I'm back from my last weekend in OCMD for a bit and while we had a smaller group than usual, it was very relaxing and enjoyable. Here is the group of stitchers hanging in the Lankford Hotel lobby. Sara and Kathy would sneak over when they could but were working net door in Salty Yarns. Thanks to all for a wonderful weekend!
I stitched on Miles and Priscilla exclusively and got a lot accomplished on them.

My roomie, Debbie, always decorates our apartment for Halloween and here is a photo of our room aglow!
And, speaking of Debbie, we celebrate her birthday this weekend. This is the gift I made her ... a set of Halloween themed project bags. The outer fabric of the large one is flannel and very soft. I used the lining of that one to make a coordinating tool bag. The zipper pull on the large bag was a small kit from Prairie Moon called Halloween Key Chain. It's on black perforated paper...kind of a big zipper pull, but cute!!! The design on the smaller bag is the pumpkin from Time for Halloween by With Thy Needle and Thread.
And, speaking of project bags... I see another one in my future. I stumbled across this fun fabric with a national parks theme..isn't it great??? The smaller motifs are symbols on signs you'd see in the parks like picnic area, hiking trail, food, camping, etc..
Well, that's it for now. I hope you all have a fun Halloween...I'm going to dress as Tonks from Harry Potter but am debating if I want to color my hair...her hair changes color all the time depending on her mood. I'm not sure how easy it will be to wash out and I have to leave for a day trip very early the next morning. Any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
