June McKnight's Halloween book has arrived.  The book presents the finished stitch in color on one page & the stitch graph on the opposing page.  She gives thread & ply suggestions.  I've opened the page to Alicia Lace.  June suggests a pale fluorescent metallic thread and the stitch will become ghost flesh.  Isn't ghost flesh an oxymoron?  She gives instructions for stitching a bat, a cat & a spider using a black snap.  There is a pattern for a Pumpkin Patch.  Could be used as a diaper pattern for a background.  There is a pattern for Snake Skin.  She even shows how to make Witch Hair from Memory Wire.  This book is a must for my library!!

Today was a beautiful day in the desert - mid 70's.  We attended the Southwest Art Show which is held on a Polo Field at one of the Valley's two Polo Clubs.  After viewing exhibits from 300 artists, I felt like I did at the end of a long day at TNNA.  We had lunch on the patio at a new Cantina. The setting was magnificient, overlooking three polo fields with the mountains in the background.  A match was in progress on the far field.

I came home to a message from my Granddaughter, Skylyn.  She is the First Grade Student of the Month for the School District.  Way to go Girl!!
