The second interior wall is done. There will be a piece of orange plaid fabric in the shape of a hat between the bat at the top and the hat's brim at the bottom. This is for needles and I think a couple of gold plated ones will look really nice in it.

Now for the good news. We have moved into the 21st Century and now have High Speed Internet....good bye dial-up. Our 30th anniversary is next month and this was my gift along with a new cell phone with unlimited talk time and long distance.
Not much stitching for me today but did some shopping. Since we were on the other side of town had to check out the Michael's there. I wanted some more beads to make some more Fobs and also started getting things for the 12 Days Exchange. It is a really really nice Michael's and will probably go back to that one since it has a better selection of things than the one closer to home.
Well it's getting really late and I must do some more web surfing since it's so much faster now.
Until next time....Happy Stitching
Roof 3 (another froggie here)
Probably won't have another update until Saturday and hope to be done with the walls by then. Will be spending some time tomorrow (today) and Friday waiting for DH Tracy while he has some more medical tests and then his eye surgery. I'm not real comfortable stitching in waiting rooms so not sure how much I'll get done.

The Interior is now under construction and the floor is done. The Interior walls don't have as much stitching on them so with any luck they will be done by this weekend and then contruction can begin. There is a chance this will be done by Halloween so keep your fingers crossed for me.

Date night Thursday was really enjoyable. We went to the Belliago to take pictures of the new Fall display. I have included a couple of my favorite parts of the display here (you can see more in my Webshots, link in the sidebar). It was getting dark when we arrived so the pictures didn't come out as well as I would have liked. Guess that means we will have to go back for the ones that didn't come out. Below you can see my favorite guy, The Apple Tree. His eyes would open and close, he raised his eyebrows and talked. It was really fun to see the looks on the kids faces when the tree talked to them. I also love the scarecrow, he must be working since there were no crows to be found.
We went out again on Friday night for dinner and a trip to Michael's. They were putting out all the Christmas decorations and I found some really pretty cording. There was 1 complete aisle of just Christmas ribbon and I will be going back for some to make a cube with my "Tis the Season" finish.
That's what I've been up do since last I posted, hope you enjoyed the pictures and will venture over to my Webshots to see the rest of the Belliago display.

Another exterior wall of Scream House is completed (Except for beads on the fence). Two more exterior walls to do and then I can move to the inside walls and roof. This is really a fun one to stitch and can't wait til it's time to put it all together.

This is where I had a visit from the darn froggies. They really like the eyelet's and wanted me to stitch them over and over. Not as much progess as I would have liked but every stitch done today will be one less to do tomorrow. I know it won't be done for Christmas this year, maybe next.
I really need another Fall piece to go on my new shelf and I just couldn't pass up this adorable design. I'm stitching the pumpkin on 32 ct Lambswool Jobelan with WDW Terra Cotta. In the picture the threads look more red than they actually are. This will be another quick stitch and hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend.

This is what the border on the Biscornu looks like. The color doesn't show up that well here but it is a dark red on opalescent fabric. I did get all four of the borders done (I did tell you I'm doing two of these didn't I)

The stitching for the "boo" Tin Top is now done. I still have to add the beads and the center embellishment. I should be able to get both the tin and the needlebook put together this weekend.
Today (Friday) was Santa SAL in my ILCS group so spent a little time working on a new project. I got this chart on my last venture to the LNS. I think this is just the first of many of JBW Designs I will be doing. I love the charts and how easy they are to do. This shouldn't take long to finish.
As many of you already know I LOVE the Sweetheart Tree designs and this is one of the new designs. Again I will be doing two of them, one for myself and one for Deborah M. There is a matching scissor fob that I will do also.
