Stitching Updates

Update on One of my January Challenge Projects - Town of Halloween.  this is about 60% completed now, and it won't be hard to have this finished in time for Halloween.  I visited Salem Mass while I was on Vacation last week  - thought it was a good week to stitch some witches..

I have finished the roof. This SAL group is Growing every week. Please check out two wonderful blogs, Debbie's and Linda's to find out all about this SAL and see all the updates.
Bothy Threads Cut Thru - Monday Sal. 
It just so happens, Debbie is having a give away - she is giving away a chart Let's Do Coffee.
I have this chart already, it is one of my WIPS from the Crazy January Challenge.  This is a wonderful chart and I have not finished it yet, but it does stitch up quick.  I did visit two Needlework Shops on my Vacation. 

Bush Mountain Stitchery 87 W. Brookfield Rd, North Brookfield, MA 01535 774-449-8090 or 877- 987-5464

And Battenkill Stitchery in Arlington Vermont.  Battenkill does not have a website.  They were very different, but both were wonderful.  The shop owners were there, and they are wonderful women.  I will compose a post soon with more details, and a couple of pictures.
