Happy Halloween and a quick finish

Happy Halloween.  It is one of my favorite holidays and Fall is my favorite time of year.  I love how all the leaves turn vibrant shades of oranges and yellows.  I love everyone dressing up and being creative.

I have a finish today and it is my last Halloween finish for 2016.  It was for the One Day Challenge that Honeybee graciously host on the 123stitch! message board.  It is fun and there is no pressure whatsoever.  This freebie is from 2010 and is called Ectoplasmic Kiss by The Cricket Collection.  Although it is no longer available, if you go here and click on the free design as she rotates very cute freebies.  The colors were more pastel but I changed the green and orange to match the ribbon.  I love how it turned out even though making circles is challenging. It might not be perfect but I still think it is cute.


I went to Michael's this morning and picked up these goodies.

I am not ashamed to say I love a good deal and I really scored on this trip.  Their Halloween/Fall items are 70% off and I got all of this for less than what the basket sold for regularly.  I am going to use the basket to store some of my kitted WIPS for downstairs.  My husband likes me to sit with him and it will be easy to reach in a grab a quick project.

Here is a close up to the metal spiders.  Can't wait to use them next year!

I also purchased a few things from Etsy.  I am telling you as soon as I joined Instagram a few months ago it really opened my eyes to new designers, charts and Floss tube.  I purchased 2 Thanksgiving charts (Happy Thanksgiving from Cloudsfactory and Happy Thanksgiving from Redbeardesign).  They are so cute.

Goals:  My goals for November is to continue to stitch on Happy Camper.  Thank goodness my SIL wasn't in a hurry for this.  I also want to stitch Happy Thanksgiving from Redbeardesign and November from Hands On Design since I only have 3 more months to go.  Yech!

Well thanks for reading and I hope you have a safe and fun Halloween.
