A Little Voodoo

Christmas in July? No way! It is time for Halloween stitching! (Oops! This is also my Theme-a-licious post for this month!)

Voodoo Girl, from Haberdashery Designs

Haberdashery Designs Voodoo Girl has been on my to do list for ages. (I finished her companion, Voodoo Boy, aka Bob, back in 2008, see below.) She is stitched on a random piece of fabric from Enchanting Lair (possibly Marquis or a one-of-a-kind), using glow-in-the-dark Kreinik braid and plain old black floss. Instead of my regular DMC, I actually used J & P Coats for the black, since I bought a whole pile of skeins of black for a very, very good price several years ago.

I hope to have her sewn up shortly, and I will make braid from the black floss and possibly the purple glow-in-the-dark braid. Pictures, of course, when it is done.

And, here is her companion, who has waited patiently for her for many years:

And one last Halloween-y thing to share. I am stitching the Lizzie*Kate Halloween mystery. I haven’t got much done yet, but I’m so pleased with the part of the design that has been revealed so far.

Oh, mysterious!

    Those voodoo dolls are cute in an odd, creepy kinda way! Congrats on the finish and I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the L*K mystery!

    She looks great on that fabric. I did Voodoo Boy some years ago as well. You’ve inspired me to think about getting him a girlfriend!

    Oooh, I love the voodoo girl and boy, and I definitely have to stitch them too – well done on yours! And I’m waiting for the LK Mystery to reach me – very pretty start.

  4. Aha, you caught on to my thinly-veiled attempt at Christmas in July without calling it Christmas in July, LOL! Congrats on the finish…I LOVE that fabric color…fantastic!

    Loving it all 🙂 I actually did the opposite on the Lizzie*Kate sampler. Just need to do the satin stitch border and will share the finished piece hopefully this weekend. LOVE it!
