Happy Halloween

Where did October go? I have been hesitating to blog as I don't have any pics loaded on my computer but will write anyhow. There have been so many beautiful Halloween cross stitch pics on everyone's blogs. Has anyone seen the new charts by LHN ? I have ordered the Poinsettia House . I just love the colours . My daughter went to school dressed as a present today . That's what she wanted to be. Was able to cover a box in her fav colour wrap (pink!) and wrap it around her in her wheelchair. I put curly ribbon in her pigtails ( which she never wears!) Looked really cute!They were doing all sorts of fun things at her school today. After school we are going to a Halloween tea that my friend is hosting for us and her 2 nieces. Should be fun!
My daughter says it is her last year to trick or treat( boohoo!) we will go out with her little friend and family tomorrow night. Hope to do some stitching today on my Christmas project.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone !

Halloween exchange

My exchange partner for the Prairie Schooler yahoo group , April has now received her ornament so I can show you what it looks like. I really enjoyed stitching this one. Hope to do more in the future.I used "bat" buttons to sew on the hanger for the ornament. I think I would do this one again for our home.
Tomorrow is DH's birthday and we may all take a road trip to Buffalo or Rochester for the night after school. The Dinosaur barbecue is calling him as his restaurant pick for his birthday dinner so that is fine with all of us. It is in Rochester about an hour from Buffalo. About twice a year for DH and DS I make a 4 layer skor bar cake for their birthdays. DD changes her mind every birthday as to what she likes. The skor bar cake is a hit with the boys though . I will enclose a pic once it is assembled . May be a few days as it would be a waste to leave it in the fridge while we are on our little road trip.
I am currently working on a LHN design for a special person for Christmas or maybe their birthday in early 2010 depending on when I get it finished as I am such a slow stitcher! I have to have my gear ready to stitch when I do , readers, magnifying glass , good lighting. Not really the type of thing you can stitch in a car.
Hope everyone is having a great week. thank you for stopping by.

Meeting an idol

When I was younger (well way younger) living in northern Ontario , we didn't get many chances to meet 'STARS' I loved the usuals , David Cassidy , Rick Springfield. My lucky little lady had the chance of a lifetime when she got to pose for a picture a few Sundays ago with this charming young man, Nick Jonas! of the Jonas Bros. She barely had time to smile as there were other young ladies waiting for their photo opp. We had gone to the concert at the end of August in Toronto which was just great but little did we know a month later a dear friend got wind of a photo session for their new movie ' Camp Rock 2' and we got a chance to get up at 5 am and be at the park they were filming at . This pic was taken at 3pm but it was worth waiting for on a beautiful fall day. Thank you Nick Jonas for making my sweet daughter one very happy girl!!
