Finally some stitching (picture intensive)

Hi all!

I hope everyone had a nice October including a wonderful Halloween.  It was a little bittersweet for me this year.  My older two feel like they are too old to Trick-or-Treat, so it was just the little one, and she went with friends.  

Even though I'm busy with school, I'm only taking one class, so I've actually been able to find some time to stitch...and stitch I've done.  It has been so much fun!!!  These are just some of the pictures that I've taken recently.  However, I should take some pictures of my HAED progress pictures soon.
 This 1st picture is of the Lizzie Kate Flora McSample's 2013 Stockings.  I'm having a great time with this one.  The brown on the bow and wording kind of disturbed me at first, so I changed the color a little.  It's a little better now.
This next one is the lovely Plum Street Samplers SAL.  I'm having a wonderful time with this.  I've actually been able to keep up with it too.  I've changed some of the colors here and there, but I like the way it's turning out for now.  
This is the LHN Ornament from the JCS 2013 Ornie edition.
Another ornament progress picture.  This is one from TraLaLa (I think).  The border is a little  (who am I kidding) a lot time consuming and boring.  So I work on the border a little bit a couple of times a week.  It was a UFO from a couple of years ago that I pulled out again.  

Of course, these last 3 are from the CCN Santa's Village.  I love this!!!  It's so cheery!  I am a little behind, but not doing too bad.  I think I'm going to start the next one tonight.  

I can't wait till the next CCN Annual piece comes out this month.  I just LOVE the first one, and am really looking forward to starting it.

Only about 2 more weeks of work, and then I'm off from Thanksgiving until the weekend before Christmas.  I'm so looking forward to it.  I can't wait till I can get my Christmas decorations up.

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Thanks for visiting!

Oh my, such a lot of great stitching projects. And I think you are right - the Christmas tree looks like a Tralala design. She often has this kind of border, lol.
