a scarecrow, a cat, and two frogs

I forgot to post earlier that I did finish the scarecrow at Rebecca's a few weeks ago!
Scarecrow ~ The cross stitcher magazine
Finished Oct 16, 2011

I did work on the TW the castle that night, but realized that I had messed up at least one colour.  With all the blending I felt it would be easier to frog it and start over :(
So... I spend 1.5 nights frogging and then restarted.

TW The Castle
As at October 23, 2011

This past saturday, I went on a road trip with a 3 stitching friends.  Around 9:30 Anne P., Beatrice, and Kathy picked me up and we went on our way to Quilts and Critters in Millbrook.  They were having they annual sale, and the 3 of them had never been.  First stop in Millbrook was a little shop called Bear Essentials.  It had losts of interesting things including tea pots, jewellery and art just to name a few.  Kathy pointed this little treasure out and I thought I just had to have it!
My new monthly ort container :)
Lets just hope this little guy keeps the nastly frogs away... I have had enough of them lately!!

On our way back from Millbrook we stopped at a wonderful little shop called Herma's.  Lots and lots of very neat things in there as well as well as a ton of Gourment food.  I walked out of there with some garlic oil, steak seasoning, pepper jelly, and some blackcurrent jam.  After lunch at the Buttermilk we headed to a book store to look at there selection of cross stitch magazines and then on to another fabric store in Cobourg called Stitch Witch.  There I noticed the cutest set of scissor and just had to get them

Speacking of scissors, I got the new ginghers in the mail last week.. I think they are lovely!

Your new ort container looks very much like Kathy's! Let's hope it keeps those pesky frogs away from your stitching. Love your new scissors!

lol love the ortty frog! You just hop from one to the next girl, and what better to hop into that one of TWD's. Gotta be the best the way I see it and I like AAN and IC too but nowhere near TWD.
Be always in stitches.
