After IHSW, I'm back in business

I was really disappointed this weekend not being able to finish the border on the Green goddess I went on to other things but this morning has brought a new spool of Kreinik (850) and a spare just in case.  I made that run to my LNS and of course the Kreinik wasn't all I got.  This chart sprang off the rack and I had no choice. 

I've seen the Alessandra Adelaide "Spider Banner" and "Bat Banner" done by my friend Jan and they are amazing, beautifully stitched.  I know Halloween is long gone but there's alway next year, so this will be going on my to-do list.
As promised this is the progress I made on the B&W design before going to bed last night.

 I really enjoyed my first IHSW and knowing that there were lots of stitchers stitching with me was exciting because now I can see all of their progress too. Well I will finish up some of my blog hopping and then I'll go make some more of those wonderful little xxs.
