Halloween Stitching Has Started

Hi my stitchy friends, thanks for all your nice comments to my posts new and old.

It's October and that means Halloween stitching. 

Started of with a mill hill kit



Then a new start o Halloween Tree by Barbara Ana


It's on 18ct Aida gold digger by colour cascade fabrics.
Had to stitch the witch before moving on.


Had my birthday this week. My plans didn't happen so it ended up being just another day.


I did get a choc mint cake, was so yum.

I was feeling a little down so what's a girl to do.... Shop of course, spend all that birthday money.

I went online to sew it all and got lots of fabric, mostly Aida but also evenweave.
 I got 2 evenweaves for 2 heaven and earth charts that I want to start. I want to re start welcome to the forest as right now it's on white but there's a lot of white in it. Im hopeful that the new fabric will work. I also got a lot of fabric for Christmas charts. I don't have many Christmas projects in my Wips and I have a few charts I would like to start.

I also went to 123stitch and got more charts, fabric, kreinik, beads, things I needed for the charts I have going. 

I'm also waiting on a colour cascade fabric order I made in September and I'm in her monthly subscription.

 so I have lots of cross stitch goodies to come in the mail. 

Next up I got back to my wip Wicked by Barbara Ana

Before


Now


I'm thinking of staying with wicked this week and see if I can get it done. I still want to stitch on it. I have so many charts with keys in them. 

That's it this week. Happy Scary Stitching!!!

Great Halloween stitching. Sorry your birthday plans didn't pan out. Happy Belated Birthday. Sounds like the shopping was a lot of fun at least. Can't wait to see it all when it arrives.
