Another weekend coming to a close, eleven-thirty PM, a cup of Sleepytime tea at my side and all is well - well, finally. Spent half of last week with a stomach virus which kept me out of school most of Wednesday and all of Thursday. Luckily we had the day off on Friday, because there was no way I was going anywhere! By late Saturday afternoon I was able to stand up and get around. This was a relief because a few women were joining me for a celebration of the full moon - which by the way, was just a lovely and magical evening. By Sunday morning I was mostly back on track but stayed home just to be sure. Did a little stitching, a little napping and a little take-out for dinner - a peaceful, restful day.
I finished another little needlework mini - Hallows Eve this weekend. Both Wicked & Hallows Eve are freebies from Primitive Betty's (http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/18669910) - I love her designs. The other piece, Cat, is from Blackbird Designs' Trix or Treat booklet. Actually I love lots of designs which is why my stitching work is never done!
Toadstool Condo is decked out for the Hallows season. I stitched this Mosey & Me design back in 1995 and it has hung on the front door every year since. I can't remember the name of the design, but it was great fun to stitch. I made a few changes, one of which was adding a drawn thread border using a Needle Necessities thread that I believe was called Succotash - and that's exactly what it looks like! I love it! I will have more photos of Toadstool condo in all her Hallows glory later in the week! Until then...
