USEBB Tin Topper Exchange

My Halloween Exchange is now complete and am getting it ready to mail off. I have been so good about limiting the number of exchanges I sign up for, I only have 2 exchanges left (Harvest and Christmas Ornament). Starting in January I will once again be signing up for many exchanges.

I also completed the stitching on one PIF and hope to complete the finishing by the end of the month.

Although I do not have a picture to post, I did complete the first block in the Village of Hawk Run Hollow SAL. The first block is not a favorite of mine so I was glad to complete it. For those that have not yet completed their block you still have 5 days left! Block two will run from Oct 1-31st ~ I got a jump start and have a tiny bit stitched.

Friday I will be heading to Hershey, PA for the cross stitch show (CATS). I attended last year and really enjoyed it. I will also spend a day in Lancaster visiting the many, many fabric shops. My first stop in PA will be at Wawa's for a huge cup of their great coffee...can't wait!

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your many kind words!
Until next time...

Love the Tin Topper.

I am very close to having Block 1 done on VOHRH. That little stream is very busy. Looking forward to #2.

Have fun at CATS. Used to go when there was one about 4 hours away from here. Now they are too far away and only one. That makes it really hard. Love going into Lancaster County, PA. Did that one time when we went to the old Cross Stitch Festival in Valley Forge. Think of me when you are at CATS and find some fabulous fabric in Lancaster Co.

Oh, I envy you going to CATS :) Are you meeting any of the other ladies?
I loved your tin topper exchange and can't wait to see all the others :)

HUGS!!!

That is one lovely tin topper, Marie! Vonna taught you well :o)

The tin topper looks great - I think I have this pattern in my stash, I may have even stitched it once before! Great job!

What is CATS? The tin topper is really pretty. Finally posted my progress on the Village. I started in the middle though. I guess it would be better to just stitch one block at a time, but I don't think I can do that. I just skip around. Didn't you write that the Yankee Stadium was being torned down? When? I am taking my choir to NYC in March and would love to see it. And I know my boys would!

jane said...

OK, it wasn't you talking about Yankee Stadium, it was Kathy. Sorry.

Chelle said...
