Saturday Night

 Yes, we are officially addicted to hanging out together and stitching!!!  Saturday night found us at Jayne's house for a night of stitching and laughing....good for what ails ya!!!  Aren't Jayne's decorations darling!!!!  If I saw these in a store I think I would do a backflip! 
 Follow along for some of the sights of the evening........
 Pat bought one of the beautiful stitch wallets from Natalia of Stitch 4 Joy.  These are total works of art in and of themselves!  So gorgeous!
 Here are some of Jayne's finished Halloween pieces.  Totally fab!!!!

 Above is an ornament Jayne is working on.  It is from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornament preview issue from this past summer.
 Linda was kind enough to bring two newly framed  pieces for show and tell!  Wow on both counts!!!
 Below is an amazingly gorgeous and beautiful and intricate piece of stitching that Barb did for Jayne's birthday.  Absolutely stunning!
 Below is an absolute charmer from With Thy Needle and Thread that Barb stitched and finished.  Perfect in every way!
 Below another of Jayne's Halloween ornaments......please note if the designers of Birds of a Feather are reading this (fat chance!); could you please, please, pretty please start designing again and release all of your old charts!!!!!!!!!!! 

 Above is Brenda's new Ott Lite!!!  It is battery operated, very light and I love the design on it!!!
 Carolyn brought some show and tell too!!!!  Isn't this just amazing???  Gorgeous!
 Cathy is working on this BBD piece (it is finished as I type this) for  a class she is going to do where we will finish the box that goes with it.  It is really great; I was not all hepped up about it until I saw the piece in person and now I am HEPPED UP!
 As Halloween draws to a close........hope you had a day full of fun and treats!!!!

Do you have a stitch group every Saturday night? If so, I'm jealous. But seriously, that's great! Stitching with friends is the best. Plus, I love seeing what other people are stitching, so thanks for posting all of the photos.
