As this is a stitching blog, I'll talk about stitching. I didn't get too much done this week, but some progress is better than no progress.
I did finish part 1 of iStitch's SAL:

I did a little more stashing this week. A.C. Moore has DMC on sale for 5/$1.00! And if that wasn't wonderful enough, a coupon for 30% off total purchase popped up in my email Thursday, so that works out to about $.14 per skein! I finished kitting up Cricket Collection's Three Gables, Elegant Pumpkins from the latest Just Cross Stitch, Calling Birds from the Christmas Preview and By the Full Moon from last year's Halloween issue.
I had a weird cut (8"X26") of PTP's Haunted in my stash and it's the perfect color for By the Full Moon. I just have to decide which end to cut. One end is more dark green/grey/purple with the other having more purples and some white. I'm leaning towards the purple end, but may do both and then I'll have one to give to DSIL.
The difference shows up much better in this picture, but the colors are more true in the previous one.
And just to prove that they're not always brats of course they did start fighting just after the picture was taken - someone must have breathed wrong:
