Halloween Finishes

 Hello Friends!

I've finally gotten around to fully finishing the majority of the Halloween smalls I stitched up this year! It feels good to move them off my pre-finishing table and move on to some Christmas pieces.


This little Ghost came out of one of those Prairie Schooler mini sets. Isn't he the cutest? He's stitched on 32 ct Platinum Lugana using the called-for threads. The cutting board came from Hobby Lobby. It was plain wood so I chalk-painted it black and roughed up the edges. The ghost is matted with homespun fabric and then mounted to the front of the board. I edged the sides with black cording and added this cute Halloween ribbon I found at Joanns.


"Spirits and Spells" by With thy Needle and Thread (Brenda Gervais) was stitched on 28 ct evenweave that I dipped first in purple Rit dye and then again in grey. I used most of the called-for threads. The piece was matted with some Halloween-y fabric and mounted to the front of this barnwood frame from Michaels. I edged the piece with orange cording and added a bow with a pumpkin button center.


"Salem Hill Sampler" by Scarlett House was an impromptu stitch due to the fact that this was fabric I had purchased hoping for a chalkboard tone but it came much more purple than anything else. It screamed Halloween, so --- hence, this piece! It's stitched with DMC using similar colors to the original and finished on a grey-washed easel. I accent the bow with some coordinating embellishments.

I've also been crazy busy in the studio finishing for my awesome clients. I really appreciate anyone who trusts me with their beautiful pieces!
