"Oh heaven preserve us from a wife with fancy work run wild. With hands that never do aught else for husband or for child. Our clothes are rent, our bills unpaid, our house is in disorder, and all because my lady wife has taken to embroider." -Anon
Wow, what a week it's been in my house. Our party was a huge success, but it did rain. :( However, it cleared up around dark so that the kids could go out back and kick up their heels. Kick up the heels they did for SURE! Most of the night time outdoor shots came out blurry, but rest assured everyone had a fabu time.
Here's my little "Jason" on Halloween. He insisted on a chainsaw--though Jason was never known to carry a chainsaw (was he?). This kid has had "I did it my way" written all over him since the day he was born.
Now, you Shepherd's Bush fans will know full well that I have to finish two more rows at the bottom but we're well into November and I'm calling this Little Witch DONE. I will finish the rows, but wanted to show her off here first. She was fun, but I gotta say, I'm not the biggest fan of the silks. That's probably akin to blasphemy in the stitching world but, there, I said it! I do love Shepherd's Bush though. Oh, and I added another little rose at the top of the vine instead of the pumpkin button she came with......
So, there you have it. I'll be back real soon with another start. But today I'm going to In Stitches to see if I can get a match for my Headache Fairy. I need to finish her too! Have a great Sunday everyone. Thx for stopping in!
I've been married 29 years, have one 19 year old son and one little doggie. I've been stitching for about 26 years and it's my favorite hobby. I also sew, quilt, scrapbook, crochet, and do lots of generally crafty things. You'll find me making Halloween things all year round, as it's my favorite holiday! Thanks for looking at my blog.
