Halloween is Coming!

A little while ago, I won this draw on Daffycat’s blog. And today it arrived in my mailbox, looking even more wonderful in person than it did in the picture. Take a look:

Now I am totally in the mood for Halloween. Thankfully, I have a pile of things to stitch: the ornaments/pins in the September issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework, four of the Brooke’s Books witches, ornaments from the JCS Halloween issues, and a Mill Hill kit. So, today, I grabbed the easiest one, the Mill Hill kit, and got started:

Starlight Ghost by Mill Hill - WIP

I didn’t feel too guilty starting this since it is a quick stitch, and because I have finished the inner border of Kitchen Blessings.

Kitchen Blessings by Enchanting Lair - WIP

Not bad, eh? That’s another September goal conquered. And it seems like Someone up there is rewarding me for doing so well with my goals this month: I’ve won a couple more draws! I won the pattern for the Lillian cardigan in the Crafty Diversions draw I shared with you, one of these lovely needle gauges (which I was lusting after) through a group I frequent on Ravelry, and this draw by Stitch Bitch. I’m pretty sure I’ve used up my luck for the rest of the year. 🙂

Next post: pictures of the Inga bag.  Promise!
