New Look for October

Coming from Australia we've never really celebrated Halloween although autumn is one of my favourite times of year, and I've always had a thing for the fun spooky stuff :)

Of course since moving here all that has changed, and Halloween has sort of become a big thing in this house ... well for me and the kids, not so much DH :)

Hence the new look :)

I have been stitching - a HAED piece that DS chose late last year and asked me to stitch for him. It involves wizards and dragons - two of his favourite things and luckily mine too. I did start it earlier this year but unfortunately didn't get very far. There's not much to show but blobs of blue at the moment - I'll post progress pics when there's more to see. Oh, this is the chart - The Encounter - I started in the top left corner so you'll see what I mean about blobs of blue!

Thank you Rachel, Cathy, Sharon, Sally, Kim and Lelia for dropping by and admiring my latest ornament finish. Sharon and Kim, I hope you get your respective mojos back soon too!

I'm about to go and make myself a cup of tea, settle into my stitching chair and watch American Chopper :)

That HAED design looks very involved (as they all do I suppose)! I can't wait to see how it comes together for you :)
