I'm still here!

I have been stitching and stitching and stitching!  But, no photos yet.  Rest assured I am still around and will be back to more regular blogging after Thanksgiving!

Finished! (Amy, look away)

I finished this for my sister, Amy today:

Two Girls by Industrioushead
Started 10-20-10, finished 11-4-10
Stitched on 28 ct white monaco over one with the recommended DMC

This will be her Christmas ornament this year.  Now I get to go to the fabric store to find the perfect backing fabric!

Halloween Results 2010

We had 38 trick or treaters, 23 boys, 15 girls.  Most popular costume was the ninja (7), we had 5 college kids with no costume, 1 Harry Potter, 1 Neville Longbottom, 2 Dorothys, 1 PacMan and 1 Claw machine.  Scott had a great time being a vampire and handing out treats.  Mort, the neighbor's cat, was his trusty assistant!  We had way more kids last year, but the weather coupled with the fact that it was a school night, made it a bit slower than last year.  All in all, it was a great way to celebrate 1 year in our new house!

EDITED TO ADD:  I forgot to mention the two inappropriately dressed tweens!  Inappropriate because of weather (they looked FREEZING!) and because of their ages (practically NAKED!).  We think they were going for Pirate Wenches...
