I DID IT! I finally finished the Halloween Spooky Sampler! You may remember I started it back in October of last year. My last update was in January and I had just a little more to do! I finished it finally last month. Phew. When I didn't get it finished in time for Halloween last year, I seriously thought of just packing it away and picking it up again as it got closer to Halloween this year. But I was so close to finishing, I decided to go ahead and finish it. I'm so glad I did because it's such a great piece.
See, I told you! How sweet is this? That border was no joke though. It got really tedious towards the end. This was my first time stitching on linen and I loved it. I definitely hope to do more, but with my no craft supply buying rule I gave myself, I may have to wait. I have so much aida in my stash that I'm trying to work through that. I do have one piece of linen waiting for the perfect though. (wink) Here's some not so great photos of each letter.
|H for Haunted House|
|A for Apparition|
|L for Lightning|
|L for Lollipops|
|O for Owls|
|W for Witch (isn't she so cute!)|
|E for Eyes|
|E for Eek!|
If you would like to stitch this awesome pattern, just click here to go to The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's website. Now I just have to figure out how I want to finish it. I'm thinking I'd like to frame it, but then I think it would be nice to make a pillow with it. At least I have some time to think about it.
'Til next time!
