Lost mojo, the Headless Horseman and A Christmas Carol

Hi y'all ...can't believe a week has gone by and I haven't put in one single stitch. Nope not even a little bitty seriously thinking my mojo has hitched a plane ride south in a desperate bid to be rid of me!! ..sniffle...I'm really missing it. I would file a missing persons report with the police alas I don't remember what mojo looks like. In any case I will show you my plans for stitching this fall and into the Christmas season! Gasp!! Yes I said the dreaded C word!!
  Can't believe Halloween is just around the corner. I am in love with the tale of Icobod Crane and the headless horseman. I can't help myself from watching the Disney cartoon every year. It's like a ritual, every Halloween I have to watch Icky and Charlie Brown! Yes my inner child comes out at holidays and occasions and I'm magically transported back to my childhood which is welcome break from being a responsible adult! Unfortunately the spell is soon broken and like Cinderella I'm back in rags with a smashed pumpkin at my feet.

    This is Sleepy Hollow by The Cricket Collection. I'm going to stitch this design on Stephanie Bishops Banshee 18 count Aida. I'm totally in love with this design which makes me wonder why I haven't put any stitches in yet?! The scissors are awesome as well.

Primitive Hares A Christmas Carol

          As you can see I've actually stitched some but haven't picked up this design for quite some time. I'll start A  Christmas Carol right after Halloween is over. I'm determined to finish this before the holidays! These are one of my favorite pairs of scissors. I got them from Anita's Little Stitches. She's fabulous! I highly recommend ordering from her.

         Time to shove off and see if I can spot mojo lurking around...the little creatin might actually come back like the prodical son!! Til next time..happy stitching!
