Welcome to Cranberry Samplings

I would like to thank everyone who send email and comments for my birthday. Stitchers are the best! I spent some time in Chatham on the Cape with family. It was a beautiful week to be on the Cape. Went to New Hampshire for a day of shopping and great food. Of course, I managed to get some stitching in.
I finished Ghoul Tidings and had it framed. So cute. The frame isn't a shiny as the first picture suggests.
Town of Halloween was framed in a simple black frame.
I did this small piece over one by WTN to fit on a wisk broom. Way to cute. I have a snowman by WTN that will fit on the broom. Nataly did the finishing for me. Thanks, as always!
This is Halloween Screen by the Drawn Thread. Mine is really to small for a candle screen, so I will be doing it as an ornament.
I did stitch something that is fall related. This is Autumn Jumble by DT. This another really small design. Sorry about the wrinkles. I am thinking that it will be framed with a mat or two. Time will tell. I would like to think that my Halloween stitching has come to and end but have you seen the new BBD pieces that are coming out at market? Awesome! I won't be able to pass them up. That's it for now. Thanks for visiting and leaving the best comments. I love them. Until next time .... Happy Stitching! Deborah

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
