Happy Invisible Dance!

Hello!

I hope you have all been having a great weekend. It has done nothing but pour with rain here today. Its been that really wet rain, you know?!

In other news...I have a finish done :) It is my Halloween Exchange Piece that I agreed to do with Shannon over at A Bit of This and That , I am feeling pretty pleased with myself because I have enjoyed stitching it, and I am pleased with the final result. The actual finishing isn't too bad but I have to warn Shannon that I used my sewing machine - for the first time - and so the edges may be a little wavy! :) I got the sewing machine last Christmas because I HAD to have it and it has only taken me 9 months to use it! lol

Obviously I can't post any pics until she receives it which will be some time in the middle of October.  But I have been stitching and am just deciding what to stitch for my Christmas Exchanges - I am pretty excited about them and will be more so when I know what I am stitching.

As usual I have lots of ideas and want to do lots of things but only one pair of hands - Eek! So I will have to prioritise.

I don't want to laden this post with loads of text (like last time) and am thus keeping it brief...I hope you have all been busy too and am going to be blog checking next!

  5. Congrats on the happy dance! Looking forward to seeing the picture when you can post it. And good luck with finding the right charts for your Christmas exchanges. There is never a shortage of charts for that season which is wonderful, but does make deciding difficult.

    Wet and chilly fall day here!

  8. I always say it'd be nice to have 3 heads and 3 sets of hands.... one to stitch, one to read, and one to do game. LOL!!!!

    I'm sure Shannon is going to LOVE that Halloween exchange. :D
