Halloween Blog Hop

Well, we are under a SNOW warning here and a lot of places are cancelling or postponing Trick or Treat. But not Jo over at   Serendipitous Stitching   ! She is hosting a Blog Hop where we try to find a phrase and post it back on her site. (Go read her blog post as she explains herself better than I do!)
I was not going to participate as I did not think I had anything to share.
I had already posted my Halloween finishes:
What to share? Then I realized I had purchased TWO new Mill Hill Bead kits! (We will not discuss my obsession with Mill Hill Bead kits.) So why don't you help me decide which one to start for 2020?
 White Pumpkins?

    Or Enchanted Pumpkin?

Oh! Your letter from my blog is

And your next letter will be at:

Good luck and have a piece of candy with me today!

A WIPocalypse Finish!

Thanks to Melissa over at Measi"s Musings , I pushed myself to finish this during the month of October. She suggested taking one stitch on a project every single day and I chose The First Christmas Stocking.
Here is where I started, I think, in October:
 Here is the back of the stocking:
 And now the front:
I will probably try to finish this myself. Gulp!
Tomorrow is Halloween and Jo's bloghop over at Serendipitous Stitching Hope I can figure out what I will post before then!

Art Quilt

I am trying to put a little bit on this daily. It will take me forever to stitch this at the rate I am going, but I do enjoy it. I am close to a finish on my Christmas Stocking, but I don't want to post here until I am done. I may be begging someone to FFO it before Christmas...Any suggestions?

More Little Red Sampler

I find this project very addicting. I take it with me places and stitch on it when I am too tired to stitch on other things. I think it is 36 count. Love seeing it develop. I even have at least one spool to display one of them on.

TUSAL is Totally Useless Stitch A Long. All you need to do is take a photo of your orts and post it on your blog. What are orts? From Usually orts. a scrap or morsel of food left at a meal. We define it as the little bits left over from our stitching.

I am not sure if anyone is hosting this anymore, but I sure enjoy seeing everyone's little bits of thread and fabric...
Here is my jar of orts:
And here is what I believe is the last zinnia of the season:
Have a great weekend!

Red Sampler

I do like working on this. Wish I remembered what the fabric was...
I am stitching it twice as I feel like there is plenty of room on the fabric. I know I have some spools in the basement that I think will make a great display.

Trying to Get this Done!

I have been forcing myself to stitch on this piece as much as possible. I stitch a little in the morning and then again in the evening. I am making progress.
There is a lot of backstitching to be done in these sections, so I am planning on doing a strand of floss every time I sit and stitch.

A New Start

I finally caved and started a new project. It is a red sampler and all I want to stitch.
I am using fabric that the shop put in the kit for me and Silk4u PR 126. I love it!

People's Choice SAL

Well, it is the first Saturday of the month and it is time to post
Jo over at  Serendipitous Stitching host this and this month's topic is cats.
Have you seen the new design by Plum Street Samplers called Clementine?

It looks like our kitty and I may have to stitch this one.
I have a finish to share! And it has a cat in it too...
I had this stitched a bit ago and finally took the time to pop it in the frame. I need to pull another of the kits out to get another one done.
Have a great weekend!
