Halloween Stitching

 Happy Halloween !
I am excited I actually finished this before Halloween ! This is the collection of Lizzie Kate Tingles patterns ..I had this idea to display it on picket fence boards and it actually looks cute ! I painted the fence light gray then used brown stain over the top.. I added a burlpa piece threaded throught the panels and a burlap bow with some Fall berries..
 This is a big long stitching piece , and I am really not into frames on the wall.. So I got 3 picket fence pieces from Home Depot.. used 2 small pieces of wood across the back to hold them together with screws. I had the nice man at Home depot cut about 5 inches off the bottom of each fence piece.. I also bought a thin piece of wood that he cut to the size I needed to mount the stitching on. All of this was under $12.00 and  I still have a big piece of the thin wood left .

 Right now its in the foyer ..not sure where it will end up..
 I used magnets on the wood and a long piece of sheet metal on the back of the stitching. I have the Christmas Lizzie Kate patterns that I hope to get stitched before Christmas so I can use the fence for both !

I love how it turned out !
Yesterday these zinnias came out of my garden ..
This morning there were snow flurries !
Hope you have fun Halloween celebrations !!!
