"Tricky Treats", TUSAL and dribble....

You can never have enough Halloween so I stitched this the past couple of nights and love this design.

Trilogy "Tricky Treats" kit

I will probably finish as a little ornament if I can find the right fabric. I liked the sentiment so much, I decided to make a little "Tricky Treats" goodie jar using some of my Halloween paper. Take an empty (very clean) nut container, attach some cute Halloween paper, and make a cute little tag. Voila...I have a neat little treat for my desk at work.

I have some more cute Halloween/Autumn paper and can't wait to make some cards, tags and Halloween crackers. Just need to find a quiet afternoon to create!

Lastly, it is the new moon and time to share this month's progress on the TUSAL.

Well....this post is my 100th post....oh how time flies when you are having fun! I have almost been blogging for a year and can't believe all of the wonderful stitchers I have found in cyberspace. I have learned so much looking at other stitchers' blogs and thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments! I do appreciate them and love visiting your blog too!

Off to bed....I had vowed to turn in early tonight but the stitching won out. Early morning tomorrow as we are heading to Clemson for some football....yeah! Hope you have a great stitchy weekend.
