September WIPocalypse Update

It's finally fall, my favorite time of the year.  The only down side is that winter isn't far away, and that's my absolutle least favorite time of the year.  But for now, I will revel in Halloween goodness.

So for a stitching update...just two WIP pictures this month.  My stitching mojo seems to be weak lately.  But I have worked on some fall/Halloween projects.

First is Jeanette Douglas's Pumpkin Sampler.  It's working up fast.

And I've been working on a Halloween ornament by Fresh Threads Studio.

And while I haven't been stitching, I have done a bunch of finishing.

And I almost have the little pumpkin done (just needs it's stem).

And of course I already decorated for Halloween.  :)

And that's all I have for this month.

Blue Moon WIPocalypse update

I'm a bit late again, because I'm on vacation.  :)  But it ends tomorrow, sadly.  Still, it was so nice to have some time away from work.

So, the main triumph this month was finishing Phoenix, which I got done during the Olympic "sprint".  I posted it then, but I'll post it again.

I tried to sprint on Sewing Jars, and I did get the cross stitch done!  But the 15 (!) colors of backstitch bogged me down.  But it's coming along slowly.

I also worked on a couple of my crazy January projects, Tiny Pumpkin Etui and Winter Sampler.

These are panels of a pincushion.  Two are done, and I started the third.

And Magnolia is also coming along slowly.

I have a couple of new starts, Pumpkin Sampler by Jeannette Douglas from the Halloween issue of JCS and a Halloween crochet project (spider garland).

I also got into a crafty mood and started some finishing, as well as a smaller version of the glass pumpkin I did last fall.

And that's it for another month!
