Hocus Pocus Pin Keep

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.

Happy Halloween!!!!!

"Dancing on the Moon" by Birds of a Feather
Stitched on 32 ct. sparrow w/WDW
"Boo name tag" by Bent Creek /finished as a flat fold

My sweet little Halloween grungy dolly arrived yesterday, signed and dated

I purchased her thru Trudy at

Please be safe this spooky hallowen night!

Pumpkin Ghost Block

Pumpkin Ghost Block by San Man Designs
I loved stitching this. It's on Monaco fabric that I dyed. I used Dmc glow-in-the-dark floss for the ghost and bat's eyes. I plan on making it into a small pillow.

Bountiful Kitties ...

I am currently working on this cross stitch kit from Mill Hill Buttons and Beads collection. Its not really a Halloween design, but I hope to finish it before Halloween... I havnt started adding the beads yet, I am a bit further on from the photo shown and will show more soon.

I love the Fall design, Pumpkin, Crows, and Kitties... Great to stitch at this time of year, I am stitching it on 16 count Aida instead of the perforated paper that came with the kit...

Wishing you all a happy Autumn and Stitching...

Moon Witch Finish

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.

newbie, sort of

Hi everyone. I have been feeling guilty because I begged for admittance to this SAL a few months ago and haven't contributed a thing, so here is my latest Halloween finish, Scared Silly by Birds of a Feather, along with a few others I have done over the past several weeks. More on my blog if you would like to look.

I am a married mom of two, have been cross-stitching for about 25 years and am an all-around Halloween fanatic!

I am looking forward to getting to
know you all!

A Spook-tacular Towel

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.
