Lockin Two! (Trick or Treat and Indpendence Day)

Greetings, all! Today was another wonderful lock-in, this time with a twin Halloween/Patriotic theme and with a delicious potluck lunch. Some of us came dressed to impress, in costume or sporting special shirts, socks or nails.

There were party bags holding fun treats for all.

The gifts were Halloween-themed.

Indpendence Day finery!

A cute Halloween needlepoint ornament.

By Mill Hill, "Muriel Hocus Pocus Trilogy."

I love this needle minder:

And some new pumpkin designs by Creative Needle Arts.

Everywhere you look are inspirational stitched models.

And projects begging to be started.

More great needle minders.

Just Another Button Company "Alphabet D."

Even more needle minders. I have to get a whale.

More inspiration (Plum Street's "Party Tarts").

A summery needlepoint by Pippin Design Studio.

And last, but definitely not least, Patricia's delicious strawberry and cream cake.
