The Halloween Mystery Sampler and a spider web!

First, I want to thank all of you who commented on my blog and said such nice things about the Witches that were made by my daughter.  She reads my blog and also extends her thanks!(Lucky Laurie is at the beautiful Pacific beaches this week). I have finished all the cross stitches in the Halloween Sampler.  Now I have all the satin stitches,charms, and beads  to add.  We are going out of town next week so I hope to have it done by Mon.  that way , I can order the frame so it will be available when we get home.



 I really like that candy corn border!

Ready for the satin stitch grass!

 See those little leaves, they gave me fits till I got a rhythm going!


I may be crazy, but I think these webs are beautiful.  We saw this as we opened our garage door the other morning to go for a walk!
I hope you are all having a terrific week!  Our weather is beautiful , sunny and 70's.  I could enjoy it if it weren't for the lack of rain that is causing so many fires out here!

  3. Lovely stitching as always and no you are not crazy. I think the construction of a spider web is fascinating and I love to see them when we have had a sharp frost,they are beautiful then.Just hope the owner of the webs are able to take shelter from the cold!

  16. Hi Barb. I see beauty in that spider web too! Your LHN Halloween Sampler looks fabulous.

    I like the picture in your header too - the Jenny Bean Halloween Sampler. That was one of my favorite projects that I worked on (and finished) last year!
