October Stitching – The Finishes!

I had a pretty awesome October as far as Halloween-themed stitching goes!  First, the finishes:

Blessed by by Enchanting Lair on 16 ct.  Silkweaver Green Apple opalescent Aida using custom colors and more blending filament than the law should allow!

 

Witchy-Washy by Raise the Roof Designs om 28 ct. white opalescent Lugana using  Crescent Colours Caribbean Waters for the bloomers and Sunflower for the stars and moons, ThreadWorx purple, black Treasure Braid for the boots and recommended DMC’s for everything else.

Something Wicked by La D Da on 32 ct. French white Belfast using recommended DMC’s

Blessed Be by Plum Pudding Needleart on 32 ct. Silkweaver Castle View Belfast using Crescent Colours and Dinky Dyes silks

I had two other finishes this month but with Christmas close by I can’t share them. 😉
