Thx Beth!
My GF Beth, decided punchneedle wasn't really her thing
... she gave me this Halloween kit w/design on fabric, buttons, etc.

Of course, she changed her mind about punchneedle
after she launched her
Sweetheart Bunny,
(the Workbasket) project ---
I asked if she wanted the Halloween stuff back!!!
She said "no" and

I am looking forward to starting these Halloween punchneedle designs
The designs are already printed on the fabric
and the buttons & fibers are ready to go!Halloween Hang-Ups

Saturday, stopped at House of Stitches & picked up:
Isn't this a fun pattern?
(Mel & Sue thought so, too)
I need to check my fibers
and figure out what I have & what I need!

Do you see the shuttle?
It is for tatting lessons
Oct 22nd at 1pm

Maybe with some hands-on
help, I can figure out
the tatting basics at last!

Martha Stewart items

I noticed a lot of Martha Stewart branditems in the sale aisle
at WalMart

I was able to pick up a few thing
at greatly reduced prices

I really do like the scissors
I think they are GREAT

I have not tried the
different inks --
aren't they pretty?

Art Bins on SALE at JoAnn Fabrics

Not sure how good a deal it is; however, I think they are great.
I like them as they slide right under the wardrobe
& keep everything safe from the CATS.
These Art Bin Super Satchels at JoAnn Fabrics -- are On Sale for $8.99/each (Regular Price $14.99).
They have all colors (neon green, pink, blue, orange .... regular teal, green, yellow, blue, lavender, green) - some with glitter in the plastic.

I suppose after the sale days are over, you could use a coupon for them!
