I had a dream that this particular post would be jam packed with pictures of Halloween pinkeeps, wallhangings, and flatfolds. As of now it remains a dream because I only have 4 pictures to share and two are not Halloween related *sigh*
I went today to buy fabric for some finishes, I matched everything up and piled it up. I took all of my crafty supplies downstairs which was a HUGE hassle, I usually craft in my computer/craft room but Kelly didn't feel like being upstairs so I had to go downstairs *another sigh* btw Joann's did NOT have a big enough selection of fabric as I thought they would so I have to make a trip to The City Quilter for more fabric, no biggie though - I love that store, the people there are so nice!
Well here's my first picture it's of the only finish I managed to get done and took me hmmm 5 hours? I took a break and I had to frog because I sewed the ribbons on too close. I think it looks OK. For some reason my stitching puckers up and I can't find a way to make it un-pucker (is that a word?) I have decided to give it away, Kelly wants me to keep it but I really want to give it to someone. I just have to stitch some "smalls" i.e. a pinkeep and scissor fob because those are the only "smalls" I know how to make LOL. Well without further delay here's Amitie finished into a tray...please let me know what you think!
Next is something I thought I'd show you finished into an ornament but it's not, maybe next week, when I'm off, my dream can come true. I finished the witch design of Just Nan's Crowjackers. It has some mistakes that I'll fix before I make it into an ornament, just the crow's beak and I forgot to backstitch her hate. It was mostly stitched at work and on the train - these are PERFECT for the train! I don't know if I'll stitch the pumpkin or move onto Moonriders.
Oh and this is a picture I've been wanting to share for a while, it's of some if not all of my Halloween finishes since I started stitching. I know at least two are missing. I can't wait to finish some of them to display for Halloween! If not this year then next year right :-)
And last but not least a picture of my new WIP, I figured that for now I'll stitch on something non-Halloween so I won't get bored, although I DOUBT that could ever happen LOL. It's Sheepish Design's "Betsy."
I'm stitching it on the recommended fabric which I think is 35ct (I think) R&R hand-dyed something with DMC floss. I bought the VC silk conversion silks but I don't know if it's because of what I heard about them that I don't like them or if it's because I just really don't like them. My stitches don't lay like Amitie or Fright so who knows. Plus I think I need some plain old DMC in my life right now. With work and my frequent hand washing, my hands are just not silk friendly right now.
Well it's late or early whatever you want to call 4am it's that. I'm going to bed, I'm going to a concert tomorrow (and Saturday!) and would like to be rested for when I go to back to work Thursday. TTFN!
