A lot of treats!!!

Yesterday I saw that Laura of Passione Ricamo decided to take part in the Silkweaver Showcase.
And I saw a beautiful new kit of Mirabilia. I love it, but I don't know if I buy it seems to be pretty expensive.
Another treat...this means that I purchased a Medium "Treat Bag" from the Spooktacular Sale of Silkweaver. It looks funny! I can't wait for receiving it...

And I couldn't wait for starting my Mill Hill kit for Halloween. I don't think I'll be able to finish it for Halloween but I'm trying... I'm really enjoying it! I hope to finish it...

Here is the kit.

I started stitching with DMC 310 and DMC 550. I'm stitching the central witch.

I stitched a bit my Shepherd's Bush stocking. Not a big progress, but a progress. I stitched two hearts and a part of the apron.

Do you mark or hi-lite your patterns or can you follow them without any markings? Do you make copies to mark up, or do you mark originals?

I've never marked an original pattern and I don't usually use a copy to stitch. Sometimes I used a copy if I wanted to enlarge the pattern but I didn't mark the copy because I always prefer to stitch then to mark the copy. I decided to make a copy for my Once upon a time of Passione Ricamo and I'm marking it because the part of pattern with the roses is very difficult and I prefer to waste time to mark then to make many mistakes...but it's my first marked copy.

Hi Bea - your WIPS look great! The witches is such a cute kit! I ordered from the sale too - but I think my choice may seem boring - I ordered two fat quarters of edinburgh and newcastle (36ct and 40ct) linens instead of the bags with the hand dyeds - LOL! Those were what I needed, boring, huh?? I saw Laura put Dawn in the showcase, but I am very suspicious of another stitcher who also posted the same thing (scroll much further up that page) - she posted it before the chart was even released and it looks just like the one on Laura's site... the same stitcher also added Moon Fairy Spirit - that one looks suspicious to me too.... I could be wrong, but my gut says something is wrong here. I wonder if Laura has noticed it.
