All About Cross Stitch

Hi there cloud friends.  As my title says, this will be all about cross stitch.  I have not included the Ghoultide Welcome.  I decided that monster deserves a post of it's own.  That one taught me more about what I like and don't like while stitching than any other project I have ever stitched..  At least it is finished! I do have three smaller ones to share with you today.


 Cinnamon Stars by Plum Street Sampler is all finished and framed.  I couldn't get a good picture of the frame as it had a big glare from the glass.  Anyway, the fabric is a much softer color than it appears here.  I really like this one and it will stay up all Fall.  I used the colors that the chart called for.

 Here we have Pineberry Lane's Fancey's Sunflowers.  This was a chart that I bought on my trip to Chicago.  I am planning to finish it like an ornament and hang it in the kitchen. I used Lakeside linen's Vintage Sand Dune and the DMC floss that the chart called for.  I love the colors.  They are just right for Fall.

 This is a great primitive design.  The chart is by Stacy Nash Primitives and is called simply Halloween Pinkeep.  This photo makes it look much more orange that it really appears.  I just can't figure out why the camera so often changes the color of things.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I am starting to decorate for Halloween.  I like to leave things up for about 6 weeks so I can enjoy them.  I won't start the outside till the middle of October. I hope you all have a great week!

  17. Wonderful Halloween finishes, all of them. I'm not into Halloween as it is not really celebrated over here. But I love Halloween designs, particularly those with witches. Fancey is one of my favourite witches and I still have some of these designs in my stash. I should really stitch them :)

  19. Barb, I particularly like Cinnamon Stars - the Quaker stars are lovely. I am sure you will enjoy all three of your autumnal stitches.

  20. Three great finishes, my dear. Too hard to choose a favourite, I am finding, although I do really like Cinnamon Stars. I am intrigued, what did you learn about your Stitching self from Ghoultide Welcome, I can't wait to hear all about it. Xxx
