While I may occasionally still be able to wear sandals when I head over to the bus stop to pick up C, there is no disguising the fact that Autumn is well and truly here. Leaves are changing, the nights are cool and the sun isn’t up when I get out of bed! I’ve got pumpkins and fall leaves decorating the house, and Halloween stitching under my needle.
I will admit, up front, that both of these WIPs were started this year, so they kind of don’t qualify. But, tomorrow I will post a picture of something does, so that should make up for it, right?
I’m making much slower progress than I would like on Lizzie*Kate’s Very Scary. I was a wee bit disappointed with the third part, and that really threw me off my groove. But, I’m back to working on it, since I would love to be able to get it finished in time to go up with my other Halloween decorations. I had planned to frame it, but now I’m thinking I will make it into a bellpull, since that will be much easier to store.
The part of the design that I’m most disappointed with is the cat with the pumpkin head in the lower right corner. I haven’t stitched it yet because I am thinking about replacing it with something else. I’m leaning towards the lg. black cat or maybe the tombstone or cauldron from Just Another Button Company. I’ll have to see what, if any, I have in my stash.
My other Halloween WIP is Mill Hill’s Lunar Treat. I adore these Mill Hill kits. I’m sure I’ve said that twenty or thirty times by now. This, I’m sure, will be ready to hang on my Halloween tree very soon!
I think we’re racing to the finish on the L*K piece 🙂 Right now you are a bit ahead of me LOL
I do have that particular MH kit finished and on my fridge!
I love those Mill Hill kits too! Nice job on your spooky stitching.
I’m with you – I must admit that the pumpkin mask on the cat creeped me out a little to start with, though I’m liking it better now… I’m trying to decide whether to keep it as it is, or make a plain stitched black cat of it in some way. Your stitching is lovely.
The L*K looks great, I’ve seen several of these around. Looking forward to seeing your substitution.
The Lunar Treat is intriguing too.
gorgeous stitching 😀
