Ready for Halloween!!
I finally finished my house on Leigh's Drawn Thread House RR Sunday - I'm the spooky one in the neighborhood! LOL I jinxed myself by saying earlier in the month that I was going to be on time with this and ended up being almost a week late. I'll have to watch that next time!
Here's a close up of my part. In addition to shortening the house, I had to move the ghost over. I started stitching the tree and realized I was taking up WAY too much room - there is just a little over half of the fabric length left and four houses to go. I'm anxious to see how this looks when it's finished!
Over the weekend I also started a Halloween scarf using the Zig Zag pattern again. This is some of the yarn that Jodi sent me a few weeks ago. It's really soft and I love how it's turning out!! Its got a strand of shiny rayon-like thread woven through it too. I've almost finished one skein and I think I'll use half of another one, so I should be able to get two scarves out of the three skeins!
And I have to share this - we've been having some wild fires in the county and I live right up against the side of a mountain with a big field in back - not a good place if a fire breaks out back there! Anyway, just to be on the safe side, I've packed up all of my stitched items from around the house and put them in a 100L tub placed by the front door in case we have to evacuate. Looks like Ellie is all ready to go too! ROFLOL
