Happy Hauntings (Shepherd's Bush style)

I guess at the rate I'm going I should wish you all a Happy Halloween as I won't get back here before that happens I'm sure. No pictures right now, just no time, I seem to be a hit and run blogger at the moment.

Right now I am very disenchanted with stitching as a whole and am bored to death with some of the projects and charts I own that are taking up space I would like to use for other things and hope to do something about that very soon. I have way too much here to stitch in several lifetimes and just need to clear out charts, kits (class pieces and things I have kitted up). I have three rooms where major stash deposits can be found and it has to end.

I've been busy with a research and writing project and just don't find the time or interest in surfing the stitch sites, albums, blogs, bulletin boards, shops, etc like I once did. Anytime I find for stitching I spend doing it, not talking about it!!!! I haven't even been to stitch group for over a year and really need to get back with that great bunch of ladies even if they don't stitch my style of designs. A work friend and I will be organizing another stitch group this winter and have several people interested in joining in.

I have enjoyed working on my Happy Haunting piece from the Shepherd's Bush spooky retreat last fall in Utah and it's coming right along. The top hill section is now completed and a few of the bands under it are done and I'll skip to the bottom of the piece shortly to do the other hill. My ornament completion sucks right about now, but oh well. I plan to dig out some of the other kits from the SB retreat and work on those as well.

In a few weeks I'm off to Boston and Salem again and this time I've found the perfect piece to work on during the trip and especially during my stay in Salem.....Salem Witch by the Primitive Needle. The little hat with SALEM and 1692 could not be more perfect.
Stitch on!

I'm totally with you on the stash overload. I need to spend a lot more time stitching and less looking at it and talking about it.

Looking forward to seeing pics of your Happy Haunting...I haven't started that yet, but want to soon. I'm getting close to being done with one of the retreat pieces. I have had a bit of start-itis lately, though.

Love the Salem Witch, BTW :)

I know what you mean Adana! I was thinking about that today. To totally concentrate on the stash I do have I would definitely have to stop going online so much, but then I would definitely miss all the great people I've met. It's a hard decision to come to! That great that you're making progress on HH. It's such a cute design! :)
