Won't Be Done By Halloween

It is progressing nicely but, I'm afraid I won't have it finished by Halloween.  
No way would I have it framed.  
The ghosts are done and am now working on the bat.  
It has been a lot of fun.  
Starting to think about what I'm going to take on stitching retreat in two weeks. 
Yippee!  Two weeks. 
Will start going through stuff.  
Maybe I will do something Christmas-y

Figured I would also include Henry Ford.  
I try to take pictures of Buster but he either won't look, will get up and walk away or just turn his back.  
Kind of a snotty little shih tzu.  

Hope you have been having a wonderful week. 
Are you tired of the campaign yet?  
I am, ready for it to be done. 
I will vote.  
All this crap isn't going to discourage me. 

Keep on Stitching.

Halloween Stitch Update.

Just a quick post to show the progress on Tonight is Halloween.  
It is slow progress since I had to knit another clog I made last winter/spring.  
Henry Ford chewed a chunk out of it and it couldn't be repaired.  
I had enough yarn left so I knitted another one.
It just has to be felted.  
Plan on starting some Christmas presents soon but, won't be able to post.  
Surprise you know!

Have a wonderful week.

Henry Ford Update

By popular demand and lots of questions, I figured it was just easier to post a blog response.  
He had thirteen quills removed from the side of his mouth and inside his mouth.  
Quills will work their way in deeper but, we did a good job keeping him calm until the vet could remove them all.  
They had to knock him out. 
He came home stoned and whining.  
He wasn't in any pain since they dosed him up.  
After Buster had his dental work done, the vet told us that some dogs whine when coming off anesthesia.  That didn't happen to Buster cuz that Shih Tzu is as tough as nails.  
Henry whined and was confused until about 930.  
He settled down finally and slept until this morning.  
He's as if nothing happened, eating,drinking, chewing on Buster and chunks of wood.  
Henry is back to his charming, sassy self!

Have a great week!

Henry Ford 0 Porcupine 1

We have a very unhappy Henry Ford tonight.  
It was a good day hunting.  
Two good flushes and then the boys got a grouse.
Called the Vet and they went and had to quills pulled out under anesthesia since most of them were in his mouth.  
13 quills and $460 later, we have a dog that is still a hot mess.  
He just wants to be outside but, it is too cold and he needs to be kept warm.  
He's walking sideways and crying.  
He will be fine but, may never look at a porcupine the same every again.  

The craft sale didn't go so well.  I didn't sell any of my pinkeeps there.  
Katy didn't have a very good sale either.  
That's okay, I was at a class for work.  

I have an update on Tonight is Halloween.  
 Working on my first tomb stone.  
This is a fun stitch!!
Hope your weekend has been better than Henry's.  
I think he may have finally settle down.  

Have a wonderful week..

Halloween Night

I finished my five pinkeeps.  
I took them to my stitching group last night and my friend Patty bought one so I can't show it to you.  
Not a great picture but they are nearly ready to go.  
I just need to put a price tag on them.  
They are super stuffed with crushed walnut shells.  
 I am cruising on Tonight is Halloween.
I am nearly done with the lettering.  
I have a couple of little bats stitched too.  
I am really liking the splochy fabric.  
It was a busy day off from work.  
Had a Mass this morning for my Mom.
Went to Walmart after because early is the best time to go there.  
Had a pile of errands to run and we got the house cleaned so it doesn't have to be done this weekend.
I also got tomorrows dinner ready....White Chile....yum!!!

Talked to my sister in Boca Raton and the hurricane isn't too bad there.  
Prayers go out to everyone in the path of the Hurricane.  
The crazy thing about it is it might swoop around and hit them again.  

Hope you have been having a good week.  
Got to get back to ABC's Thursday night.  
Good to stitch by.

Halloween Stitching

I finished Midnight Jack from the latest Issue of Prim Stitching and Punch Needle.  
I changed it to all overdyes:  Black Crow, Loden and Fragrant Cloves.  
I did order the charms used in the pattern from Fallen Angel Charms.  
I was at the Stitching Bee last Saturday and got Kathy Barricks...
 I saw this on her blog and I love tombstones on patterns along with black pumpkins.  
I tried to get the fabric when I got the pattern but, she didn't have any.  
I am doing it on 40 ct as the pattern but, I did some dying on the Explaire that I had.  
The spray bottle left it a little splonchy but, I kind of like it.  
 It was an incredible busy week, 
Monday:  Bob's Aunt's funeral
Tuesday:  4 hour meeting after work
Wednesday:  normal
Thursday:  Took MIL it an eye appt. in Green Bay
She has wet Macular Degeneration and had an injection in her eye. OUCH!
The eye is numbed but, still OUCH!!

Should be a calmer week but, I have a continuing ed program next Saturday.  
Have a great week!
Keep on Stitching!!
