A fall explosion

It's August. I don't know what that means to most people but to me it means it's time to kick my Halloween fervor into high gear. I've had some help this year from the very generous Ranae (http://crazyxstitcher.blogspot.com/ --still haven't perfected my hyperlinking), whose blogoversary giveaway I was lucky enough to win a while back. Can you see all this fall goodness?! Ranae included this cute ornie she stitched as well as charts, Halloween fabric, needles, floss, a Mill Hill kit, and handmade scissor fob. Thank you again Ranae, I love everything!



I pulled out my mongo tub of Halloweenie decorations and am ready to get started! I have been finishing up some Halloween/fall smalls of years past which are finally ready for display this year.
Can you tell I'm really really tired of summer?




Finally, I heard from Catherine that she received my giveaway package...
unfortunately of the stitched items in the three packages I sent, this was the only one I remembered to photograph beforehand. You'll have to check out Cindy's and Valerie's blogs to see the rest!
That's all the news that's fit to report. Have a good weekend and thank you for all your past comments!

What fun gifts from Ranae! And I just love your basket of Halloween pillows--especially the black cat with the pumpkin in the front left. Can you tell me what chart that is?

It always amuses me to see how many stitchers absolutely love Halloween! Myself the last thing in the world I would think to stitch is Halloweene stuff!

Great bin o stuff though!
