Laugh till you tinkle in your panties.

I found this while I was in Mystic. It just cracked me up. I had to have it.
And it has a really good function. The top has everyday of the week for appts. and a pen and post-its. I would have bought it anyway this just justifies the purchase.

I put down October so that I could do the LHN monthly designs. I am using lt. sand 32ct. fabric. I also changed afew of the colors. I used a darker orange and green and a more gold color. Below is October by PS. I 've made some good progress on it. I will go back to it when I finish the LHN designs.

This is the little guy that Cheryl made me for my birthday. I saw this free pattern on spool sewing.com and fell in love. I like everything fall, so she chose fall type fabrics. I stuck afew gold pins in the top to give him a headdress.

Saturday Cheryl and I went to our LNS. not really that local but we had all afternoon ) This is what I came away with. Of course, I told Cheryl that I only needed afew overdyes. You can see how well I stuck to that. I bought a Thanksgiving sampler from BRD, that I have never seen. A very old CEC scissor holder design, SB summer pillow design, scissor fob kit from SB that I have had my eye on and a oval box kit. Oh yea, I also remembered the floss.

I want to remind everyone that Belinda at Blue Ribbon Girl is having a great giveaway. Check it out.

I want to thank everyone for the comments. They mean alot. Til next time--Happy Stitching.

Do we ever stick to the idea that we only need a little floss in a needlework shop??? I don't think so...lol. Loving your autumn stitching! It is so much like autumn here today with our weather that it makes you really want to work on some fun projects. And here I am with a UFO that is so summer garden right now. I might set it aside and get a Halloween UFO out IF I can find it. I am not sure if it is in my basket or not. I got bored with it last summer and threw it aside. :-) I do love your PS October! Those charts are amazing and I stopped buying them for some unknown reason.

Mystic? As in the place in CT from Mystic Pizza fame? How neat if so!

Boy, you've had a great week for stash! I'm drooling all over my keyboard ;o)

What will you do with the monthly LHN series? Are you stitching them all on the same piece of fabric?
