Giveaway, Halloween, Sheepies and a Freebie !!!

Firstly, let me share the news of a blogger's return to blogland - and the subseqent giveaway on her blog - Check out Terri's blog - she's my newest, bestest, blogging buddy.

How ready are you for Christmas???? - Me? - not at all, but I also realise that Halloween is creeping up on us all.. This weekend I've made a start on my Halloween Ornies - followers of my blog will remember my Halloween decorations from previous years.
I started with Long Spider - PIF from another message board - and will be send on another journey in the next week.  Stitched on a scrap of evenweave, using black DMC.  I couldn't but help sing The Who's 'Boris the Spider' all the time while stitching this.

I was also pointed towards The Primitive Hare's freebie Witch Home - something quick to stitch, will be finished up as a key fob or a decoration.  Took less than an hour to stitch, but I'm not in the mood to finish things today.
Today was a day for sheepies.

Some time back, I was asked if I was going to have a farm to hold all my sheepies together.  I thought about it and came up with a simple design.  I intended to have a sheepie stitch-a-long - but until I stitched it, was not going to release the chart to the unsuspecting public.....
I give you all :  bronnyb's Sheepie Farm -  by all means, leave me a message and your email address - and I'll send you a pdf of my design and leave you to stitch it on your own choice of fabric, floss and personalise it.  It's not too hard to fudge up a backstitch alphabet. 

So after a mammoth weekend of stitching - I'm nearly in the mood to start another couple of quick stitchy sayings - but they'd better involve sheep of some type....
