Almost Halloween HD

I saw a model for this piece at the Houston Quilt Show last year. The Silver Needle had it stitched on 40 count, and I fell in love. It looks so delicate when stitched with such tiny stitches (I stitched it on 40-count dirty linen). This was a fun, quick stitch. It looks like my mojo's back!

I visited the eye doctor recently, and he told me my near vision is going to be going soon (I'm 42). My options will be bifocal contacts or reading glasses. Ugh. I have contacts so I don't have to wear glasses!

I'm almost finished a Just Nan piece too. I just need to paint the replacement charm and affix it. In the meantime, I'm working on a new Just Nan Halloween piece. I have lots of old WIPs, but that's how I lost my mojo. I don't want to lose it again, so that's my excuse for some new starts.

Band Sampler Round Robin - Autumn

My piece returned home from the Band Sampler round robin, and here it is! I finished up the border, and someday I'll make a wall hanging out of it.

Joan Elliott round robin

I'm doing a new round robin, and this one's theme is Joan Elliott designs. Stephanie's is first up.

I haven't been stitching much lately, but I enjoyed stitching on this. I've been reading instead of stitching. I even started writing fiction again, though I don't know if it's going to go anywhere. Writing is work for me, and it's not the most relaxing thing in the world. Not like reading or stitching.
