Some Witchy Stitching...


Good morning friends!
Isn't this just the cutest Halloween piece!?!

Last year I had finally finished the 2 Halloween houses from Judith Kirby and found this hanging decoration at Hobby Lobby to hang it on...With that in mind .. my daughter stitched this With Thy Needle and Thread ..Bobbing for Pumpkins .. We found this sign at Michaels.. Her husband cut a board and drilled holes to attach the wires that were used to hang it from the sign.. I mounted the stitching on sticky board .. and then mounted black check homespun on sticky board.. glued them together and then glued the board to the back of the sticky board covered with homespun..
It is stitched on our regular tea/coffee dyed 28 count evenweave ..with all the called for "fancy flosses"
It is fabulous and I am sure she can't wait for Halloween decorating to hang it up!
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 ! :)

Both finishes are pretty awesome! I especially love the Halloween houses under the pumpkin sign. With the patterns being so rare, I will just admire yours. :)

LOVE this one (and your last year's piece...that is the first picture of yours I ever saw). I have to run to Michaels and try to get one of these wood pieces.

Priscilla, do you know where I can find the Judith Kirby patterns? Are they out of print? I checked a couple of on line stores and can't find it. Thanks
