Halloween Treat

I finished this Lizzie Kate Merry Christmas banner a few days ago. Around the same time a customer and friend Janice came to the shop to show me her banner...finish finished. Mine of course was just stitched ... but look at how Janice finish finished it for me!!! I know if I waited to get moving and either (a) do it myself ... yeah right! or (b) get someone else to do it...it would be next Christmas before it saw the light of day. As it turned out Janice took it on Wednesday and brought it back in all its lovely finishedness today! On Wednesday when Janice came by she brought me this little Halloween tree. It is a gift from Trish ,who I have not met in person...but who is obviously a lovely and generous person! She sent the tree to Janice to give to me. So first thing this morning I headed over to Belleville to G & G and bought a couple of packages of Halloween buttons which I threaded up and installed on the tree. Isn't it great. The purple sparkles!!! Thank you so much Trish!!! and Janice the messenger!
I managed to finish page 7 of Jeannette Douglas's My Stitching album and I think this one, Rhodes Rhapsody...is my favourite so far. I got a little more adventurous with my colour choices and what a shame that I waited till the second last page to get colourful! Bright colours are fun!

Ann,
Your photos are lovely and you have been really busy. I finished Page 5 but still need to put on the words. As you have seen I have been stitching other things.

Your Christmas banner looks awesome - great stitching and finishing by both of you :) That little tree with the Halloween buttons is really cute too! As for the JD design, this is probably one of my favourite pages so far too - love the colour choices ... but I'm a real sucker for bright colours :D
