WIP-it Wednesday and some finished objects...

...yeah, yesterday got away from me. It's been happening a lot lately.

I was productive during the long weekend and finished two things.  First, I finished the Ghouls, ghosts, and witches...oh, my! project. I finished all of the stitching Sunday night. On Monday, I pressed the project, added the button, and tucked it into the pillow.

On Saturday, I finished spinning the singles for Goat Rock [Ravelry] and let it rest until Monday, when I chain-plied it. Here it the finished handspun:

I worked on the Tuscon Twilight needlepoint and discovered an error in a previously stitched area. The good news is that it was a pretty small area and involved no metallic threads. The bad news, of course, is that I have to re-do the area. Oh, well!

I'm really looking forward to the next 4's Stitches West time!!  I have a class tomorrow afternoon (Bead Knitting Sampler) followed by the Market Preview. I can't wait!
