Well time sure does fly. My oldest darling daughter turned 21, my son is home visiting, and Halloween is just around the corner. Good Heavens! The year is almost gone.......again! Panic begins to set in for a multitude of reasons. Oh day at a time.

I've been stitching on my Just Nan piece, pic coming soon. I promise. On the needles is the MilkyWay shawl and soon a pair of socks for Kristy (aka DD1). Off the needles? 2 dishcloths for my Ravelry Group Hogwarts at Ravelry. I'm taking Care of Magical Creatures, Defense Against the Dark Arts, and Appartitions. Tons of assignments, so I'm knitting, knitting and more knitting. Below is the dishcloth for my very first Hogwarts assignement (I'm in Ravenclaw). This is what my Boggart turns into. Fun stuff. Unfortunately, it does not photograph well. I will post next project soon. Til safe and keep stitching.

Halloween Finish

Oh Happy Day! I have completed a Cross Stitch piece! Yes, take your time, and catch your breath. Ok, all better....

I have worked on and finished many knitting pieces this year and have been stuck in cross stitching purgatory as I work on my "Big Round Zipper" piece. But after feeling inspired with the girlfriends last weekend and our trip to Port Charlotte, I purchased, started and now have finished my first cross stitch piece of 2010! I....know.....exciting stuff here. Below is my "Halloween" finish. This design makes a pin cushion (that part is not done, but I did order the crushed walnut shells from the pet store), The design is by Raise the Roof, and is just so cute...I can't wait to stick pins in it!

I'm inspired to keep stitching.....What's next..................................
