still "dreaming"

I’ll soon be calling her Witchy Woman (my own name for her) before long, but for now she’s still Dreaming of Halloween by Stacy Nash. She’s turning out quite nicely on the pearl grey linen and I can’t wait to pick out backing fabric for her.




There is something about the 1782 date that I just like…not sure what it is. It looks really cool on the pearl grey. Maybe it’s the pearl grey linen that’s so striking with 1782. Hmmm…I have one DMC 844 row left to cross at the bottom of Witchy Woman’s dress and onto the cloud below her, but HAD to photo her now b/c the sun came out and I HAD to take advantage of that…well…b/c it’s still raining here and the sun hasn’t been present in weeks.

This finally came today…….and I couldn’t be happier (being that I’m the last person on the planet to receive it and mom too) that I have something to read over tonight in bed. Yay!!! I also know whose ornament I'm going to stitch up first. Yep! That be my girl, T! :o)

Lastly, I’m feeling sad that I have to change my summer basket into fall. I love summer way too much to let it go to fall. I do have a Stacy Nash Halloween pillow that I finish-finished earlier this year and I’ll finish my Witchy Woman for it as well soon. So that is a ‘check’ for the basket. I’ll have to come across something else to fit snug. Oh well, plenty of time I suppose. Tonight’s dinner is Tilapia with Rotini pasta with Parmesan sauce ~ Yum! Talk soon!


PS: Mom, thanks for the "doom-and-gloom" comment. I needed the reality check. Love you!

Your witchy woman is looking cool, Julie!

Don't worry you're not the last person to get that magazine. It comes way later here in Canada, probably a month at least. I just got the Halloween one about a couple of weeks ago!

I'm so in love with Stacy Nash. I want to stitch every one of her witches. And just about everything else too.

No JCS subscription for me... I'm still trying to hunt down a copy in a book store.

Looking great, Julie! Your summer basket has some cuties ~ but I'm sure your fall basket will, too! I'm with Missy Ann -- no JCS for me yet...

Love your Witchy Woman! Can't wait to see your fall basket. And you're not the last person to get the JCS issue - I think I am. No one has it around me but fortunately I won it off of M Designs blog. Can't wait to get it in my hands.
