Thanksgiving is almost here, but as I promised in my last post, I would be back with my final Halloween treats.
Well, these past few weeks have been busy ones for me but happy ones as I also celebrated a birthday!
So....better late than never... here are my completed Halloween treats for 2013.....
San Man's "Quaker 31" was stitched 2 over 2 for depth on 28ct white Monaco. I finished this with plaid backing fabric and a matching fabric wire hanger. Each little motif made this an enjoyable stitch.
"Jester Jack" from Cherry Wood Designs was stitched from a chart in JCS Halloween 2012 issue. I stitched him on 32 ct PTP Prank and added Halloween ribbons and matching colored pipe cleaners at the top and around his neck for a fun finish. What do you think?
My final finish was "Bubble and Froth" from Mindi at Joie de Vivre. The "girls" were stitched on 32 ct PTP Tarnish and I added some glitz to give the piece a bit of color. The moon, cat's eyes and cauldron bubbles were stitched with metallic threads. I couldn't resist the metallic ricrac and sparkly button. Thank you, Mindi for a fun design.
The star fabric is actually purple but my camera "saw" blue instead!

I am blessed to have a wonderful family and great friends.
I was thrilled to receive this gift from Carol who is one of my dearest blogging friends. Everything she makes is a special treasure.

I admired "Giving Thanks" on her blog and was so surprised when my gift arrived to know that one was stitched for ME~! It is stitched two over two on 40 ct. and perfectly finished. Aren't the colors lovely?
Beggars Night is a beautiful chart and I am thrilled that it will be a part of my Halloween 2014 stitching.
The small rusty bells will be great additions to my smalls for Christmas!
I LOVE my gifts, Carol and am grateful and blessed to call you my friend. Thank you for remembering me on my special day! xxxxx
Like many of you, I am also stitching PSS Mary's Sampler. Isn't it beautiful? Since my name is Mary and it displays the true meaning of Christmas, I am more than happy to share in Paulette's special gift to us. Thank you, Paulette!
