HAPPY HALLOWEEN!


HALLOWEEN

A gentle breeze rustling the dry cornstalks.

A sound is heard, a goblin walks.

A harvest moon suffers a black cat's cry.

Oh' do the witches fly!

Bonfire catches a pumpkins gleem.

Rejoice, it's Halloween!

-Richard Anderson

 "Waiting for the Harvest"
by Blackbird Designs

Stitched on 32ct 18th Century Brown
by R&R

Using GAST, "Dark Chocolate"

On a recent trip to see my sister's new home away from home, I stitched up this wonderful new pattern from Blackbird Designs.  It was a quick stitch as I did most of it while riding in the car.  Now, how to finish it?????

Smiles,

Jolene

Happy Halloween! I recently ordered the Blackbird design you posted and some Dinky Dyes Ironbard silk to stitch it with. I need a small project once in a while so I feel like I have accomplished something while I work on the bigger sampler(s):) I think I will make another pincushion. They make great gifts.
