Let's start the post with some pie!
Quite a successful last few days of the month. I completed the second block on the Bothy Threads 12 Days of Christmas and ticked off a box on my WIPGO Board for that.

Here are the first two Days completed:
My goal is to complete Day 3 by the end of the year.
Another last minute finish, this was the Summer Band Sampler SAL with the Just Nan Junkies. I completed the stitching but needed time to sort out which beads I was going to use as I didn't have the embellishment pack. Then I decided to stitch the little ornament Nan included in with the main chart:

So many pretty stitches and different effects in this sampler
Not so silent hours in my case as this was stitched over the Summer Holidays with a very not silent child sitting next to me!
This line reminds me of my dear friend Vickie and her blog A Stitcher's Story
Love these tassels
This is the Ornament design she included:
Hopefully this will be FFO'd in time for Rachel's FFO Gallery.
I took the Tiny Modernist Greenhouse to work and continued with the outline:

The WIPGO Board is looking great now, with four numbers ticked off in September!
The numbers called for October included one spooky project and one non-spooky project so that one will have to wait until November.
Stitch From Stash looks like I spent a lot but it was all Birthday money so a nil return for September.
I have received three of the Nora Corbett Zodiac charts already and I'm waiting for the next three. I do plan to collect all 12 but they will have to wait until Christmas now.
The Stitch It Picasso spend was an impluse thanks to Tiff and Rachel. I bought the Dragons they were stitching and also the Zodiac series and some Haunted Houses. Here's the link to the shop - Stitch It Picasso on Etsy
As Leonore guessed, it didn't take me long to start one!
Here is the first colour completed on Dragon 2:
32 count Autumnal Woodland by Crafty Kitten
I started with Dragon 2 because when I cut the piece of fabric I had, it was the perfect size for three of the dragons. The dragons are different sizes and shapes so it make the best use of the fabric I am stitching them out of order.
Finally, there will be a Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop as usual this year. I am sure you all know how it works but for those who need a reminder - here's a link to last year's
