Busy Hands

It might appear as though I’ve been slacking off but honestly, these hands have been working really hard lately.  Most of the things I’ve been working on are for swap gifts and Christmas presents and I can’t show them here yet because they’re for friends who read my blog.

Lisa from Black Bear Cabin sent me a photo of her rendition of last month’s Halloween Hauntings FFF (First Friday Freebie) stitchery which she completed in time for Halloween.

Awesome job, Lisa and thanks for sharing!  I just ♥ that border fabric!

And while I’m on the FFF (First Friday Freebie) subject, I’d like to remind you that this Friday, November 6th, is the First Friday of the month so please be sure to drop by to see the Freebie I’ve designed for you this month.  Think Christmas and you’ll be on the right track.  *wink*

Happy stitching!

Kaaren ♥

What a cute little wallhanging.
I just found your blog and am enjoying following your stories, pictures etc.
I like how you have your blog laid out with the break...is it a picture that you place there after each paragraph or is it something your blog people offer? I've never seen anyone else do it and love how yours looks.

I saw the stitchery on Lisa's blog. She did a very good job on her project. She is quite the Halloween enthusiast.

You slack off? Hardly!! I know you are always busy creating something wonderful!! It's always a guess though just what medium it will be.

It must be so rewarding to see a finished project from your pattern. I am anxious for you to reveal your next FFF! I just know it is going to be popular!!
