Minding my own business.....

and I still get into trouble.  Remember me saying that my LNS had gotten in some new fabrics, well I was sitting here finishing up a little cushion and I received an email from Debbie saying she was open until 3 and that she had gotten in the new Halloween ornament issue.  Well that's all it took and off I went.  Here's what I came home with:
First off the magazine and I'm going to do two different designs from the issue:

 The first one is the owl that's on the front cover but as usual I'm changing it.  They have it stitched on black and that's just not me.  We have a gal locally that dies the most beautiful fabrics and I chose one of hers to do him on.  It's a 32ct. opalescent Belfast calls "Clouds and Flamingos".  It's different shades of grey with just a touch of pink to it.  
Next is "Crow on a pumpkin" by Samplers Not Forgotten.  He'll be stitched on 32ct. Thunderstorm with Sampler Threads.
Then there's the JBW Witch and I'm going to stitch her in purple Silk Lame Braid on a hand painted fabric called "Autumn Fairies" by Fabric Flair.
And last but not least are the fabrics I purchased.  They are from top to bottom:
WDW - Gun Metal
WDW - Sea Foam
PTP - Dawn
PTP - Storm
PTP - Echo
PTP - Pansy
PTP - Haunted
I thought that one of these was from R&R but I was wrong.  They are all Picture This Plus and Weeks Dye Works
I was also able to finish the little Homespun Elegance pincushion "Star Light Sampler Pincushion".  I decided not to put any kind of edging around it and leave it plain.  I did add the little brass key charm to it like the pattern called for.  I filled it with ground corncob to give it that primitive touch.  The pattern is in my store if you're interested in stitching it.
Well I had lots and lots of fun today and now to decide what to start first.  I think it's going to be the little Crow on a pumpkin pincushion/ornament.  I do like those colors.
I hope everyone is having a really good 4th of July but from the looks of the sky outside our windows, we're about to have a rainy one.  Just so it stops before the race tonite in Daytona.
Blessings to all, Barbara

I've always loved that star and still don't have the chart. You certainly made a nice haul at the shop!

It's funny how those spur-of-the-moment shopping trips sneak up on a person! :)
You picked some great projects, and all of those fabrics are so pretty.
Have fun with them!
Your little cushion turned out cute.
