I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Count Me In!

Sewing: A creative mess is better than tidy idleness
~ Author Unknown ~

Well hello again!  I am back to show you (finally) my finished February stitching for the Hallowe'en Ornie 2014 Blog.

My February design was "Count Me In" by Nancy Greenburg of Pickle Barrel Designs.  This design was published in the Just Cross Stitch Halloween Collection 2013 issue.  Such a fantastic source for Halloween designs.

"Count Me In"
Started 20th February 2014, Finished March 2014
I love how the orange stands out on the purple coloured Aida.  Very Halloween-ish colours!!

The March theme is Witches.  I have found so many different designs to stitch which contain witches, but I am still not sure which one I particularly want to stitch!  Although the Snowflower Diaries Seasonal Witches are very high on the list.

That's it for the time being.  Unfortunately not a lot of other stitching has been done lately except for the Count!  So now I had better get myself organised with some of my other stitching projects that are either on the go and waiting in the wings otherwise I won't have anything else to show you on the next post!

Til next time, happy stitching

  3. I love your vampitre, he's looking gorgeous on theat violet fabric.Now I'M curious to see the witch that you choose for the SAL. I love the ones by Snowflower Diaries, too.
