The Overnight Shift On Flashback Friday

This is my weekend for the overnight shift. I generally choose projects that are easy to stitch on and do not require a great deal of concentration. I also have the house fully cleaned, errands completed and meals laid out for the entire weekend. I decided on this project as I am itching to stitch on fall/Halloween related projects. I decided that I am not a fan of this color combination and that I would only stitch a portion of the design. I will probably make turn this into a flatfold or perhaps an oversized ornament. I am thinking that when I go to stitch the entire piece as it, it will probably be stitched on 32 count Belfast linen in Legacy  by Picture This Plus, from their Crystal line with black silk floss. That seems to be my 'go to' for a lot of Halloween pieces.  

Well, as this piece has been waiting to see the light of day for almost 5 years, I guess I better get on with it :). Here it is, #35 from the Bin O'Shame:

Designer: Prairie Moon  (retired designer)

Fabric: Fleur de Luce Hand Dyeds 28 count Monaco fabric in Storm Clouds 

Fibers: Hand Dyed Fibers in Old Maid of the Abyss , Six Strand Regular (discontinued floss line).  Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Blanc.

Stitcher's Notes: Last stitched Thursday, November 4, 2010. Please note that at this time, this chart is not for either sale or trade. When completed, this will be #35 from the Bin O'Shame.

As of Friday, September 4, 2015:

Well, I had best be off. I hope my US folks have a wonderful Labor day weekend. I wish everyone a happy weekend! :)
