Wow, another post!!! WooHoo!

Just a drive by post.  There were a few comments from my last post that I want to reply to and I do want to say thank you for your positive words about my SLUMP.  I am happy to say that I did finish the LHN ornament (hopefully to be ornamentified this weekend) and I put needle to fabric last night.  I worked on Lizzie*Kate's Snowman 2010 and I have to tell you that it felt really, really good to stitch!   I am debating on if I'm going to stitch the entire piece or just the snowman and the band of snowflakes beneath him and ornamentify him too.  What do you think?

Now to answer the questions....
Well, Jennifer asked about the piece hanging above the Lizzie*Kate Halloween cube.  That piece is from Blackbird Design's boo, Trix or Treats.  I stitched it on 36 count linen and I wish that I would have stitched with 2 threads instead of one because the coverage on the pumpkin looks rather sparse in my humble opinion.  My DSIL wants that piece desperately so I may just send it to her and stitch it again.

And Sharon asked if I display my Halloween pieces in one place or all over the house.  Well, I usually display them mainly in 3 rooms.  In my kitchen, I usually put them on the oak shelf.  In my sunroom, usually I try to put together some sort of vignette on the console table behind the sofa.  In my family room, I put things  on the mantle or the fireplace hearth.  These are the rooms I spend most of my time in.  Right now, I have a wooden bowl filled with potpourri and some witchy stitchin' that I did last year on my kitchen table in addition to the things on the oak shelf.

So, my stitchy friends, there ya go!  I really appreciate all your wonderful comments.  It makes me smile to know that you guys are out there!  Thanks for coming by and stop again!  There might just be ornaments for you to see....

Many blessings!
