Halloween Cross Stitch

Thanks to all of you who looked and commented on my last post.  I will be sure to post about what I do with the book and  "Salem village" as I decorate for Halloween.  I have finished all I am going to do on the Lizzie Kate Mystery Halloween Sampler Part 2.  I am waiting to do some of the borders and a few colors that I'm not so sure about.  There are beads and  charms that I will put on at the end also there are some fairly long straight stitches to do later.  That means that I'm back to "Halloween Town."  This is the one that I'm doing for my Grandson, Caleb.  As I have mentioned, I do a Halloween project for him each year.  He will be 7 tomorrow.  I don't have pictures of all of them but I thought I'd show you a few.

 Lizzie Kate Halloween Sampler.  You can see where there are spaces for the things I have skipped for now.

 I need to get lots done on this but I was so happy the border came together!! Yea!

 This is the first one I did for Caleb when he was first born.  I even had to call Mom and Dad to get the middle name.  They had not picked one yet.  I was so happy they picked Kennedy.  That was my Mom's maiden name.

 Not sure when I did this one.  It is a Homespun Elegance design.

This one was lots of fun to stitch.

 Here is last year's design.  It was in a Just Cross Stitch  magazine .  The design was done by Lisa of the Primitive Needle.  I so miss her designs.  I have bought several of them for future stitching.

Last but not least, I did this one for my Daughter -in-law(Caleb's Mom). It was a small kit.

Hope your week is going very well.  I had a super day with my DD. We went blueberry picking! Thanks again for taking a look!!!

  3. Love them all! Oh and by the way, I am related to Kennedy's as well. Perhaps we are distant cousins!

  5. What a sweet grandma you are to stitch little Caleb a project each year for Halloween!! They are all so wonderful, Barb. I've been meaning to stitch the Drawn Thread one myself--maybe this year! Hope Caleb has a fabulous birthday :)

  17. I like the Cricket collection one, so appropriate for a small child. Who was the designer on the second one (the one with his initials)?
