Halloweenie and some finds

Let the Halloween stitching begin...


"Witches Nine" by The Primitive Needle

I am stitching it on 40ct mellow with WDW

I finished my BOAF Wicked Witch into a little pillow ornament



I found this perprtual calendar at Bed Bath and Beyond and just had to have it. 29.99 with a 20% off coupon, warned!! not a good snap at all, but you get the idea. I hung it with fabric to match the kitchen colors.

I will leave you with my Friday finds

All .25 cents each

It took several tries getting Bri to hold it just right, lol

Can anyone tell me about the tape measure, the almost 100 yr old man said "it was real old"

Thanks so much for visiting and even more for leaving a comment.

Great witchy stitching!

Jan said...

Great stitches, Ranae! I always love to come and see what you have been stitching on, never fails to interest me!

That tape measure, although I am 'old' I can't tell you much about it, wish I could. I just know they quit making tape measures that yellow color, at least 30 years ago. Quite a find, as are the trivits!! Congrats!

Sadie said...

I'm starting to think about some halloween stitching too.

All very fun stuff. I don't know much about vintage or antique tape measures, but that sure is a beauty!

Great finds!

What a cute little finish and new WIP..

Berit said...

Oh, Hallowe'en! And here I thought I was the only one dragging it out in July, lol! I'd have to be a stitching machine to get everything done that I wanted for this season--good thing that I'm happy stitching Hallowe'en stuff right up to December. And, then after the new year I'm just as happy to take it up now and again until spring comes.

That ribbon you used to finish the hanger is awesome!!

Love that new start!!! Maybe it's time to dye that lil' cut and start my re-stitch of that Homespun Elegance. :D

Mary said...

Your stitching and finishing are great..I love Halloween too and just bought a new pattern (like I NEED one MORE in my stash) :)

Love your Halloween start Ranae. I really need to start on some ornaments. I bought a small black tree over a year ago with the intent of stitching some ornaments to display on it, started one and never got it finished!!!

Love your finds.

Pumpkin said...

Holy cow! You DID get some great finds :o)

Wow your new start on the 40ct mello is wonderful Ranae - LOVE the BOAF finish - that is just too cute. I guess seeing the cover of the JCS Halloween issue on a shop newsletter this morning has me thinking about fun fall stitching also. I'm ready NOW! We're slow roasting down here in NE FL. Melody
