Blogtoberfest Day 24 and Hootzi Is Here

Well I have totally missed out on completing Blogtoberfest. Who would have known that I would have all these things raining down on me?

Well I could have had a clue. With all the different types of flu going around I was bound to get my fair share. And considering where I work and meeting people from all over the world, I was sure I was going to catch something.

I started out with a sort of sore throat and sneezing. After a couple days of cold meds I developed laryngitis. I actually worked two days cause I didn't feel too bad. Second day my voice was almost gone and so I called in yesterday and stayed home.

I did get some stitching done on Pumpkin Time. My goal was to stitch one pumpkin a day and have it done in a week. I am about half way there and maybe after I watch a few more movies and stitch, I might make some more progress.

I was wondering where to get a frame for it and Lo and Behold....I found one at Walmart for $3.00. How great is that? It is actually meant to hold two 3 1/2 x 5 photos but without the mat it will work perfectly. They had three different ones and I picked the antique looking one. I am going back and pick up some more cause You can never have enough frames,especially the hard to find sizes.

I got really bold and converted my blog over to a three column. I was afraid I would mess up the html, but I did great. It needs some more work but I will have fun doing it. I like the way it looks and I won't have all that scrolling.

I got more stash! Yeah! Look what came in the mail yesterday. I think this is so adorable. I ordered extra 28 ct. Golden Sand Linen so I could have something left over for future stitching.
I am not, let me repeat that, I am not under any circumstances going to start on this until I finish Pumpkin Time.

I also received some cute freebies by Usurla Michael. They are so cute, but probably will be an item for next Halloween. They are stitched with Kreinik Glow -In-The-Dark threads. I have some of these somewhere that I purchased years ago when I was in Idaho. I saw them a while back but I don't remember where, I am going to have to do some organizing. I will proboably be surprised what I find.

I am mailing of a couple exchanges and will show pics as soon as they arrive at their new homes.

Maybe I won't be gone so long this time
May the stitch be with you.
