Theresa's April to August Ornies

Hello everyone - I've been absent for a while stitching gifts and larger pieces.  Now I'm back to Halloween ornies.  One of my bigger-than-ornie-size pieces is Last Stitch Cemetery by Hinzeit.  Perhaps this one can pass for my April ornie?!
Stitched on 32ct Legacy lugana by Picture This Plus.  Yet to be framed.  My May pumpkin ornie is Along Came a Spider by Amy Brueckin from the Sept/Oct 2011 JCS.  Stitched on 30ct WDW peoria purple linen (it's really a very bright purple, but looks gray in this pic) with DMC.  I decided to do something out of the ordinary for the shape.  I like how it turned out!
My choice for June is a Lizzie*Kate freebie, All Hallows Eve stitched on 32 ct. olive linen and finished with a pom-pom trim.
My July haunted house is a popular choice as I've seen it a few times.  Called Boo Mansion from Blue Ribbon Designs in the Sept/Oct 2011 JCS Halloween issue.  Finished into a pillow with hand-made cording.
And, finally, my black cat for August is a section of a larger piece called All Boxed Up by Michelle Lutzen in the Sept 2014 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework Mag.  Stitched with DMC on a 28ct purple linen scrap and finished with fabric, cording, and buttons.
Whew!  I think I'm all caught up.  Yeah!  Hope you enjoy.  Theresa
