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!!!


  1. Lovely stitching ,you always stitch some lovely colourful designs.
    Enjoy your week.

  2. Your halloween quaker design is just beautiful. x

  3. You made great progress on the Halloween stitching - it's gorgeous!

  4. Had to laugh at Boris with the egg eyes. Yes he does a bit, but it adds to his scary cuteness. Nice job on your Halloween sampler it's always great to get to the other side.

    That fabric is perfect with those threads. And why not add to your rotation. Do what makes you happy.
