A haunting Halloween is heading this way...

It's almost Halloween and I thought I would share some of my favorite cross stitch finishes from over the years...
Blackbird Designs had a wonderful Halloween book out a few years ago and I think that I stitched almost every design.

I did this design teeny tiny over one. It continues to be a favorite. I was informed by my youngest son that he would like to trick or treat with his friends this year without his mother tagging along. He's in middle school and I know it is time, but I am so sad... it's the end of an era for me...
This was stitched before kids with lots of specialty and glow-in-the dark threads. I don't stitch pieces that take this much thought any more lol.

I am behind schedule for Halloween this year. We haven't even bought our pumpkins yet. No time for a trip to the pumpkin farm. Luckily the neighborhood community church partners with an impoverished community and picks up and sells their harvest for them. That's where we will go this year...

In the past few days the sun has either been too bright for pictures and non-existent. The pics aren't the best, but you get the idea.
My hope is to post one more time before Halloween with some fabric finishes. Hope your Halloween preparations are well under way...
Blessings, Patti

I enjoyed looking at your Halloween designs. They are all so nice. BBD has designed a lot of cute Halloween things. I really like their new little stockings.

Look at all your pretties! I love them all. I've done quite a few of the BBD Designs from the Trix or Treat book too! Isn't that little crow with the witches hat one of your favorites? He is mine! :)
So you contacted Lois?! And got a kit too! How did you find her? You should e-mail me and lets talk wool!

They all look great! And I agree, BBD does have some great Halloween designs! I haven't even done one this year. I feel so out of it!

I love thos velvety pumpkins...and the color is gorgeous! I agree with your Halloween stitching as I have also finished most of the same patterns. Fun! Galena is close to where I live and it is a fun weekend spot. You happened on a cool weekend but usually it is sunny and beautiful in the fall. Looks like you had fun with your family and created a memory!!! pj
