October WIPocalypse, Stitch from Stash and Pumpkin Pie


WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi's Musings

Each month we have to share the projects we want to complete before the End Of The World.  Since 2011 I have chosen a number of projects to focus on that year, starting with my "11 in '11" and increasing to "21 in '21" for this year.  This month I stitched on just 2 of them and met 2 WIPGO Goals.   

8. Just Nan Scream House

20. CCN Halloween Village Cafe 

stitched on 32 count Murano in Charcoal Slate from Sparklies

The full list can be seen here - WIPocalypse and 21 in 21

Measi always gives us a topic to discuss too:

October – Do you prefer Halloween or Christmas stitching?

Well, I think that is pretty obvious, don't you?  If you take a look at my Happy Dance blog, the Christmas label has 45 entries and the Halloween label has 87.

This month's pie bears out what you can see above - it was a spooky Dark October:

I made the pie look more an actual pie this month as there were only two main projects stitched on!

Stitch from Stash saw the last of the Birthday presents being collected from my LNS.  I ordered the latest Just Nan spooky mouse which had arrived and while I was there I picked up a sweet little mini sampler from a designer called Full Circle Designs, copyright 2001.

Full Circle Designs Moonshadow Mini "A Child's Dream"

Isn't this sweet?  It even comes with the little moon button

Finally, the annual Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop is now live, so get hopping around and try discover the Mystery Phrase.
