This Is Halloween, This Is Halloween! WIP Wednesday


Boys and girls of every age

Wouldn't you like to see something strange?
Come with us and you will see
This – our town of Halloween!


We are big fans of not only Halloween, but The Nightmare Before Christmas in this house. I love the tale of Jack and Sally. When I saw this latest start, I immediately imagined Jack Skellington and Sally ordering one up after a long night of frights on Halloween. This one is a lot of fun to stitch. 

Well, here is what I have so far:




Design: Creepy Cocktails

Designer: Pinoy Stitch 

Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Fog by Picture This Plus from their Crystal (opalescent) line.

Fibers Used:  DMC in 154, 164, 208, 209, 310, 327, 413, 414, 415, 444, 606, 741, 772, 907, 947, 3346, 3706, 3825, 3853 and B5200.

Beads Used: Mill Hill petite beads in #42010 Ice.


Stitcher's Notes: Began Monday, October 12, 2015.



As of Wednesday, October 14, 2015:










Well, I had best be off. Lots to do today and this isn't going to stitch itself, haha! Hope everyone is having a great week! :)
