More Halloween Suff!


Thank you for all those very nice comments you  made about the Halloween things on my last post.  I always read and appreciate them so much.  And also thanks to all the readers! I decided to continue with the theme of Halloween.  I hope you all are having a good week and will enjoy these pictures.

Here is the Lizzie Kate all framed up.  The frame is sort of mottled black.  I love the way Amy over at Sew Amy finished her mystery sampler.

I have had this wool picture for a long time.  We got it at a sort of primitive/antique shop in Scottsburg, IN when we lived in Louisville.


Here is my antique die-cut witch made in Germany.  You can't tell but it is framed in a sort of 3-D way.

Here is Witchy by The Primitive Needle.  It is framed in a very old frame we found. It is over the desk in the foyer.

My first cross stitch!! I had been piecing a quilt and complained to a friend that I had nothing to do in the car.  She suggested this and I was hooked!!

My first piece done on linen ,25 ct. I think. 

This is my idea of the perfect Halloween front porch!!!!!!

My work in progress.  I am looking for some of those paper balls.The problem is, I need them to be plastic coated to hold up to our moisture.  The paper ones just wilt, I have tried them.

I do love my wreath!

Thanks so much for joining me!

  3. You can never have too much Halloween around ( or Christmas). I love your Very Scary framed. Where will you hang it? And I'm so jealous you have your first piece you ever stitched... mine is long gone from many many years ago.

  13. I love all your Halloween decor! Have you thought about spraying the paper balls with a craft sealant? Its a bit of work but if you'll use them for more than one year it might be worth it.
