There aren't enough days in the weekend
~ Rod Schmidt ~
Hi there! I know I have been very re-miss with my monthly updates for the Hallowe'en Ornie 2014 SAL Blog.... that's because I haven't really been doing any Halloween stitching lately! I sort of got stuck in May when my job changed and I went back to working 5 days a week - less time at home to stitch translated to less stitching being done!!
But today I do actually have a Halloween styled WIP to show you all! My last update on the Halloween SAL blog was back in April with the cute little Owl I stitched on plastic canvas.
May was a bit tricky because I couldn't find a monster that I liked enough to stitch.... so I moved on and started to look around to see what I could stitch for June & July.....
I have been eyeing off a design in the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue for quite some time... and I decided to stitch it this year. Of course, me being me... I took ages to get organised to start... but my train of thought for this design went along the lines of:
May - monsters: nope, no monsters
June - free choice: yep, design is my choice!
July - pumpkins: excellent, this design has a pumpkin
August - ghosts: oops, no ghosts in my free choice design....
September - black cats: yep, there are black cats - 3 actually!
Yippee, my free choice design covers off three out five months. So while I am still behind in this SAL, my free choice designs does sort of help me get back on track... all I have to do is finish it before the end of the year!!!
So here it is... my latest Halloween WIP:
|"Witch and Friends"|
Designed by Donna Giampa
Next month's theme is "Trick or Treaters". I have found a design for this one... but so far I haven't managed to start stitching October's theme.... but that's ok, after all the month has only just begun!!!
Hallowe'en Ornie SAL
October - Trick or Treaters
November - Bugs, insects or spiders
December - Free choice
Still to stitch:
May - Monsters
August - Ghosts
Well, that it for another stitching update. Can't promise you what I will have to show you in my next post... it will be a bit of a lucky dip I think...
Til next time, happy stitching!
