Scream House & Santa Day

Today got off to a rough start. Woke up late, stubbed my toe on DH's heavy work boots, walked into the wall on my way to the bathroom. Then still half asleep went into the kitchen to make coffee and the coffee maker quit working. Didn't even get a cup out of it. At this point I'm thinking maybe I should just go back to bed and pull the covers over my head. DH saved the day and went to the convenience store and got me a cup of coffee and the day improved from there.

SCREAM HOUSE.....

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.
Interior Wall 2, Witches Hat




SANTA DAY....
After finishing the witches hat and starting on Wall 3 my eyes (and weak brain) really needed a break so I thought I would do something for Christmas. My order from 123 Stitch arrived with 2 more JBW charts (pictured below) and I just couldn't resist starting on one. It is now 1/2 done and won't take long to finish. I wanted to do these for my Seasonal Shelf to go with the LK December Stamp so I'll make a Tuck Pillow to put it in. I think the next mitten will be done on dark blue fabric with white stitching and then I want to stitch one in green, maybe on light green with dark green thread.

Time for me to head for bed but I'm going to make sure DH's boots aren't on the path to the bathroom first.
Until Next Time, Have a good weekend....Happy Stitching

Holly Molly, what a morning you had! I hope you have another coffee maker by now... mornings without coffee are just pure dreadful...
Your stitching is lovely, as always. Congrats on the new stash.

Sounds like a good reason to have to stitch all day. Poor toe is a mess, the headache you must have from walking into the wall and then poor DH haveing to go get the coffee. Yep,,,sit down, put the feet up and stitch to get rid of the headache :~). It is so exciting watching "Scream" come alive. The mitten is so cute, too.
