New Stash

Well over Super Bowl weekend, a LNS had a 20% off the entire store sale. Being that I'm compulsively shopping in a failing attempt to deal with personal issues, I came home with a lot. I already had the Lizzie*Kate Halloween ABCs and had ordered the recommended fabric but hated it. I bought 2 options at the sale

Which is better?

And here is some of the rest from the sale plus a few things from a 123 Stitch order. I also ordered two charts from the sale - Ink Circles Circles des Cercles and Plum Street Samplers Olga - they weren't in stock so I'll still get the 20% off when they come in. There are also purchases from eBay on their way as well. Oops.

Lizzie*Kate Winter ABC with Light Blue 32 ct Linen and mostly recommended thread. The lighter green, lighter blue and darker red were changed slightly from the recommended listing.

Stash from 123 Stitch. Lots of Halloween - I think that Tricky Treat Cats will go on whichever fabric doesn't get chosen for the Lizzie*Kate Halloween ABCs

Lizzie*Kate Halloween ABCs fabric option #1 - "Valor" hand dyed 32 ct linen

Lizzie*Kate Halloween ABCs fabric option #2 - "Haunted" hand dyed 32 ct linen

Ink Circles Metamorphosis - will be done on 40 ct Tarnished Silver Linen with changed threads to move from purple through blue to green instead of rainbow order

WIPocalypse for February

The only project I've worked on has been BATB. I'm almost done with the first quarter of the chart and will need to finish gridding the other sections. Should I back stitch now or wait and do all of it at the end?

Testing ....

Seeing if I can post from my phone. It'll make it easier to update if I can! And trying to figure out posting pics this way. If it attaches, this is my stitching buddy Zoe, whose fur is intricately woven into every project.
