Halloween House update and exchanges

Dragon Dreams Summer Magic

Most of you know I have been stitching on one of my UFOs, Dragon Dreams and I was able to backstitch the first half of the design. It really made it pop!  I was done on Wednesday night and I had started the other half too.  Not much is done but I will be back stitching it today.  Thursday I needed a break so I started on Peppermint Twist by Little House.  The picture above is what I accomplished. I think every Thursday, I will be stitching on a Christmas related piece.
 This is week 2 on my Halloween House SAL. I, also, stitched it on Saturday.   I just didn't want  to put it away for another week yet. You can barely see the ghost by the green roof, except for the tail.  I am not  sure how much I will get done next Friday.  I will be packing to head back home to cold Connecticut.
  
This is my friend's Christmas tree. I love it and it is so pretty.  It is still up, lol.
 A journal and a  day book from Vickie H for the 12 Days of Christmas exchange. The  Jane Austen daybook came from England and so far I am writing in it everyday.
 More gifts:  a scissors fob with a crown at the end, metallic threads, 3 pieces of material: purple,  green and cream with gold speckles, and a few ornament kits with the threads,patterns from JCS 2011 magazine and material.

The last two days I had opened 2 kits: Lizzie Kate Boxer Summer and Sunset Bag Ladies.  It is a kitty pattern and I love it.  Not sure when I will get to it.   The last pictures are the pets, Zoey and Sammy.

Isn't she a little princess sleeping on the pillow, which is  the perfect size for her.

Sammy


Many hugs,
Vicky

Sammy looks a lot like Yes Dear. What a cutie!! (Of COURSE I'm not prejudiced.) And Zoe is a cutie too. Your stitching looks great. Love the little dragon. And Bag Ladies is adorable. I love it. Keep up the good work, Vicky.

Nice progress on your stitching, Vicky. I agree with you about the backstitching. It does make things pop right out. ☺

Lots of nice goodies. Enjoy!
