HoE Halloween Exchange

I received word that my HoE Halloween Exchange has been received - there are nice pictures on the HoE blog; but I thought I would post some pics here, too. I stitched the Sampler Girl's freebie Quaker boo using HDF premium silk and scrap linen. I made it into a needlroll - it had some improvisation because my scrap of linen wasn't large enough to do a proper French hem.
Anyway, I'm glad my partner likes it.
I'm still not stitching very much - I spend all my time on the sidelines of the soccer field, cheering my 13 yr old DS (and loving every minute of it!)
Happy stitching! Margaret

Neighborhood RR - Robyn's square

This is the square I stitched for Robyn's RR - her theme was a seaside neighborhood. I had some misgivings about my choice, but it turned out very cute, if you can imagine it without the wrinkles!

I haven't stitched much lately - the only other thing I've done is a Halloween exchange for HoE - I mailed it a week ago, and it hasn't arrived yet - so I'm sitting on pins and needles. It did have a long way to go, so there probably is no reason to worry. However, I know worrying works because most of what I worry about never happens - LOL

Happy stitching! Margaret
