Halloween Town is finished

I'm so happy that this one is finished.  I'm hoping to find a frame for it tomorrow. 

This has been a real joy to stitch!  The pattern can be found at Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.  I'm now thinking I might use some parts of the pattern to make some smaller pieces.  I love the bats and the owls and the little trick-or-treater.

I got my new Bosch dishwasher.  I thought my old dishwasher was quiet but this one is absolutely stealthy.  Also, it's  much more high-tech than my old one.  So many settings.  As usual, I'm the only one in the house who takes the time to read and understand the manual.  I think I'll make a power point presentation to teach the family how to use it. 

It's about 90 degrees here today.  This is usually a beautiful summery month for us - but this is a bit ridiculous.  I want to drink hot cider, not iced tea.  My life is so hard.

Your Halloween Town looks wonderful. I too have a Bosch dishwasher and you are right about it being stealthy. The almost silence is wonderful - especially seeing the last one I had, many years ago made it so you couldn't hold a conversation in the kitchen if it was on. :)

It's been so long since I completed a cross-stich project! Looking at your work always makes me want to get mine out of mothballs ---- so many crafts, so little time. Beautiful work!
