Stitch-a-thon for 10-31-08
found at Let's Stitch.

We will stitch from 6pm-midnight (according to your time zone). Please let me know if you are joining the SAT and don't forget to let us know what project you will be working on and to post a before pic before 6pm on Friday night and an after pic once the SAT is over :)

Plan to be stitcing the christmas trees in the latest issue of Cross Stitch Crazy. There are about 12 of them. I'm going to see how many I can get done in that time. There are several that can be done rather quickly. One is just the same color blue.

Here is what I got done during the time, since all the trick or treaters were coming by.
