May - Pumpkins

I love black bird!


Kaye's May stitch....

.... well, I didn't think I was going to get an ornie done by the end of the month, which is tomorrow.  But I made a concerted effort last night to get my Pumpkin ornie finished and here is the result:

"King of Halloween"
Freebie from 
28 count Waterfall Blue Lugana 
(the photos do not do the colour justice - it is more a mint green)
Pumpkin: WDW Fiesta (my favourite colour for Halloween pumpkins)
Rest of design: various DMC threads

Anyway, that is this month for me - off to choose my June design.

hugs,  Kaye (Kitten Stitching)

April's March, April & May Halloween Stitches

So I am a little behind, but I finally have March, April and May stitches to share.
March's stitch is a piece from The Prairie Schooler.  It is from a leaflet from last year.  Unfortunately I don't remember the name of it.

April's stitch is also from The Prairie Schooler.  Again I don't have the leaflet in front of me, so I don't know the name of it.
Finally my May stitch is a free chart from Primitive Betty's.  Sorry the photo is sideways.  I love the pumpkin tree and I couldn't pass it up for this month's stitch,

Carla's April Ornie

"Happy Stitches 4 You" designed this cute little thing.  There is a second one that I'd like to stitch up to use as a backside to this one.

So simple but super cute!

Cheryl's May Ornament

I'm not sure if I will finish stuffed or flat, so I haven't stitched the border yet.  Stitched on an unknown type of loosely woven 18 ct. beige colored fabric.

It's a Jack-O-Balloon

I finished up part 2 of Fright Flight by stitching the pumpkin balloon.  TeeHee .... I guess her broom is out of order. It's the humor in patterns like this that make me enjoy Halloween stitching so much ...  makes me grin every time I look at it.

Pumpkins Galore!

This was a very Serendipitous finish for the month, Just Nan's Haunted Pumpkins Tree.  I received the chart from Mouse and the fabric from Shebafudge for my Birthday last year and started the design in October 2014.  I picked it up again for one day in the DUCJC this January and then worked it on fairly solidly though May, finishing it at the weekend.

Stitched on 28 count Chocolate Orange evenweave from Crafty Kitten.
Heart Charm supplied with chart,

Jo's May Ornament

Will you look at this, only the 1st of May and I have a finish already!  This is such a quick stitch, I ran it up this afternoon in just a couple of hours.

This is Just Nan's Poor Jack, one of her complimentary designs.  I think I downloaded it from the JCS website but I'm not 100% sure!  I stitched it on 32 count Lavender evenweave to match the other Just Nan spooky smalls.

(I have no idea why the spiders are wearing little orange top hats!)

And here's a bonus finish for last month's Tombstones.  This one is by Stitchers Anon and is based on Charles Dicken's book A Christmas Carol.  She also does the three Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.

Stitched over 1 on 28 count Platinum Cashel linen.
