Jo's June Ornament

Free choice.  I always put a couple of free choice options in the themes so people can stitch their favourite thing without having to fit it in to a specific category.  But does anyone else find this one really difficult to make the decision?

I was just overwhelmed with choices!  So to narrow it down, I selected one magazine and said "choose a design from that".  The magazine was the Just Cross Stitch Hallowe'en preview issue from 2011.  The designer is Blue Ribbon Designs and the design is Boo Mansion:

Stitched on 32 count Twilight Blue linen

and scrapbooked with its companion piece Owls by Midnight:

Of course, as soon as I started stitching this one I realised that July's theme is Haunted Houses.  So now I have to find a different Haunted House for that one!

Frank N Stein

June's free choice is Frank N Stein from Pickle Barrel Designs.  The original pattern called for 3 separate pieces (head, body and legs) but that's too much finishing for me so I combined the 3 body parts into just one creepy monster.

Check out this link for the way the designer intended him to look.  He's in the upper right corner of the cover picture.

Noni's May Pumpkin

Hello!  Sorry I missed my April Tombstone deadline.... still waiting to finish stitching that one as I ran out of the required thread and I haven't managed to get around to placing an order yet....

I am here now to show you my May Pumpkin....  technically this is not a Halloween design but it still has a pumpkin or two!

See you at the end of June.... can't wait to see what everyone stitches for their free choices.
