Hocus Pocus by Lizzie Kate finished into a pin keep with beads. I can't remember the name of the linen and I used the recommended Week's threads for it. I want to start a pin keep basket of Halloween designs and this would be the first one. I think I may start Eek fob next. I saw that one finished on someone else's blog and thought it was too cute. I also got my fabric for Tombstone Spot's-that may be another new start too.
My sweet little Halloween grungy dolly arrived yesterday, signed and dated
I purchased her thru Trudy at http://lemonpoppyseeds.com/shoppes/psannabellesattic
Please be safe this spooky hallowen night!

I finished Moon Witch by The Primitive Needle today. She is too cute IMHO! I changed her face to WDW Butter bean instead of Belle Soie Shepherd's Pasture and I used WDW Curry instead of Belle Soie Mango for the moon and stars, I also used WDW Mocha for her nose and mouth. Stitch count is 46w x 81h. I stitched her on 30 count Carol's Butter Crunch linen. I am thinking of having her framed.
I am looking forward to getting to
know you all!

There was plenty of stitching time today. I was home all day waiting for the internet guy to come replace our modem.
The upside to the wait is, I finished another Halloween towel. The pattern is from the Lizzie-Kate Flip-Its line, but with modifications to make it fit the towel.
Now I'm all ready for a spook-tacular time in the kitchen.

Here are a couple more pieces I have finished stitcihng. they were both alot of fun to stitch. The first is Quaker Witch Hat from CindyMae Stitching. It is a set of 3 patterns. I have started on the pumpkin and then need to do the bat.
The second piece is from Lizzie Kate and called Quik Stitch Halloween Sampling. I used CC, WDW and GAST to stitch it.
Keep up with all the great halloween stitching. I enjoy seeing everyone's stitching.
Happy Halloween Stitching
Hello everyone. I am so excited to be a part of this community. I love Halloween stitching and do it year round. I collect pumpkins and hope to share and learn much here. I am grateful I am a Spooky SAL.
Today I have posted a piece I stitched back in the 1990's, but just found it sandwiched between some zweigart linen cuts. I do remember it was originally stitched on orange, but I love Chartreuse and changed it....
Great finishes and WIP's everyone! I hope to be on here more often!!!!
I started a huge project yesterday. I also started Lizzie Kate's October Flip It, because I'm gonna need a break from 32-count linen every once in awhile.
Lizzie Kate's Flip It's are a perfect size for Charles Craft Huck Kitchen Towels. Sometimes you need to fudge a little to make them fit nicely, but just a little.
This is the bed end form Open House by the Cross-Eyed Cricket.
Having declared on my blog that during October I was only going to stitch spooky stuff all I can say is roll on Thursday as I really want to get my teeth, or should it be needle? into this one.
