Chelsea's blanket and a new start

Hi! Four posts from me in one week is a lot. That doesn't happen very often. I did Ariel the Mermaid earlier this year and my sister made it into a blanket for Chelsea. She received it Halloween night and this is a picture of her with it. She looks happy with it. Her parents say she loves it. I also started Great is Thy Faithfulness this week. It will go to one of our Pastors for Pastor's Appreciation next October I hope. If I get all four done and framed by then. I think the first one is done. (Music piece I did earlier this year) . It's going really good, much easier and quicker than I contemplated. The only thing is I'm using Gentle Arts Thread, and doing one complete stitch at a time because of the different shading in the threads but I'm not noticing the different shades like I do in most of their threads. I'm thinking about saving a little time and just stitching the regular way. We'll see. How was Halloween? We didn't get any Trick or Treaters. But I don't think they allow it here. My niece did bring over Johnny and Kate. Johnny was Dak Vader and Katelyn was a Cowgirl. They were so cute. Katelyn looked so pretty in the cowgirl outfit. I heard Trunk or Treat at church was very disappointing. Only 3 cars showed up and they ran out of candy by 7. I feel bad but I think a lot of it was because of the weather conditions. Well.....until next time Happy Stitching!
