A New Start. . . .

But not the one that I was originally planning.


I have already purchased the brand new pattern, Witches Stitch, Too! by Homespun Elegance, ltd. and am very anxious to get started on it. Unfortunately, I don't have the fabric, nor the overdyed threads that are needed, and am having to order them on-line. So, this little witch will have to wait just a bit before she can make an appearance.

But not wanting my Halloween Stitching mood to go to waste, I sorted through my various other Halloween patterns, to not only see what struck my mood, but mainly, what ones asked for everything that I already had!



Lo and behold, this one from last year, popped up! I have wanted to stitch this one ever since I saw it and bought it, but it always got shoved to the back of the stack for one reason or another. But the time is right, now! I've already started on it. .not enough to post a progress photo, but hopefully there will be one soon! It is When Witches Go Riding, from The Prairie Schooler. Some of you may have already stitched this pattern. I like the side piece too!

The weather has turned hot and sticky here, and the mosquitoes smell fresh blood the minute I set foot outside, so I guess it is time to settle in and stitch something black and orange, and dream of cooler, drier air, crisp nights, crunchy leaves, wood smoke, crisp apples, pumpkins, gourds & Fall colors on the trees. .aaaaahhhhhhhhh. . .

Everyone have a stitchingly happy evening!

I love both designs, especially the Prairie Schooler. When I can afford it, I'll have to get one. Can't wait to see your progress.
