More Elfs and a Finish

I finished the embroidery on 2 more of Gail Pan's "Busy Little Elves". These 2 blocks are only 6.5 in and I'm doing them in a green variegated floss. I'm not thrilled with the lack of variegation in this particular DMC floss but I like the colors so I'll continue. I'm sure once all the blocks are done they will look nice, especially since I have some really cute fabric for the borders.

Also, Robin is OBSESSED with Halloween and all the decorations than come with the holiday. She's made her halloweenie list and I am sure she'll make the time to get to all of them. I don't know that I've ever met anyone quite like Robin....I can only imagine what her house looks like at Halloween...... I started this runner in May and finally got the borders on it and ready for quilting....Can't have Robin doing "Halloweenie in August" all by herself now can we? :)

Good idea to have Halloween in August! I have some fall/Halloween fabrics that need made into something. Maybe now would be a good time to get them out and get them put together! :0)

thanks for the name of the store, Peg. I found another store that carries them....Quilters Roost. She sells them for 30.00, which is a lot cheaper than the other store. It is on the way to me, now and I can't wait! Claire
