All Hallows' Eve Finish On 9/11

My latest finish came about today as I have managed to misjudge how much fabric was available to me. As consequence, only the middle portion of this project was stitched. I did not feel like stitching the alphabet, as it was over one. I'd like to say that it is because I did not feel like stitching over one, however, it's really just sheer laziness on my part. 

Well, at any rate, here is my only finish thus far in the month of September 2017:

Design: All Hallows' Eve

Designer: Linda Lautenschlager of Chessie and Me

Fabric: 36 count Vintage Pearled Barley by Lakeside Linens

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Attic Tea, Eiffel Tower, Herb Garden, Lasagne, Old Crow, Teddy Bear, Tortoise Shell, Vanilla Pudding,  Weathered Vine, and Wheatgrass. 

Stitchers' Notes: Began Tuesday, August 22, 2017. Finished Monday, September 11, 2017. All materials pulled from stash. Substituted the called for 36 count Vintage Meadow Rue for the 36 count Vintage Pearled Barley by Lakeside Linens. Stitched with the called fro Belle Soie silks from Crescent Colours. 

As of Thursday, August 24, 2017:

As of Monday, September 11, 2017:
