Exchange received and bit of progress

Last week I received my Autumn Exchange piece from Roberta.  She made the sweetest little scissor pocket!
She didn't give me any details about the design, but I think it a modification of a freebie found at Cross Stitch Happy.  I really love it!  It is already hanging from my stitching lamp, and I've been using the scissors.  Plus, she wrapped it in the fabric in the photograph, so I need to find a nice Halloween-y design for that orange evenweave.....

I've also been inspired to work on the Dark Sorceress a bit (poor DH, Wee Bit is quite enamored with the Sorceress, and is now requesting more "piddy ladies."   As he said, maybe I'll finish his Labyrinth....befor he retires...  LOL).
Most of what I've done recently is the yellow background, and a few lengths of purple floss for her wrap.  Getting close to the bottom!  Then I'll have to go up and finish the top.

Your Dark Sorceress is looking good! I stitched on part of her and the other 2 ladies in the series for a Round Robin. My lady was the Earth Goddess. I really love the colors in this one though.

What a lovely exchange. It's so nice to see all the great Autumnal designs around.
Thank you for the link for the missing chart from JCS. I love bloggers and the internet!
