Tricks and Treats

 This isn't my usual over the top Halloween post because I'm just not feeling it this year. I may make donuts tonight. Maybe. I may put on my witch hat and watch Hocus Pocus while sipping a Bloody Mary. Maybe. I did get this finished. All most. I need to put on the copper beads but that will be for next year.



 I got the words all finished on this Halloween sampler. Every night in October I lit up the pumpkin lights, watched one episode of Supernatural on Netflix and stitched a little. I am going to miss that.



 Poor Jack O'Lantern didn't get any attention at all.


 You have to rest your arms on the frame to stitch and since my arms were covered in poison ivy it was a no go. Ouch.


 I did pull out the wool I will use for the background. Next year.



In a month that was sadly filled with anything but-the Kindness block got done on the Sheep Virtues Sampler. Up next is Gratitude.



Inktober was a success. Every day I inked a little something. It was brain candy during some tough times. I highly recommend it.



Happy Halloween everybody. Eat, drink and be scary!

  9. Happy Halloween! I wish we could drink bloody mary's somewhere together and watch costumes go by. My kid opted to hang out at his friend's house instead of us boring parentals.

  11. How awful! I'm so glad she listened to you and went to the ER. Hope the children that practiced there are okay and healing wishes to your daughter.
