A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
Thank you to everyone who commented on my previous post and voted for which project I should start first. Just Nan's Haunted Autumn Mouse in a House took an early lead so that was the project I started on the 1st October and stitched for the first four days. One of those days was a full work day so I only got 30 minutes stitching in but I am still pleased with my progress.
We have an entire mouse:
stitched on 32 count cognac linen
All of the base and the outside border of the carpet square:
stitched on 32 count Antique Ivory linen

I have decided that this will be my 30-a-day project for the month. I have stitched 4 times 30 stitches on the carpet square and will continue with that for the rest of the month. I am not using the recommended fabrics because I'm stitching from stash and these are just as good!
While Autumn House took an early lead it was overtaken later on by Jardin Prive's Happy Hallowe'en Night, so that is what I will start tomorrow morning for days 5 - 8.
Finally, it's time to sign up for the Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop. All you have to do is leave a comment or send me an email. I will send you a letter of the alphabet which you show on your blog on 31st October along with some spooky stitching. We all hop around collecting the letters which will spell out a spooky word or phrase (depending on how many people sign up). At the moment we have enough for "Boo"!!
