Two things.

Isn't this the prettiest chart. It came in the mail yesterday from Teejay . She drew my name from her blog comments and sent me this. It is the chart called Flutterbys by Workbasket, and a lovely card.
I really enjoy her blog and beautiful stitching.

I will enjoy this one for sure. I see sparkly fabric and thread in the near future.

I finished another ornament, This is by Heart in Hand the Halloween sampler. This was so much fun to stitch. The ghost doesn't show up too well in the picture but he really is there. [Oh yes he is a ghost right ] therefore we can only slightly see him.

I'm off to stitch on the JD album of stitches at Ann's this afternoon. I'll show a picture of that one again soon!

Have a great day and stitch with happy fingers.

You're welcome, I'm glad that you will enjoy it, I really do appreciate all of your wonderful comments for me. I can't wait to see what creative ways you will use it.

Your ornament is so cute!

You are doing some fast finishes now. I can see the ghost, and he is one very cute spooky guy.
Hope you have fun on your day out and congrats on your win.

Hazel said...

Lovely gift from Teejay. Fast work on the halloween design. xx

Congratulations on such a cute finish! That's a beautiful chart you received from Teejay.

All your WIP's are looking really good and the Christmas ornament is lovely.

The Jeanette Douglas chart looks interesting. I will have to go and have a closer look at this chart now.

I too got one from Tracey but its certainly no hardship to visit her blog its always so interesting.

I am looking forward to seeing your album of stitches, I have seen one or two of these and really like the idea.

Well done on your little finish Beatrice.

Lovely gifts you got there.

I like your new finish. Very cute. I can see the ghost though barely. Still, with it being a ghost, it's supposed to be invisible so it's all good ^.^

Flutterbies is such a pretty chart. I think sparklies are definitely in order!
Your Halloween ornie is really cute too!
Choir is back in full swing for us here. I've rejoined one so I'm back to two rehearsals a week now as well.

Congratulations on the win my girl. After seeing it on Teejay's blog, I know it will be stunning. And your ghost is just too cute for words

Hi Beatrice,

Congrats on the newest finishes.
I love the Halloween sampler and
its hint of ghost. I see him
peeking out at us! The colours
in this are wonderful, and I
really like that leaf button in
the corner. It adds a nice bit
of a three dimensional look to
the design.

And your Christmas ornament finish
is quite pretty too. A different
colour choice from the usual red
or green or gold. I like the
evergreen branches or twigs on
either side of the ball.

That chart that Teejay sent you
is lovely, and the colours are
beautiful. I remember seeing
her piece all stitched up and it
was amazing.

Good luck with the Album of
Stitches project. I've heard
scary things about stitching
on black, or dark fabric. But
the design will look just
amazing on that fabric so it'll
be worth the effort.

I enjoyed seeing your pictures
of the stitching weekend at
Kathy's. Dang...I was really
looking forward to meeting all
of you...and your Mom especially.
She's a legend around stitching
blog circles now. :)
