Greetings on this damp, dreary Autumn day...and no, I am not complaining...I love this kind of day---it lends itself to warm drinks, a little organizing and, regretfully, laundry. But I did want to swing by and share a few recent FFO's.... or as I like to call them FFP's (finally finished projects). Here we go.....
First up, is Halloween Chalk, my recent class piece with Cathy from Hands on Design. I had finished one in class, but now have the other two completed. Aren't they the cutest???
They were stitched on WDW 32 count Gun Metal linen over two with two strands of called for colors. This was a kit, so everything was included.
Next up are two necklaces I made for Halloween. On the left is another HOD piece that Cathy gave us in class. It is called White Pumpkin and I stitched this up and popped it in a tin frame as a necklace. I stitched it on a 32 count mystery green linen. Cathy left it up to us to choose the fibers so I used GAST Burnt Orange, Oatmeal and Sarsparilla...two strands over two. On the right is the witch from Time for Halloween by With Thy Needle and Thread. That was stitched over 2 on a 40 count mystery linen with a combo of GAST and WDW. I popped it in a Tim Holtz pocket watch and voila...it's ready to go!!!
Last, but not least, is the adorable piece we received at our Jamboree weekend, designed by Sally at Salty Yarns, Halloween 2019. This was also a kit complete with the box, linen, fibers, ribbon and charm. I added some rust mini ric-rac along the edge, but otherwise, stitched as recommended.....one over one.
I did have a couple more finishes, but they are gifts so I will share after they have been presented.
Do you stitch for Halloween? There are so many cute designs out there but space is limited here at my house...at least two of these finishes I can wear!!!
I'm off to OCMD again on Thursday for a mini retreat with friends...see you on the flip side. Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
