Here are my goodies, things I "Had to Have", treasures that "I Couldn't Go Home Without"!
As you can see, I purchased quite a variety of things! I adore little pincushions so the little kitty had to come home with me, and the crow and pumpkin ones on the ceramic insulators too! Another thing I like are old wooden bowls and this one is a great size. Inside it are little handpainted gourds! They will be adorable on my Halloween tree! The little ceramic piece by the kitty pincushion in front is a bell..... when I picked it up I said, "Oh, it's a bell!" And my witty DH said, "Isabelle!" So we named her Isabelle on the spot and of course, I HAD to buy her then!

I have some finishes to share! The first is by Little House Needleworks. It is Winter Sheep, one of the monthly ornaments. He was fun to stitch!
Next is my pumpkin block for an online group I belong to. I chose to stitch a Halloween piece by Pine Mt. I love the kitty's tail! Think I'll stitch this one again for me!
Lastly, the finish I'm most proud of! This is a Blackbird Design called Spring's Messenger. It was the project from Heartland Camp when Alma and Barb were the guest designers in........ 2003! Can you imagine? It's been a UFO all this time and I was determined to finish it this year! I must give credit to my friend Janet who stitched the over 1 purple motif on the right side, by the weeping willow tree. I have an aversion to over 1! She graciously stitched it for me, thanks so much, my dear friend!
