some finishes and some winners too

Apologies in advance for these horrible pictures. I've been fighting a cold bug for weeks and it finally hit pretty hard the past few days, so everything I try to do just turns out cruddy!

I recently sent a few things to Tobie for finishing, she makes awesome pillows and other things. Got two of them back today...

Here's Jingles & Jack (design by Becky's Boos)...



and the Daisy Sampler (design by Little House Needleworks)....



Also, I recently stitched up this little freebie from Shepherd's Bush, called Halloween Grins...



Stitched once for my hubby, as he picked it out when he was with me at the LNS last fall. The Frankenstein one is his. Then stitched again for my daughters, the grinning kitty. They are in some tuckable hanging banners that Tobie made for me a few years back. Can't remember what they were originally for, but these fit perfectly. My original plan was to make these into little hanging ornaments, but I feel too shaky to even attempt that, so here they go. I may need to spruce up the banners a little...when I feel better...maybe some cute buttons in the corners.

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway. The random generator thing was done and the winners are Tracey for Lot A, and Deborah for Lot B. Congratulations ladies, I will be emailing you soon for your mailing info...or if you see this first, please go ahead and email me with it :)

Back to my Mary sampler...which I've managed to work on in-between my Nyquil shots, lol! She's almost done :)

Happy Fall Y'all! Yippee!!

I see lots of wonderful stitching and finishes! I do hope you feel better soon. I think the first cold/virus of the season always hits hard. I've been fighting a sore throat on/off for 2 weeks! Take care!

Yucky colds - I've avoided having one so far this year, and yes, even as I'm writing this I know I'm tempting fate!

I love the Jingles and Jack finish, the plaid fabric looks really 'Halloween-y'.
