Here is my progress of The Riddle. I found the informattion for the stitch along on the Swans website and though to follow the lessions. It was very helpful. Lynn who is an excellent stitcher lead the group last year. You have to be a member to join the group.
While cruising the web I came upon the Dyeing to Stitch website and found this tree with the skirt. I though to use it for my Blackbird Halloween stockings and other halloween ornaments. The tree and skirt came from the same place. They both are very beautiful.
I finished Halloween Spot by the Trilogy. The fabric is what I shall use to finish it, as a small pillow.
I tried my hand at finishing. I love the stockings by Blackbird this is form the April stocking book. The Angel in the picture is our guardian angel. She sit on the coffee table. She is one of the LLADRO pieces save from Katrina.
Last but not least are some of the stockings I have finshed from the Halloweeen stocking book. I have chosen my fabric,now to finish them before Halloween. In the picture are a few of the grouds we purchased for decoration this season.
Thanks for visiting I'm off to increase by stash. The St Charles Market was this weekend gone.

Tree with eggs.
The beautiful blogs on the net can be a bad influence. Look what they have done to me. I have purchase many wonderful charts and now need to convert some to NPI. I have more projects than I will do in two life times. They give me pleasure. Somedays I just love to sit in my stash room and go through all my containers. I have been stitiching since the late seventies.
Thanks for the visit
The Drawn Thread CICI'S SEWING CASKET, Sampler Cove Quaker Casket and Spanish Casket by Wild Hearts Designs. Therefore I splurged and bought the darn thing, now to stich the pieces. Wish me luck I'm gonna need it.
Patti stuff will be in the mail tomorrow or Monday. Had a little sinus problem that last couple of days. Have a wonderful weekend.

I Love these wired mannequins. I use them to hang fobs on. The little one is a new addition.
I have visited many blogs over last few years, and I'm amazed at the very talented people out there. The beautiful things that can be made with needle and thread is astounding. I have made some friend in the blogging community but not half as many as I would like. I would like to thanks all my new friends for visiting and leaving comments.
I have to work for the next three days so my blog time will limited. Everybody have a wonderful few days. Here in Metairie we have had 4 beautiful days. The rain came in this afternoon.
