My first finish of 2014 - this is for a halloween exchange

 This is my first finish of 2014.  This is
for a halloween exchange.  This piece has
a very long trip to make.  The pattern was in
the Just Cross stitch 2011 halloween issue.
How cute is frankenstein.  I had to take him
out and put him in the picture.  I purchased
him in Binghamton, NY years ago.  I was
visiting my older sister and he was 
purchased in one of the shops.  I look
forward to displaying him each year.  I
am not a huge halloween person but he
is something i look forward to seeing each
year in the house.

I went to anthropoligie today and
what a deal.  They had these marked 
down but then they gave an extra 50%
off.  I wanted to purchase the ceramic
fruit basket for a long time but i
wasnt going to pay full price.   Orig.
20.00 i only paid 7.00.  The colorful
bowl was only 3.00.  Dont you just
love a deal. Here is the best part of
my day.  I was told about a stitching
group that meets at panera each 
saturday.  I went today and met a
bunch of great women.  They 
made me feel welcome.  I look 
forward to getting to know them.
Aren't stitchers just the nicest
people?  First goal of the year
