Halloween Happiness... The Witch


Each month during 2017 I am stitching on the design Halloween Happiness by Sandra Cozzolino / Imaginating.  I will pick a portion of the chart that fits with the themes and hopefully get it all finished by the end of 2017!

February's theme was "Witches" .... and here she is.... say hello to the tipsy witch and her familiars!


I agree with Jo she definitely looks like she has been up to something with her spells and potions! Legs all akimbo over the letter W!  Goodness me! :o)

Next month it will be the "ee's" which are all wrapped up in spider webs and spiders!  Eek... that's going to be fun!

Til then.. happy Halloween Stitching :o)

January - Anne S

Oops, just realised I hadn't posted my finish as yet for January.  I was actually a day or two late in stitching it, mainly because I just couldn't decide what to stitch, there were too many designs to choose from!  I ended up with this wee freebie by The Prairie Schooler.


This year it was my hope to work on two or three larger designs throughout the year - but in hindsight that's probably a bit ambitious. I'll decide how I go throughout the year, but I'll be adding to at least one of the following larger designs at some point in the year. Considering I had intended to do both moons in the Just Nan (Witchy Way) and Prairie Schooler (When Witches Go Riding) ones in January, I'm not off to a great start on that score!!! Oh well, I may do a catch-up soon - I'll kit them all up this weekend in readiness so I can pick them up on a whim ;)

Jo's February Finish - Witches

I am continuing with Happy Hallowe'en by Imaginating and have added a rather tipsy witch!  Is it just me or does she look a little three sheets to the wind?


I still can't get an accurate photo of the fabric, it's a 32 count Lime Green Murano not khaki or dull green.

I made one unintentional change, there are two shades of purple in the W and I swapped them over.  I had nearly finished stitching the letter when I realised my error.  But it looks fine and no-one except us will ever know!

Also, why is there a tortoise on the end of the W?  How spooky are tortoise?  Not very.  Maybe she uses him in a sloth spell?
