Spent my GC and New Start

I had fun shopping with my gift certificate I won at PALs Retreat. Here is what I got...
I got the Christmas and Halloween issues of the Just Cross Stitch Magazine. I saw them at PALs and knew I would have to get them. They have a lot of great things in them. Then I saw the new Dec issue was on there too and look at the pattern for the stocking. Of course I need that one. I think I'm going to have to get a subscription to this magazine again.
 
 
I also got 3 new Imaginating designs....Let's Deck the Halls, Let's Be Proud, and Let's Get Spooky. I just love working on these patterns. I also ordered the white evenweave for them.

Yesterday I finally made time to start the Foxwood Crossing Beading Cardinals. Here is what they will look like...
I got all the white stitched and the green beads added...
I have two more bead colors to add. These are very limited edition. She said she only had a few left and won't be getting more. I got a set to do for us and a set to give to family. They are FAST. Just need to make myself get off this computer and get to work haha.
