Some New Stash

I know I donot need anymore stash but I just could not resist, the For My Friend and the Just Cross Stitch books came from my very favorite stitch shop Stitchville USA, the Ladies that work there are so sweet and helpful, its hard not to buy something from them.
The other charts came from a shop in Florida, I just had to have them.
I am working on a piece for the up for a challenge,  I am way behind on that job, I hope to have the Santa project finished by the end of the month I am tired of looking at it.
If you get a chance hop on over to  Blacksheeps bit of the web, Edgar has another great looking cake on there it looks so yummy just click on Blacksheeps bit of the Web on my sidebar.
It has been very warm here but I like it like that I can handle super hot weather, maybe the devil is preparing me for my future (just kidding)
I have taken some pictures of my garden, we have been eating the corn it is super sweet, the green peppers are doing better this year then last year, my carrots are maybe ready I cannot tell beacuse the gopher had eatened the tops off, he is now HISTORY yaaaaa.
I have been collecting dill seed I like it on my salads.
Hvae you seen the poor little dog that was attacked by a porcupine poor little thing, I hope he will be o.k.
Well my needle and thread are calling.

My First Halloween Ornament for 2012

This is my first finish from the Just Cross Stitch Halloween Collectors Issue of 2012, I used a 32 count fabric I am not sure what type, I did use a light blueberry color.
I put beads on the eyes of the larger cat only,  I wanted the big cat to stand out more then the cat heads on each side of the ornament, I found the yarn in my stash, the color matches perfectly.
My next project to start this evening is the Town Of Halloween Of the Primitive Hare, I love this pattern the Witch looks so mean and scary.
I hope all is well with you all and the warm weather has not gotten you down, I do love it hot 95 is just right for me, I sit out on the patio and drink my coffee every morning enjoying the birds chirping and the day slowly going by, then into the house to start work at 08:00 til 16:00, sometimes I work on the road and sometimes at home, I am so lucky (I think).
I am in the process of cleaning my craft studio, I have lots of goodies I donot do anymore like scrapbooking, I just cannot seem to get into it I guess stitching is my real love.
Do a lot of sewing and penny rugs for fund raisers, this only takes up a small part of my time, so stitching is it.
I am wondering has anyone ever cought themselves counting the steps you walk or counting as you go up or down the steps?
I am wondering if this is a habit due to stitching, I laugh so often about this, I think its a hoot.
I should get back to work.

Blessings to you all
