High Hopes

Hello! my fine stitchy peeps

Kellie has prom tonight.
Thank Goodness she can drive as of the week before last. She saved me lots of time running her to get nails and hair done today. So that left me a little alone time to snap photo's of almost all my spookies and get them posted
Here are my Halloween/Fall WIP's I hope to get done this year




My favorite is Witches Hollow by The Primitive Needle. There's so much to look at in this design, love it! Next time I will post up close photo's so you can see the details





Halloween Rules by Lizzie Kate


Me thinks I have stitched four more Rules since the last time I posted an update. Did you notice I switched the Rules around? Just to make it my own and different from everyone elses


Fancey's Sunflowers by Pineberry Lane


Now if I can finish this off nicely, no promises, it will be for an upcoming retreat exchange




Something Wicked by La D Da
Stitching on Havana linen with silks






Hoodoo Voodoo by The Primitive Needle, love the spooky icons in this one




Victorian Halloween Houses #9 and #15/Judith Kirby


This has been a WIP for oh! some 15 years? lol


14ct Aida w/DMC


There might be one or two more lurking deep in the baskets and bins



Which is your favorite? love to hear from you





Off to take pictures and go to the Grand March



Thanks for visiting!

Halloween designs are always so fun to stitch, and you have such a nice selection! I really can't name a favorite - love them all!

How very seasonal!

I love the Primitive Needle one, the photo isn't "clickable" so I can't enlarge it, I'd love to see more details.

I also love the La Di Da shoe.

Your projects are looking fantastic Ranae! Love Witches Hollow!

You have some great designs in progress! I especially like Fancey's Sunflowers. :)

The Inspired Stitcher said...

Hands down, the first one! I love all the different things. You are right, there's lots to look at there.

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Wow - great stitching and lots done! If I HAD to choose, it would be Witches Hollow, but HooDo VooDo comes in a close second.

Anne said...

Lovely stitching Ranae! I hope your daughter has a great time at the prom!!

Shelleen said...

I am a Halloween freak so I like them all but my favorite is Victorian House.

Jeanne said...

Well they're all wonderful. I love Halloween designs...have a few of these in my stash but unstitched of course. A coworker is doing Halloween Rules and swears it is haunted...she keeps having Mr Frog visit her, threads are disppearing, and other mysterious happenings. Hope the stitchy goblins aren't getting you too.

Lynn said...

Your Halloween WIP are fantastic!! I have several of them in my stash including Witches Hollow and the Judith Kirby design. I'm really looking forward to further progress on them.

Brigitte said...

What a nice collection of Halloween pieces. All of them are so pretty but my favourite would be the Primitive Needle one. I just love her designs.
