Snowflakes and Other Effects

This is how to add falling leaves, snowflakes, etc. to your blog.  First, add an HTML widget to your layout.  Copy/paste the codes from this site into the open widget window, making sure you switch to HTML before you paste the code into the box.  Save.   The effect will last until you remove the widget or erase the code in the box.

Ghost Stitcher Client ID #9865, Project 50008

Did you use Ghost Stitchers, the update New York stitching service that closed unexpectedly in the late summer of 2013 when the co-owner died?   I wrote about this last year and this weekend one of the ghost stitchers turned up with a project they would like to return to their owner.
http://chillyhollownp.blogspot.com/2013/10/fyi-ghost-stitchers-is-no-more.html

It is a counted cross stitch project from Sunset.  The client id is 9865 and the project number is 50008.  If this is yours, let me know by commenting here or email me at chillyhollow at hot mail dot com.  The ghost stitcher would like to return the project but they don't know who owns it.

Spread the word, ok?  Thanks

For that Special Halloween Scissors Case

Just in time for Halloween We of the Needle has special scissors cases. Or should I say scissors caskets? LOL

I have no idea of the price or how sturdy these little boxes are, but here is their website, in case you need some of their Halloween boxes for decorating or tool storage.  I know Halloween isn't everyone's favorite holiday but if you love it, perhaps a new scissors case or tiny Halloween box for your rots from We of the Needle is just right for you.

Beautiful Wooden Stands

I just stumbled across this website of a small company that makes beautiful wooden needlepoint table and floor frames. I know nothing about Needlepoint Stands as a company but the frames are beautiful.
