Haunted Hideaway on 13th Avenue

Here is my most recent spooky finish. Called 'Haunted Hideaway on 13th Avenue' it is one of last year's Secret Needle Night projects from The Silver Needle. I stitched this as charted. However, I added the ghosts in glow-in-the-dark floss and gave the cat glow-in-the-dark green eyes.

The ghosts are based on the ones from Just Nan's Fraidy Frog which was a chart in last year's Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue.

Mill Hill Treats Collage

Today's progress went well on Mill Hill Treats Collage. I am adding the beads and I did see where I missed some cross stitching on the bottom left corner, so will do that next Sunday. I am hoping to finish this next Sunday.

a little kitty

I haven't done much Halloween stitching lately, but here are a few smalls--a freebie from Primitive Betty, and a BBD stocking from the 'Tis Halloween booklet. Weather is starting to heat up here and I am already wishing it was fall!
P.S. does anyone know if Moon Witch from Primitive Needle is still available as a freebie anywhere? I have been looking but can't find it.

Mill Hill

This is Mill Hill Treats Collage. Most of the cross stitching is done and have to add the beads.

Moon Witch

This is a freebie from the Primitive Needle. I stitched it over-one on Sugar Maple Fabrics Petunia Patch. I didn't have the called for threads, so I picked my own and used Dmc, Dmc glow-in-the-dark, and Needle Necessities floss.

Thanks for letting me join!

Thank you to Karen for letting me join your great SAL. :)
I have one little Halloween stitch going on right now. It's Checkers the Pumpkin. I have been neglecting him and want to get back to him.
Here's what he will look like. So far he's only a few stitches.

From Epic Stitching

I also have two Halloween samplers that I will start at some point... the new Halloween Sampler by Cherished Stitches and Counting Bats from Just Nan.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone is stitching and to joining in!
