Witches Hollow framed

I'm so excited to get my Witches Hollow by The Primitive Needle delivered today

Jill Rensel Studio did a fabulous job on the framing, I highly recommend getting your cherished pieces framed by them. And at reasonable prices too.

It took me at least 1/2 hour to break into the package, very well packaged.

Off to stitch some more, to get framed, lol
Good evening! all

Happy Thursday

Barb (http://primpair.blogspot .com) and I are doing a SAL on a Blackbird Designs
We started last week. I believe we are going to post every Thursday
Anyone is welcome to jump in, even if you haven't started or your almost done
I'm still debating whether I'm going to add the vine border or not, I most likely will

Away We Ride
Stitching on 30ct cocoa with recommended threads

Here are some of my other Halloween WIPS

What do you think of my color changes? I thought the color changes would be fun, but now second guessing myself. Wicked Witch by La D Da

The next one is a very washed out photo, I couldn't the right color orange, which is much more orange INL
I'm stitching on 32ct Eek linen with Belle Soie black silk
Thine is the Trick and the Treat by Prairie Moon

Thine is the Trick and the Treat by Prairie Moon

Land of the Free

Happy Friday!

I have another finish, fresh off the hoop

Land of the Free

By Willow Hill Samplings
Stitched on 40ct pearled barley w/GA and CC threads
It's so much more prettier in life, the lighting here is not too good with the sun going down

I found this dusty old 8X10 frame at a antique store for 10.00

I can't wait to put something in it. I might redo the finish or maybe leave it as it is, I guess it depends on the design.

Have a great weekend!!
