Trick Or Treat Stitchy Finish!

 Good morning!
The 2 Judith Kirby Halloween Houses are all stitched and displayed! I started them a year ago last August :)

 I had a hard time trying to find a way to display these that I really liked .. I bought things and took them back .. made something that didn't work .. but yesterday I was at Hobby Lobby and saw this Jack o Lantern  trick or treat sign .. 7.99 plus 40% off.. :)

( It looks kind of crooked in the hanging photos but it is straight.. Just hard to get good pics!)

So .. my husband cut a board for underneath the stitched piece and mat piece of black homespun check on the bias ..of course! Then drilled 2 holes in the board and 2 holes in the trick or treat sign ..added wires to connect .. then glued the homespun piece to the board..
 Isn't it c-u-t-e!
 I stitched it on tea / coffee dyed light blue evenweave..
 For now it is hanging from the shelf in the kitchen .. not sure where it will end up but I couldn't wait to show you!

 If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

Thanks so much for all your visits and sweet comments !
Linking to these fabulous parties !

That is just too adorable! I made the first half and already have that displayed but now am wishing that I had made the other half as well. Your display is spot on!!

You couldn't have found a more perfect way to hang this to show it off. It is my favorite one. Although I love them all. What a great look!!

This is probably my favorite of all your Halloween stitching! And what a wonderful way to display it! Love this piece.

Another fantastic finish, Priscilla. I dearly love this design, too--it is so classic and brings back wonderful memories of trick-or-treating as a child :)

Love this so much. I have been searching for the patterns for a very long time, no luck! Any suggestions for sources other than ebay? Your work is so beautiful. I just wish I had a tenth of your talent!
