series of three, it's done on perforated paper and was a blast to stitch. The really fun part was cutting the pieces apart and attaching them to create the finished piece.  Her little girls are adorable and have such detail, can't wait to stitch the other two in the series for my Halloween tree.  On the home front, lots of family stuff happening here, won't bore you with the deets, but it is making for some late night stitching, so I'll have lots more to show you.  Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by.
