Designed by Susan Aldrich .  The same designer that did the candy corn I stitched last month.  Freebie at

This was a fun little piece to stitch.

Cheryl's Black Cat

For my March ornament, I selected a chart from the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Halloween Issue.  The design is "Stitch-an-Inch Halloween" by Donna Bayliss of "By the Bay Needleart".

I stitched the pattern on 14 ct clear plastic canvas.  I backed it with black felt, pinked the edge and added a black satin ribbon and purple buttons to finish.

Prairie Schooler Book 200 Witching Hour.  One of the bonus designs. 32 lambswool linen.  Changed the dmc black out for Dinky Dyes Vintage Newsprint.  Great coverage.

Stephanie's Black Cat

Here's my March Boo Club stitching... cute little black cat, it will have tiny white buttons for eyes but I'll add that later.  Black cats are my favorite, btw.  It took 3 days to stitch this, because.... life.  We booked a vacation for later this year and I got sucked into the vortex that is Disney trip planning. And I lost one of my DMC's... (the purple).  Quite maddening because I had it in hand last month.  Oh well, hopefully next month will be better!

Jo's March Stitching - Black Cats

I love black cats, they are my favourite of all cats and luckily my Happy Hallowe'en Night by Jardin Prive has two of them.

Here is the first one:

stitched on 32 count Cognac linen

The other cat is flying high on a broomstick so will be added later with the witch.

Here is the full piece so far:

Next month is Spiders and there is a very small one just above the cat's head.  Then I'll stitch some more of the lettering.

January and February Ornies......

Hmmm!  A bit behind (when am I ever not behind?) so far this year but I am now caught up, I think.

January Ornament: Winged Creatures

Dancing Witches by Needlebling Designs
Stitched on over-dyed purple linen with my own choice of floss colours.

This is what the final piece will look like one day....

(I am saving the dancing witches on the bottom for September and the tree will fit in with June's theme).

February Ornament:  Candy Corn and Food

Witch's Kitchen a freebie by The Primitive Hare
Unknown cream linen
I changed the colours quite a bit, you can see, if you look at Isabella's original piece...

I hope that you like my changes.

I am busily stitching my black cat - so maybe she will be finished by March 31st- one can only dream!
