April's January Finish

Here is my little finish for January.  The design is by The Prairie Schooler and is from the leaflet called Hocus Pocus.  I used DMC and GAST.  The fabric is a piece from my stash.
It was a very fun stitch.

Lili's January Ornie: The Moon

My first ornament for the 2017 SAL.
Design: Primitive Acorns - Lunar Spells
Fabric/Threads: 40 count  Thieffry Linen Bleu Ciel / DMC

Thanks for visiting!
See you next month! Happy stitching!

Halloween Happiness... The Moon

Halloween Happiness.... yes... I am also stitching this gorgeous design for my themes this year. The plan this year is to break this design down each month and by the end of the year I will have one big finish :o)

I started the moon as my New Year's Day start and managed to finish it by the end of the month... so far I am on track!

You will notice that I have also started the Witch... or at least her foot has appeared.  You weren't supposed to see that but I did a boo boo Betty....  I backstitched the stars, took the picture, started the witch's foot and then realised that I had backstitched the stars in black not white.... so out they came!  All fixed now!

I am stitching the design on some 28ct count light purplish coloured fabric that I bought at a craft fair a couple of years ago with the called for DMC threads - stitching from stash!

See you next month with my witch :o)

Rita's Jan 2017 The Moon Finish

It took me a while to decide on what to stitch for this month.  I finally decided on this one from the PS Boo Moon leaflet.

Which Witch finish

Hi everyone,  This is my first post to the Halloween Stitching.  I finished a set of 4 small Halloween pieces from the JCS Magazine.   It was titled Which Witch.  I will come back later to show you the FFO piece (Fully Finished Piece) when I take it out of the bin of shame.

My Copy Cat January Finish...

Well, as you all probably know, I love practically everything that dear Jo stitches, so I have jumped onto the Halloween Happiness bandwagon and I am stitching the Imaginating design, too, for this SAL.  So, without further ado, here is my Moon for this month's theme....

Fabric: 28 ct orange Lugana
Floss: My own choice of specialty threads

hugs, Kaye

Jo's January Finish(es) - The Moon

Hello 2017 and my first Spooky Stitching of the year!

This year I have once again chosen a larger pattern which I will stitch one element each month to fit in with the themes.  The design is by Imaginating and is called Happy Hallowe'en.  You can Google it or wait and see!

I have chosen a 32 count Murano in Lime Green which is incredibly difficult to photograph accurately.  This is the best match I could get:

And here is the finished moon:

I also continued with the Oberlin Witches piece I started last month because that has a moon too.  Here it is now:

It's stitched on the same fabric as the first design.  I will try scanning it next month to see if that works.
