This is a Lizzie Kate that I will make up into a cushion. There is only so much wall space one has to hang all the stitching.

And here are two of my finished 'Be' series from Shepherds Bush that I am also going to make into cushions.
I ordered the Be Jolly buttons from a shop and they were meant to supply the pattern for free, but they didn't and now the shop has closed down so I am left with the buttons and no pattern!

I know I am an Ozzie but I just love the Halloween Holiday spirit. Ever since our first posting overseas I have decorated the house and got into the "spirit" of the night. I am just a big kid at heart really.
This is another of my WIP. Carriage House, VOHRH. I started with the graveyard first so that I got the biggest block over and done with first. Thank you for looking.

These are two of my WIP's. I have finished the outside of my 'Spook House' from Just Nan and have done one inside wall. The other is a Shakespeare's Peddler-I love the birds, which I am using NPS and am just loving the feel of the silk threads. Umm I wonder how much it would cost to get one of every colour???
I will post some recent finishes soon.

Ooo, look what came in the post for me yesterday. 
I made the most of the Stitching Bits and Bobs sale. I will start with my linen purchase, I love the Weeks Dye Works Gingham so I bought a yard of the Straw/Natural and 1/2 a yard of the Gray/Straw. I also bought some WDW Onyx for a Halloween piece. Now for the charts - LaDDa's, Like Home, Love is Little, A Falling Star, Merry Sunshine, Miss Mary Mack and Mocking Bird. The Prairie Schooler's Rabbit Folk and Kitchen Table. Heart in Hand's Spring, Easter, Christmas, Autumn, Summer, Valentine, Halloween and Winter Bird. Drawn Thread's Halloween Spot. Dames of the Needle, N is for Noah. Finally Blackbird Designs, Trix or Treat.
I am so looking forward to stitching these. 
I haven't posted for a while since my boys had used up all our broadband allocation last month and I had to wait for the new period to start. We have increased our download so now I hope not to have any problems. Until next time.
