Hello to all!! Just wanted to stop in and show what ive started! I love this time of year, the weather, the colors, the candy!
Pattern chart here (for free): Halloween cupcake
I had to change a few of the colors, due to not having them. I am very slow at cross stitch.. but after finding that deal on the floss the other day, i knew i want to do a cross stitch project immediately!
Since im here, might as well share some patterns im thinking of making, and some cool videos ive ran across lately...
