Themes for 2019

First of all, my apologies for neglecting this blog just lately.  When life gets busy, something has to give and you all seemed to be happy stitching and posting which was good.

If people would like to keep stitching into 2019 that would be wonderful.  I will do my best to join in when I can. 

I had a look at the Hallowe'en SAL in Stitch Maynia and thought it would be a nice idea to follow their themes so that those of us who belong to the FB group can join in both SALs in the same month.  I expanded a couple of categories just for our blog.  So here they are:

January - H is for Haunted House
February - A is for Addams Family (or any spooky characters)
March - L is for Lantern, Jack O’
April - L is for Loot
May - O is for October
June - W is for Witch
July - E is for Eek (or anything scary)
August - E is for Eyeballs (or any body part including skeletons)
September - N is for Night
October - B is for Bat
November - O is for Orange and Black
December - O is for Owls

I did fully-finish my Hallowe'en piece for 2018 and here it is:

Jardin Prive - Happy Hallowe'en Night

Stitched on 32 count Cognac linen

I had a couple more spooky finishes in 2018:

Dam Good Crafts - Dracula

JBW - Smiling Jack O'Lanterns

Plum Street Samplers - Brew Ha Ha

Just Nan - Haunted Autumn Mouse in a House

And I completed the lettering on my Spooky conversion of The Enchanted Alphabet by Lavender and Lace:

Steph's Free Choice - Boo Club finished!

Hello friends, I'm popping in to share my Boo Club which I finished December 26th with a few buttons (as included in the charts) and brass charms (my addition).
Here's a close up of the bottom section.  That bottom border was a lot of fun to stitch!
It's been lovely participating in this SAL.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
