It's hard to believe October is here already! This past weekend, I went to the Cotton Pickin' Fair in Gay, GA, and it was a lot of fun.(As a side note, Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy were there this spring filming scenes for a new movie set in the prohibition era). I loved seeing everyone's wonderful work and creativity. Of course I bought a few things and stocked up on dip mixes. Unfortunately, hubby doesn't like mayonnaise at all and refuses to eat dips that contain it. I don't care for mayonnaise, but I think the dips taste better with it in them. So we will have to come to some sort of compromise when we make the dips.Yum!

Last week, I finished October Flip-It by Lizzie Kate. I changed most of the colors. Originally, the witch hat was purple, green, and yellow, but I didn't care for the way it looked, and changed the hat to black, a red/purple metallic thread, and orange. I also used much brighter/vibrant orange, purple, and green threads.

I made some more progress on the birth record-a cute little butterfly.

Lastly, here are my stitching goals for the month:
  1. Stitch 2 halloween ornaments (one is almost done)
  2. Stitch 2 more halloween rules
  3. Work on the birth record
  4. Finish the 6 o'clock rock garden in Japanese Garden, hopefully I can get more done!
  5. Start LHN's November
