The WIP that almost made...

a Halloween Happy Dance, but now is finished


"Halloween Poster" by Stoney Creek, book 374
not sure the fabric used with DMC and GA thread
I had lots of fun stitching this one. It is one of my favorite pieces.


Here's where I am on The Primitive Needle

" Hallow Sampler"
I have till Thanksgiving, Right?
Let the holiday stitching begin...

"Evergreen" by Blackbird Designs
is the pattern Kajsa and I decided for our BBD Wednesday SAL. The border is Pecan and the lettering calls for havanna which is really brown and not green at all, so I am using Evergreen

Here's my little GrandLady Bug on Halloween


h

I think she is telling me " No more candy, Grandma" lol
Live Well~Laugh Often~Stitch Much

Wonderful stitching!!

Annette said...

What a great and lovely finish, I love that piece..
Such a cute ladybug girl

Deb said...

I think all your pieces are great! And your granddaughter is adorable!!

Annie said...

Love the witchy and the Primitive Needle piece. I think it's fine to extend Halloween stitching into November. It still feels pretty 'fall-like'.

Your ladybug is just the sweetest. She was probably saying not to take any more of her candy anyway.

Charlene said...

Oh, I love it! Give that sweetheart ladybug a squeeze for me!

Mylene said...

Congrats on a beautiufl finish!

Myra said...

Now isn't that the cutest ladybug you've ever seen ;o)

Carol said...

Wow! You sure have been busy, Ranae! I love the Halloween Poster--haven't seen that chart before. Your WIPs are great, but the absolute cutest thing is that darling ladybug--what a lucky grandma you are :)

Judy S. said...

Love that little ladybug, Ranae, and also the Dancing on the Moon piece. The rest are awfully nice, too!

Congrats on your finish! I love the Hollow Sampler too. You asked what threads I'm using for Jenny Bean, I'm using the Limited Edition Thread Pack. It's really pretty!

Nicola said...

Great Halloween finish Ranae. WIP's are looking good, love the BBD one.

Ter'e said...

WOW! Your stitching is so beautiful! I am on a "Primitive Needle" kick.......I need more hours in the day to play.

Loved your little granddau..............what a cutie patootie!

Keep up all that beautiful stitching girlfriend!!!! Your work is scrumtous!!!!!! (sp?)

Sharon said...

Great finish! Your stitching always looks fabulous Ranae. Briana is too adorable and getting so big.

Berit said...

How did I miss commenting on this!? I am COMPLETELY in love with that Prim Needle piece! Have you shown this on your blog before? *can't recall* Because someone made me fall head over heels for this within the last month or so--it is TDF!! What's the linen?

ALSO, your finish and Granddaughter are great ;)

Finally, as a Scorpio (and someone with a calendar) I decree that Halloween/Autumn can indeed continue through Thanksgiving. Technically, it runs up until just a few days before the Big Day (Dec. 25)--right until the winter solstice in point of fact. :P I've been on my soapbox about this for a while, and might have to blog it out. While I have no problem with Christmas talk and images on blogs; I'm not ready for "Christmas Songs" (never carols) and fake snow in the stores yet.

Finally Part II: Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog!

Lillie said...

Suzanne said...

Very cute Halloween finish! Great progress on the Hallow Sampler.

Your Granddaughter looks so adorable all dessed up as a ladybug.

Love the Evergreen piece you are stitching. Which of the loose feathers design is it?
