Stitch and Bi**h for October

I am late posting but better late then never. Saturday was our monthly S & B and this month we were 4 1/2 stitchers. Tracey joined Jan, Sharliena and her daughter Alexis (sorry if I missed spelled that Sharliena) and me for breakfast, stash shopping and a few hours of stitching, and of course lets not forget the clean bi**hing with a 7 year old in the room. We all went down to In Stitches after breakfast and I now have my first pair of Dinky Dyes scissors in purples and greens.
I worked on my Christmas Quaker Bell pull, page 5 is almost done and page six will finish it up. It is turning out great as I have said before. I was looking at material up at the fabric store the other day to use as my backing material and its going to be a hard choice. I will take the finished Bell pull with me and start cutting down my choices. I want something that's not to busy and that will make the stitching stand out.

Jan and I didn't work on our SAL piece but will be working on it for 2 hours between now and our next get together. I will post after I get my 2 hours done since I have not posted a picture of the piece lately.
Happy Stitching Everyone.

MarchAnn--that Quaker Christmas Bellpull is absolutely gorgeous! Love it! I am doing the Welcome one, but am nowhere NEAR finished as much as you are! Great work! I am in Virginia Beach, so we are sort of neighbors! Hugs!

Your bellpull is looking great! This is one of my WIPs too but I am a long way behind you - just coming to the end of page 1! Looking forward to seeing what backing fabric you choose. I haven't got as far as thinking about that yet!
