Some Halloween.

I must say that I am obsessed with Halloween stitching. I always have been. So, my Halloween stitching has started. On my last post I did All Hallows Eve by Barbara Ana. It is now framed and waiting for October. You can click on any of the pics for a larger view.
A simple black frame looks good.
I finished The Town of Halloween by Primitive Hare from last years Halloween book. I used one of my favorite fabrics - 32 ct Days Gone Bye and DMC fibers.
I have started Ghoul Tidings to You by PSS from this years Halloween book.
I am having the best time stitching this piece. I did change up the colors some. I did do some other stitching before the Halloween marathon started.
This is first of the new BBD series. I love the bird.
I finished up part two of the LHN mystery except for the brown frame on the left hand side. Just noticed that.
Nataly finished this little guy for me. Isn't he the cutest. Don't remember the name of the pattern but it is a WTN design. I will be gone from the blog for the next couple of weeks. Spending time with relatives on the cape and having a birthday next week. Thanks for visiting and leaving wonderful comments. Until next time ...... Happy Stitching! Deborah

What a ton of beautiful stitching. Love Ms Ana's piece in that frame. She has really blossomed into an A-1 designer.

Have a great trip and birthday celebration!

I am not a Halloween stitcher but I have to say these are very nice designs! You stitched them beautifully. I think my favorite is All Hallows Eve. Oh but the next one is cute too.

All of your stitching looking wonderful. I love them all and I'm not just saying that!! You are making me want to stitch some 'Halloween' and so is this wonderful weather we've been having in VA.

Well, Halloween or not, your stitching streak is remarkable! Congrats on all the accomplishments -- they look marvelous.

Julie M said...

Lots of beautiful stitching here! I'm more of a Halloween chart collector than a stitcher as I never seem to actually stitch much that is Halloween although my intentions are always good! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your vacation!

Catherine said...

I love your All Hallows Eve. Although I am not a fan of Halloween in general I did just complete a Halloween cross stitch myself. You work much faster than I do. Ghoul tidings to you looks like it is going to be interesting also.
