Somethings old and somethings new

I have been stitching and stitching and I have two new starts and an old wip to share. I also have a couple of new to me ideas. First I want to share an old wip this is just about finished. It is my "Dollar Bill" it's a freebie from Gloria & Pat, Inc., there is about six inches of back stitching left and it will be a done deal.

I think this is so cute I may add at the bottom "First Dollar I Ever Made" and put it in a frame.
The next piece I want to show is "Wicked Witch" by La-D-Da, stitched on tea-dyed even weave.
I wanted to finish this one instead of it becoming a wip but I ran out of  #844(which is the border) and Michaels didn't have it on Saturday. So I had to put it away, but luckily I have found #844 at Wal-mart (go figure) they usually don't have much. When I feel like going back to it, it will be a done deal too. Up next is "Witch Boot" a little freebie from SullivansUSA (Sullivans Embroidery floss).
I just love the bright Halloween colors in this one, I'm stitching this one with a combination of Sullivans flosses and DMC. You can google a conversion chart for the DMC flosses. The piece I am currently working on is "Frankie the Thinker" from Glendon Place and I am stitching him on 28ct PTP called Hauned.
Remember back a few post I told you about finding out about these perfect grime guards (steering wheel cover from the dollar store) for the 8 inch q-snap for only $1.
Well I found the perfect grime guard for the 6 inch q-snap.
These are headbands from Michaels for $1.50 each. I do love a bargain. One last thing, I have joined the needle-minder craze, there are definitely some beautiful ones out there but way too expensive for my taste. So I bought myself a tube of E6000 industrial strength adhesive and it was on. Here are the ones not in use that I'm storing on my metal chart board.
Well it's time for me to get back to making some wonderful little xxs. Thanks for visiting!

I must have announce my give-away while no one was home! In my last post I told of a couple of beautiful charts I was giving away and nobody asked to be part of the drawing.

 So there was no need to announce a winner yesterday.
