Halloween pics, a gift, a finish, and an ebay win!

Well, back to reality!  Mom and Dad's visit was great but much too short!!  We had a great time as always!  I did happen to get a little stitching time in the evenings as we watched movies, and finished my L*K flip-it!   (***OOPS!*** Not quite finished- realized last night I forgot the border.  Am going to LQS to get some WDW Snowflake today! LOL)

Mom went with me to take the kids trick-or treating-And on Friday I received this beautiful giftie for my birthday from Sharlotte!

 A great weekend!
And today I won a pattern on ebay that I've been wanting- the Celtic Band Sampler by Homespun Samplar. I love this design! I meant to get a whole lot of pics with my parents this weekend, but again I failed.  I guess it's cause we just hung around town and did some shopping and went to Starbucks mostly! We did go to Raleigh for a bit on Sunday, but just to church and to grab a bite.. went on a disappointing trip to find a LNS that I had heard of - but evidently I had heard of it a lonnnnng time ago cause it was no longer there, and the neighbor had never remembered and LNS being there. Any of my NC blogging friends remember You Count w/ Freda in Cary?  I had never been there- I guess I waited too long to check it out! Oh well!
I guess I better go get some stitching done!

Glad you had a great visit with the paretnal units...and that they were able to share in the trick or treating with the wee ones! And great costumes, too!

Love the flip-it...turned out great...and your ebay, that's a beauty!

Good luck with the LNS hunt...they seem to be disappearing very sad! Until later...
