Is it Christmas Morn yet??

Bronny has been feeling under the weather and has not been well enough to go to work. Her give away package was delivered to her workplace yesterday. I feel like Christmas morn and the kids haven't gotten up yet! Is this a normal feeling? Anxious and excited?!?

I have been stitching the last few days. I have pics but I waited too long to take the photo and the light is harsh. Please forgive the washed out look.
 Heart in Hand Monthly Mania 
14 ct hand dyed aida 

Crow Berry Sampler
Bent Creek
28 ct Platinum cashel

This should be completed by weeks end. Should be.

You remember the other day when I said, "No more stash enhancement for 3 months!"?
Then explain to me why I am all in a froth over this...

Thine is the Trick and the Treat - Cross Stitch Pattern

I have NEVER attempted anything like this before. I'm losing my mind.

Well, I'm off to peel potatoes. Ugh - hate peeling potatoes almost as much as instant ones.

Hope your day was great to you - Denise

Beautiful stitching there....I love the last one too and I am not really into Halloween, but that would spark my interest too.

I remember HIH now . . frommy days working at The Glass Needle . .a now defunct Stain glass/Needlework store in my hometown. I grew the BEST collection of books and fabric when i was there . . and had a complete set of DMC floss . . .all cleaned out when the eyes went bad . . . what I wouldn't give for them now ;0{

But, I did get hooked on Samplers there . . and Hardanger cut-work. I think I shall lay out of crochet projects . . except for a tot Swap I am organizing, after the New Year and get back with my 100 Blessings and then design a Snowman/hardanger sampler . . thanks to someone who sent me some Snowmen patterns:0}

LOVE the fact that January HIH is a Snowman . . guess they knew it was my birth month :0}}}}}}}

Sign me up for this one too, and I said the same thing to my enabler, "NO MORE STASH FOR OCTOBER" but then you get all of those wonderful newsletters with all of the latest designs and your words go to heck in a hand-basket realllllly fast.
Be always in stitches.
