Feeling Halloween

Hi stitchers.

After my finish Nora Corbett it was back to my rotation Halloween Quaker by Lila's studio.
I'm happy with my progress as I got to the other end. 


And now

Sunday was Mother's Day, happy Mother's Day to all the mums.
I didn't want to stitch any more on my Quaker but I was still feeling like Halloween and I didn't have a lot of time left in the day so I got out a mill hill kit and today I finished it.

Meet Boris the bat ( with the egg eyes, no really don't you think so?)

It's a magnet one but I'm making it into a hanging, when I cut it out.

I would like to thank everyone that left a comment on my finish and my posts, even the ones I did weeks ago. It is never to late.

A update on my chart the birds and the bees 

I have decided on using 2 colors, most will be in waterlilies Mediterranean it's a blue and the birds are going to be in waterlilies Emerald a green. I think it will be bright and tropical looking.

Here's a photo of the fabric and threads. Think it will work?

I will need to send for more as I don't think one will do.
Now that brings me to my rotation, I'm going to be adding to it. I'm thinking of doing 2 projects a week, not just the one. I want to stitch all the things but I like the 4 I have so why not add to it. I'm going to make it a see what happens thing. Whatever happens I will post about it.

So that's it. I'm off to start back up on Rose, until next Monday Happy Stitching!!!
