"Patchwork Pink Shoe" -- June 27, 2009

Several years ago, I signed up for the “Halloween Cookie Club” which was offered by Fireside Stitchery. The canvases are Halloween hats and shoes and were designed by “A Collection of Designs”. You can see the Halloween ornaments that they currently have in their Trick or Treat Halloween Ornaments collection.

Okay, okay, I’ll admit that I signed up for the class about four years ago! LOL!

I finished two of the cookie ornaments that year which I can’t share with you right now as they are packed away until next fall. They were a lot of fun to stitch and I actually sent them off to be finished into ornaments!

I started working on the next ornament in the series, but I then put it away when I became busy with family life. :-)

That’s usually what happens when I don’t finish a project. We get busy, one if not all of us get sick, or the project(s) get packed up as I need to clean up for a family event. Once a project is packed up it may not get pulled back out right away and some times it doesn’t get pulled out for quite a long while!

While organizing my stash, I found my “Patchwork Pink Shoe” and I decided that I wanted to finish it this year. So it went back on the table. Once I make some progress, I’ll share a new picture with everyone.

Hi, Cyn! I love the little shoe. Have some of those stashed away...one day! Anyway, thanks for your recent comment on my Mary Wigham conversion to AVAS. I will post it on the site, if you think it's worth it. I intend to add other colors as well, but I can at least give the actual conversion list. Love your blog. As a needlepointer and cross stitcher, your blog is a treat to me. Hugs!
