A post-Halloween update and election week

Happy post-Halloween! I worked on Fancey Blackett's Brooms this week and here's my progress so far! 


I'm in love with the linen color and mottling. And I'm in love with that simple and prim Fancey Blackett. This is a really fun stitch so far. She is so cute.

Halloween was really subdued. We had way less than half the Trick or Treaters as we normally do, which is great considering the horrific pandemic numbers we have in this country. The full moon was beautiful and the weather was chilly but mild. We had pumpkins to carve, and fun foods to eat. All in all, I'm thankful.

I'm kind of looking forward to T-giving, in that it will be a bit less stressful than having everyone over. BUT, not looking forward to not being able to have everyone over. Does that make sense? I don't want that to be an event where anyone gets sick. Hopefully next year we will be able to do it. 

I did send the deposit for our beach vacation next year, so I'm a little optimistic about where we might be by that time. Fingers crossed. And speaking of fingers crossed, I'm hoping the election will be finished by tonight. My stomach has been in knots since Tuesday. 

I hope everyone gets some stitching in during this stressful week/weekend. And I will see you soon with a Fancey Blackett update!

Until then,


  1. Fancey is looking good.
    Love those Pumpkins.
    Not sure about Thanksgiving here also.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Marilyn! Let's hope for a better one next year!

  2. Fancey is looking good. What fabulous pumpkin carving at your house! Thanksgiving is going to be a very quiet day here with just the two of us as my Mom has canceled the family gathering. Happy Friday and have a good weekend, Tammy!

    1. Sorry to hear that Robin. The times necessitate it though it seems. I'm just hoping for a better one next year. You have a great weekend too!
