Halloween Day 5

HI all!!!   I am so happy everyone is stopping by to see what I am stitching.  I think last nights PT conferences wore me out and I am still feeling the effects today.   I came home and feel asleep in my chair again.  I feel like my granny. She always slept in her chair! 

Day 5:  Town of Halloween - JCS Halloween 2012 issue.  28 count tea dyed fabric.
I did dye this fabric by myself and I love how it turned out  This is not a design I would normally choose but I am getting out of my comfort zone!!!  So I decided to stitch it.   It has 2 colors in it!!  Black and DMC 3052 is a dull green nothing to really write home about. 

I am stalking my mail man.  This past weekend I said "me please" to several things on Stash Unload.  I probably should not have said me please on so many pieces but they were so cheap that I just had to say " ME ME ME!!!!!!!"   The send you a paypal invoice, you pay and they send you new treasures!!!!!!

I got my Stitchery magazine in yesterday but I was finally able to look at it tonight.   I found several things I really I circled them, turned down the pages and wrote this note:

"Dear Santa,  I have found some kits I would like for Christmas.  I will leave you cookies and milk"

Then I placed it under DH glasses!!!!   We shall see if he gets the hint!!!!!!!

Until tomorrow!!!

My sweet husband always asks for a Christmas list of patterns I want for Christmas, with online shopping it makes it so easy. I have heard that as we get older it's normal to sleep less at night and take more naps during the day. That's the excuse I use at least for sleeping on our couch.
