Oh, as usually, I’m late. But, Happy Halloween anyway! We had lovely weather this year, which is truly amazing. But, sadly, we probably had no more than about 50 kids come to our door. Many of our neighbours don’t give out candy, and we are sort of at the end of the street, so I think kids just don’t bother to walk down as far as us.

Argggg! Give me all your candy!

Arrrrrr! Give me all your candy!

The little man had loads of fun, though, walking through the neighbourhood. Between what he collected and what we had left over, I think he has enough candy to last until next Halloween.

Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get my final bit of Halloween stitching done before the big day. I wasn’t able to put the final stitches in until this morning.

Spooky, designed by Lizzie*Kate

It is Spooky, one of the bonus designs included with Lizzie*Kate’s Very Scary mystery sampler from back in 2012. It is stitched on WDW linen with WDW thread in colour kohl. To be honest, I did not enjoy stitching on the fabric. It is very loosely woven, and didn’t have a nice hand.

And that’s it for Halloween. It is time to get back to work on my dad’s stocking and start getting ready for Christmas. ?

    He makes a great pirate! Nice finish but I’m sorry the fabric wasn’t pleasant.

    Wow 50 kids sounds like a lot to me! It’s not really a thing here but those that do it only go to houses where they already know the people. He looks great as a pirate too.
    I liken the WDW thread you used for Spooky, shame about the fabric though.

    Happy Halloween. We don’t get any trick or treaters here unfortunately. Your little guy is adorable or does he prefer to be called Scary haha. Love your Halloween finish. I don’t enjoy linen either.
