I've enjoyed everything your posted Lelia, gorgeous job and each and every item. I really do love the Drawn Thread Pumpkin set. I get my stuff Sunday! I entered 11 things and forgot to look at one item, so I don't know my totals count yet. I snuck a looksie at one of my comment cards that I could get to and I apparently STINK at tension. I got dinged last year and I worked really hard this year to do everything perfectly least on the one I got to look at. They mention "be careful on tension" Now I'm over-thinking every stitch I put in. . . . hints???
