The final spooky finishes

Hi all

Well I guess it's fitting that today being halloween I post pics of what is no doubt my final spooky finishes for this year! I also managed to finish a wip and an ornament too! So here's some pics of what I have been up to since my last post.
Lizzie Kate Hocus Pocus Stitched with DMC, GAST & WDW on 28ct hand-dyed lugana. Stitching completed October 2010. I had to get a bit creative with this one on the bottom border as I mis-counted.

Just Nan - Horrified Stitched as charted with DMC on 32ct cobblestone linen. Stitching completed October 2010. Will be put in a whimsy frame.

Shepherds Bush - Halloween (from House Haunting leaflet)

Stitched on 32ct sand belfast with DMC & GAST. Ghost button to be added on tombstone row. Stitching completed October 2010. This one was fun to stitch, it was charted for 20ct fabric. I swapped out quite few of the colours on this. The border was supposed to be black and the words orange, I felt it needed some purple!

Jeanette Douglas Designs - Heart Collector

Stitched as charted on 32ct antique white belfast with GAST, WDW & Needle Necessities. Stitching completed October 27 2010. This was my wip from Valentine's Day this year, thought it was about time I finished it!

JBW Designs - French Country Star Stitched with DMC 4210 1x1 28ct ant. white monaco JCS 2010 ornament issue. Stitching completed Oct 2010. This one was fun & quick to stitch! I started it and finished it on the same day, doesn't happen for me much lately!

I'm currently stitching on another of my wips that has been languishing for far too long, Trilogy Family! For such a small piece it sure has been a lengthy process, think I got bogged down on the mountain but as that's now all done the rest should go fairly quickly. Here's a pic of how I left it the last time, no new pic yet as I hoping the next pic will be a finished one!

Well that's enough for me today.

Happy halloween to all

Some more spookiness & a tiny finish

Hi all
Been a while, totally forgot about posting last weekend, darn facebook games! As a consequence not much stitching has been happening but I did manage a couple of small finishes and yesterday took advantage of the long weekend and got some finishing done on a few other pieces.

Here's my latest spooky finish, this was a fun piece to stitch. I started it and finished it the same day. Plan on doing the "finishing"on it today

Lizzie Kate - Eek! scissor fob Stitched as charted on 28ct hand-dyed lugana. Stitching completed September 20, 2010.
Next up is another little finish (which will also be "finished"later today)
Just Nan - Winter Violets Stitched as charted on 32ct opalescent lugana from silkweavers.
Stitching completed September 2010.
Here's the results of my finishing spree:Just Nan - Fraidy Frog pillow ornament,fabric in background is what's on the back.

Blue Ribbon Designs - Perched On A Pumpkin. Felt backed flat ornament

Hillside Samplings - Come In For A Bite - pillow finish
Plum Pudding Needleart 4 Bats & A Cat.
Biscornu finish with pumpkin bell embellishments. For some reason blogger keeps posting this pic sideways. I tried uploading it 3 times but each time was the same result, guess you'll have to turn your head on the side to see it properly :o)
Last but not least, here's Shepherds Bush - Scaredy Sheep Scissor Fob, finished as per kit instructions.
Well that's all for me for today, I'm currently stitching on Lizzie Kate's Hocus Pocus and hopefully it will be done soon. Also want to get some more finishing done as the finished box is getting a bit full! Christmas ornaments might have to be next on the list!
Thanks for looking and happy stitching!
