A Finish and More Witches

First, thanks to all of you who said such nice things about my header.  She is one of many witches that my DD, Laurie , has made for me.  I decided to show you even more in this post.  I love her work.  She commented that she got her creative talent from me, not quite true.  Laurie is more creative than I will ever be.  She is truly an artist and wool has been her medium.
I also finished Caleb's Halloween design one day early, on Sunday.  I think it is a great design for a little boy.  I don't think I ever put so many things  on one design, beads, glittery rayon floss, and several buttons. It was quite a challenge.  We now have to get it in the mail to him.

 Dancing  In the Moonlight by Praiseworthy Stitches (in the JCS Halloween magazine 2013 issue) stitched on 32 count Haunted Belfast( a bit more blue than the photo shows) by Picture This Plus.  All threads and buttons were the ones suggested except the spider web, that I stitched with DMC rayon floss.

 I love the iron fence!

 Now the witches and a few other Halloween decorations from Laurie of Woolpets.







 She is almost too happy to be a witch!



 This was my first witch.  She sits on top of my Halloween tree.

 Both the beautiful owl and the bat are from my DD.



 I keep him up all year with different little things at his feet.


Thank you so much for joining me today!  I hope the week is going well for all of you!!!!
