Halloween Anyone?

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments. They mean a lot to me. I see I have some new followers, welcome. I hope I can keep your interest. I wanted cooler weather and we were blessed here in Southern Massachusetts. The weather has been wonderful. It has kept me stitching Halloween designs. First up is Hilda's Alphabet Brew by WTN&T. I used 32 ct cream fabric and will finish it into a pillow. I did buy some of the ticking fabric. Please excuse the wrinkles.
I am currently working on Ghoul by PPS. I really love Paulette's designs.
The fabric is 32 ct. V. Meadow Rue by LSL. The color is darker than the picture shows and I am using the called for NPI's. Isn't the angel just the best? So pretty.
I picked up Autumn on Marigold Lane by Pineberry Lane from the framers today. I am crazy about this finish. I was so excited about how it turned out that I drove to Cheryl's house to show her. It worked out for me because we ended up going to lunch. Great cross stitch, good food, good friends, good day.
The frame is very wide and old looking. It has gold in it and little bits of the orange in it. I was pleased to be able to use this molding because it was discontinued but Mark, my framer, had just enough. Blogger has decided that I have posted enough pictures for today so I will have to show you my wonderful win from Vinniey next time. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Until next time ....... Happy Stitching! Deborah

I love your Hilda finish - I really like the way the witches broom floats into the border - a wonderful finish! Ghoul is looking great and yep, that angle is fabulous.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
