I recently joined the "Pumpkin Seed Stitchers" group on Facebook for those who like to stitch Halloween designs. Teresa Smith of T. A. Smith's designs created a piece for the group called "Haunting Love". The design is monochrome, but I decided to do it in color. It's just the sweetest piece. A little bird flew in and landed unexpectedly on the upper right branch, but otherwise this is stitched from Teresa's chart. Don't you love the little ghosties and the tiny mouse couple?
It's done in DMC (310,4140, 4045,
3746,4124,451,3045,317, and 4000) on a piece of Miek's hand-dyed fabric. Love those color variations. 4000 is one of the newest colors and it made a great tree trunk. I finished it up as a pin keep this afternoon.
Couple of pieces of good news to report:
First, the lost LHN "Needles and Threads" square for WOCS finally arrived! It took one month to get from DC to Florida. Those squares usually take 3 days to make that trip. I could have walked to Florida in that time I think. Hope the square had a nice world tour. I'm so glad it didn't get lost forever!
Second, my partner and I won our summer tote bag in Jazzercise by attending the required number of classes during the summer. The promo below shows the bag. Our instructor was nice enough to give us some extra time to get all of our classes in. I always think I don't care about these promotions and it's not why I go to class, but these incentives don't hurt!
