WIP's and a JCS Halloween Mag Giveaway!

Edited to add: Magazine Winner is Leila!

Happy Fall everyone! I know I have been a terrible blogger but unfortunately life gets in the way. It especially got in my way with MD appointments and work! But, on the upside I have been stitching, slowly but surely. Perhaps I will finish something in the not so distant future! I know-it would be shocking right? LOL

This is Where My Flowers Blooms by Blackbird. When I last posted I had put in the blue the pattern called for and hated it. Reminded me of a baby for some reason and y'all know I get enough babies at work! So lots of reverse stitching later I finally found a color I could live with, thanks to stepping stone from Crescent colors. So I am happier with it, I started work on one of the trees on the side of the house and took it out not once but three times-yikes! So, I am going to step away from it a bit. Don't you think it looks better?

This is Elenor Ferrow 1842 by Shakespeare's Peddler. I love it! It has been a joy to work on. I am using the recommended fabric which is 32 count natural Belfast and GAST colors. This is what it will look like when finished.

Now, last but not least, I have a 2011 JCS Halloween ornament magazine to give away. I have an extra one I don't need and if you are interested then please leave me a comment to this post only. I will draw a name on Halloween. So though it won't help you this year, it will certainly help next! As always, thanks for stopping by!
