Happy Halloween :) Stitching Update and Contest

Sunday, October 31, 2010.
What a wonderful day this is for me. It is Samhain which is classified as a New Year. I love today as everything seems perfect. I'm not big into the trick or treating. I do love the costumes the kids wear as a lot of them look so cute and there is a lot of thought into them. My daughters were no exception to the rule. First I'll show you a picture of my Biological Daughter. She did all her own make up and that I'm proud of. They were able to wear their costumes to school on Friday. This is what my other Daughter *my daughter's best friend that lives with us* dressed up as. They had a great time. I actually did her make up as it was easier for me. She bought that black stuff that goes around the eyes but my daughter had black eyeshadow so I used that instead and it turned out a lot better.

Now for stitching. I have been working on Monopoly this week again and like I said will continue working on it until I get bored or finish it. Well I finished another square this week. I finished Just visiting/In Jail. I am glad to get that done. I really hated the backstitching on that square but it's done lol. Here is a picture of the square and of it overall. Another one I didn't show you that I stitched a while ago is Oriental Courage. I actually finished the dragon part of the design. Here is where I stopped on it.

Now for the contest. You have until November 16th to enter. I will put until then as I'll add my daughter's Sweet 16 into the draw. She turns 16 on November 15th. So that gives you 2 weeks. You can mention about it on your blog. What I need from you. List One chart, it has to be a current Chart not an out of print chart, on your MUST WANT wishlist and put it in your comment post. You have to include the designer as I need to know who the designer is. And that will be the prize that you win. Plus a few little extras too. Which I'm not going to tell you what that part is lol. I love the element of Surprise :) All you need to do to enter is to be a follower of my blog, You can post on your blog about the contest, and comment on this post. That is all you need to do. Good luck to you all :)

And thank all 107 followers for following my blog :)


I will leave you with a picture from a friends blog on what they did to the pumpkins

You're Monopoly Board's looking lovely, I've seen this completed by one other lass and it looked so amazing when it was finished, so I hope you're enjoying stitching it.

Can I be included in your giveaway (what a lovely additional thing to do for a sweet 16). I'm a HEAD addict, so that's the route I'm going down.
Impossible Love which is a Selena Fenech piece (it's always Selena Fenech of Meredith Dillman in my world).

demeter83 said...

There's a chance I've left this twice, my computer had a weird hiccup.

You're Monopoly Board looks fabulous, a saw a finish of this a little over a year ago from the first ever blog I followed, and it looked amazing, so I hope you're enjoying stitching it.

And I love the pumpkins, brilliant, seen some really funny ones of those.

Please can I enter your giveaway? I'm a HAED addict so I'd go for Impossible Love by Selena Fenech cos it's just beautiful. And I always go for either Selena Fenech of Meredith Dillman

Carolyn in VA said...

Hi Terri! Glad to see you're doing so well up there in the Great Cold North. = )
Your Monopoly is coming along great! Think you'll finish it this year, or will it be a 2011 finish?
Your daughters look like they had fun on Halloween, good to see they are still enjoying it at their ages. My little girls had a blast, dressing up as a candy corn (3yo) and a ghost (6yo). = )
I'll abstain from the giveaway, goodness knows I have enough kitted up for a while, but it's a wonderful surprise someone will be getting! = )
Take care,
Carolyn in VA
