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

Love your fraidy cat! It is so cute. Cannot wait to see your witch. I need to get this issue also. I am so glad that you said something about counting - yea I used to do it a lot and even though I am not stitching I still find myself counting things as I go along. Call me crazy.
Many hugs and kisses, conny

Great Post! I love your first Halloween ornie. I think the Halloween Town design is great too. I can't wait to see your progress on it.
I would be happy if it was 65 every day and in the 30's at night. I love New England Fall and right now I am dreaming of October.
I love Penny Rugs. I always want to stitch up some.
Funny about the counting.
Have a great weekend!

Your Halloween cat is cute. I look forward to the next ornament. Yes, I have a tendency to count things, maybe not everything but a lot.
