One quick picture of my two best girls. Daughter Lisa and Granddaughter Lily checking out her Halloween treats. I think they are both pretty cute, but I could be accused of being a little less than objective. I spent the evening with them so that I could pass out candy while Lisa took Lily Trick or Treating. She was actually nice enough to invite Lily's Dad and Grandma to go Treating with them. I believe that she is much nicer than I ever would have been. Had one cute family go through the neighborhood where approx 2 yo was dressed as Buzz Lightyear, older brother was dressed as Woody, older sister was dressed as Jessie, and the parents were dressed as Mr & Mrs Potatohead!! They could not have been cuter. I was really mad that I didn't get a picture of them.
I thought I would show you my final October finishes. The first is Ghost number #11 of 12 in the Lizzie*Kate Boo series. I had to change the colors because of the change in fabric, so the ghost is grey instead of white. He just wouldn't show up in white. Also the borders are different because of the same thing - they were charted to be black and white, so I changed it to black and yellow. However yellow was supposed to be the inner border so I changed it to the orange color - I think it works okay.
And lastly, this is an ornament I stitched for my DGS Harrison. It is a Lizzie*Kate chart that really shows the reindeer holding up a sign saying NO PEEKING, but I just wanted to do his face. I changed the floss in this piece because the hat band was charted for oatmeal and that was the exact color of the fabric. So I used one strand of white DMC and one strand of Whisper Thread in White. I think it looks pretty good and fairly three dimensional.
I thought I would end with a list of goals for November. It is not going to be too lengthy as I am already in the busy holiday prep and holiday time. But here goes:
1) Finish the Boo Series and possibly send it out to be finished.
2) Do the finishing work on Harrison's ornament.
3) Stitch and finish the ornament for Lily
4) Stitch and finish an ornament for Cousin Linda
5) Work on Santa Clothes
Wish me luck!!
I do have one personal thing to tell you about because it is very thrilling to me. This morning I had my last radiation treatment for my breast cancer and so now I am done with all treatments and just have to take one pill a day. I will see the oncologist in two weeks and see what kind of walking papers he gives me. And one more thing. I have the sweetest boss ever. When I got to work today he had gone out and gotten my favorite doughtnuts to celebrate the occasion. Can't beat that!!
G0tta go now , but until I "see" you again know I appreciate your visits and comments and I hope that you have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
