Happy October!

We have officially transitioned from summer to all Halloween and fall decor in our household and I could not be happier! 

I showed you my new upstairs loft shelves a couple weeks back where I went with a more muted fall palette: Loft Fall Decor  Every other area of the house is much more traditionally decorated.

As always, my Lizzie Kate Halloween Rules tombstone is front and center. If I could stitch this again, I would in a heartbeat. It's still one of my favorites!

The piece was stitched on Vintage Country Mocha Lugana using DMC threads. I matted it with tan and black homespun fabric and mounted it to the front of this pre-lit wood tombstone I found at Joann's a few years back. All I did was add some garland and a couple Dollar Tree bats.

After I stitched Halloween Rules, I stitched up Lizzie Kate's Boo Club since I had all of the threads out. 


Like Halloween Rules, Boo Club was stitched on the same fabric and matted with the same homespun before being mounted to this whitewashed board from Michaels. 

Upstairs, I decorated my old window with some Halloween garland from Michaels, and hung my Bobbing for Pumpkin witches by Brenda Gervais in the center. This is the ever-so-popular finish inspired by Priscilla Blain a few years ago: https://priscillas2000.blogspot.com/2017/09/some-witchy-stitching.html  After I saw Priscilla's, I just knew I had to run out and get the sign to finish mine the same way.

Bobbing for Pumpkins is accompanied by Lizzie Kate's Tingles that I stitched and finished last year. It's mounted to a grey-washed board I found at Michaels (although I did dry-brush some white over the board to lighten it a bit).

And new this year is Ye Olde Crow Sampler by Heart in Hand stitched entirely with Onyx from Weeks Dye Works. It's stitched on Vintage Country Mocha, matted with that same homespun, edged with black cording, and mounted to a pedestal frame I found at Michaels this year.

My Halloween tiered-tray is still a little bit of a work in progress while I work on stitching up some smaller pieces, as well as the Halloween tree I bought this weekend with the intent of decorating it with some stitched Haloween ornaments.

Some other non-house decor stitchy finishes this week include:

Lizzie Kate's "Eek, Boo, Hiss" finished as a trio of ornaments

The Scarlett House's "Pumpkin Spice Everything" finished in a barnwood frame

Hands on Design's "Well-Rounded Perennial Pinwheels August" finished as a tart

and Country Cottage Needleworks' "Pumpkin Cottage" finished as a mounted frame

Your fall and Halloween d├ęcor looks fabulous. Love your Olde Crow piece! What is the size of the pedestal frame you mounted it to? Did it come black or did you paint? Love the Well Rounded in the tart!
