10th Day of Halloween

Remember today I’m at work, Day 9’s winner will go up this afternoon.

Edited to add: Winner of Day 9 is Nita! Congrats and I’ll be emailing you.

I do have Halloween things to share! I got word that my HOE did make to it’s new home in the Netherlands. Took about a week longer than it should have, but at this point I’m just grateful it made it there. My receivie was Ina (no blog) and the cute bug tackled me when I was putting her exchange together.

Biscornu by Barbara Ana stitched as charted (oh wait! I changed the 3371 to 310) on 28ct. Lambswool Jobelan & scissor fob by Cat’s Whiskers. For the fob I used the same colors that were used in the biscornu to make them more of a set.

Love the candy corn buttons I found, and instead of using Ina’s initals for the fob I used her name since it was 3 letters. Both Boo! & Ina are stitched over one. I also made the cording to match.

My first beaded edges!

And the whole package:

And of course I included a few crystal studded pins.

And after a trip through the Bermuda Triangle/Time Warp/Black Hole that exsists in the USPS somewhere over the western US I received my Fair & Square Halloween squares.

Julianne stitched these PS squares for me (from the Boo To You leaflet – which I love, I bought it!). Isn’t the house darling? Now the ribbon was my own, I included it in the shot so you can see how perfect it is for the house. I see a pinkeep in my future. πŸ˜€ And the above remark about the PO… this is far from the first time something from CA has taken an insane about of time to get to me. Julianne mailed first class on the 13th. It didn’t arrive until the 26th. I’ve had b-day cards from CA take 2 weeks. There is something going on out there that needs to be fixed, because TX to CA? 3 days or so…

Now what you all come here for! Day 10 Teaser:

Post once for one entry, post again if you mentioned me in your blog, and gals hosting the button on their blog – you only need to post a 3rd time if today is your first day hosting.

    Great job with the beaded edges on the fob. I haven’t tried that yet but I’ve seen enough beautiful finishes like yours that I am going to give it a try on some Christmas ornaments.

  16. I’m suffering, Missy. I’m officially hooked and can’t stop thinking about this giveaway. Will I really ever win? Do I, above all of my stitching friends above, deserve to win? Will the fates smile on me, anyway? It’s nagging at my inards! Please add me once again to that poor ragged basket of yours…or cauldron or whatever you’re using to choose the lucky few. I for one am tethered and drawn by the whole thing. With strained and weepy eyes, I remain your friend in stitches, Deb

  17. PS: Naturally, I will be mentioning your torturous giveaway on my blog once again. And, I loved your little biscornu, too, by the way. The candy corn is really adorable.
    Hugs, Deb
