Late for a Very Important Date

When I arrived forty minutes late to Old Lady Stitching, the room was full to bursting! I'm pretty sure there was only one regular missing. There were newbies and oldies who we hardly ever see. I had to drag a chair in from the kids' computer lab. And even though there was lots of yakking going on, I got perilously close to finishing Halloweenies. In fact, I got so close that when I came home, I sat down and did it. Not a moment too soon. I've got to get a move on with the rest of the Christmas gifts!
 

Stitched on an unknown piece of 40 count linen. One over two with the called for fibers.
"Halloweenies" by Plum Street Samplers.
I received my first Christmas present today. My nemesis is having surgery and will be away from the library for a month. I may not be so late for the next four weeks...

Congrats on the finish.

I thought about the nemesis the other day, she's been quiet just lately. Or maybe just dull in her bitchiness. She should at least be interesting in her spite!

Love your Halloweenies finish! I know what you mean though. I am still stitching Autumn. I really must move onto Christmas but fear I won't finish this and it will lay abandoned for years.

That's a great finish, congratulations! It's remarkable how much I like this design, despite my not being at all a dog person... It's Paulette's talent, I guess.

I love the 'worshondjies' - sausage dogs! (Wors = sausage).

Yes; where are nemesis' 'comment of the week?' - she was so miserable that she was funny.
