Also, as previously promised, here's a picture of what I like to call TripWitch. They are by Brookes Books. I've been looking at these for ever so long and finally decided to get them. A bit of advice - I didn't buy the Kreinik braid that was called for when I ordered the charts. I thought that they were only going to be used for hi-lites at the end. Well, they're actually used pretty extensively for the cross stitch. So I'd recommend that if you get these, track down the Kreinik too so you can make progress right away. I'm in the situation now where I have to stop and wait; consequently, these won't be done for Halloween THIS year.
Anyway, I wanted to say that I got a pretty good deal on these, ordering them directly from Brooke. The three of them, WITH THE PERF PAPER, come together for $29.99 and that INCLUDES SHIPPING. That's a good deal when they sell from shops for $10 and I'm not sure that includes the paper and know it doesn't include the shipping.
And, she's got some new designs coming out soon that are really cute for Christmas.
Off to meet up with an old friend today and bum around a bit and have lunch. We're meeting at the Crate & Barrel outlet so who knows what kind of trouble I'll get into while I'm gone!
