I actually got up really early (correction: I got up really early, like I do every day, EXCEPT Wednesdays, haha!) to watch the blood moon. If I'd bothered to take the tripod, I'm pretty sure my pictures would have been gorgeous (moon pictures are what sold me on my particular P&S camera).
I might have derailed from my WiPs and stitched an adorable mouse, but I quickly got back to it, and worked on Deco Spirits and finished the first block!:
And, I'm almost done with another WiP (hey, just because it's small-ish, doesn't make it any less WiPpy). I need to work on some cards/ornies for the mini-Madness, but I was sick as a dog yesterday and didn't go to work (or therefore stitch on the bus), so I'm already behind on that challenge.
This is Mirabilia's New Year's Fairy - I think she's my favorite of the 5 I've done, by far. So sparkly and I love the colors in her!
And for this month's Topic: Are you a Halloween or Christmas stitcher?
Halloween. By far.
I am, essentially, an atheist (though I don't call myself that - I'm really more of an apathetist), so Christmas has almost no meaning for me other than the stress of having to find gifts for people. I love how festive and fun Halloween is (especially in comparison - no midnight mass for Halloween!), the sense of fantasy and the frivolity of it all, as well. Dracula and ghosts, indeed. I'd have to admit, the traditional Halloween colors and the slightly warmer weather are also awesome over Christmas's chill and sometimes snow.
