WIP's and a JCS Halloween Mag Giveaway!

Edited to add: Magazine Winner is Leila!

Happy Fall everyone! I know I have been a terrible blogger but unfortunately life gets in the way. It especially got in my way with MD appointments and work! But, on the upside I have been stitching, slowly but surely. Perhaps I will finish something in the not so distant future! I know-it would be shocking right? LOL

This is Where My Flowers Blooms by Blackbird. When I last posted I had put in the blue the pattern called for and hated it. Reminded me of a baby for some reason and y'all know I get enough babies at work! So lots of reverse stitching later I finally found a color I could live with, thanks to stepping stone from Crescent colors. So I am happier with it, I started work on one of the trees on the side of the house and took it out not once but three times-yikes! So, I am going to step away from it a bit. Don't you think it looks better?

This is Elenor Ferrow 1842 by Shakespeare's Peddler. I love it! It has been a joy to work on. I am using the recommended fabric which is 32 count natural Belfast and GAST colors. This is what it will look like when finished.

Now, last but not least, I have a 2011 JCS Halloween ornament magazine to give away. I have an extra one I don't need and if you are interested then please leave me a comment to this post only. I will draw a name on Halloween. So though it won't help you this year, it will certainly help next! As always, thanks for stopping by!

Hey Miss Sharon! Nice to see you and hope all is well. I did see your comment on FB too.
Love the Halloween stuff and thanks for the opp to win the magazine.
Hugs!
PS-you reminded me to put out a Halloween design I made a few years ago that's tucked away in a drawer.

I think the change looks more cohesive. The blue was a bit jarring.

Count me in for the magazine please. I wasn't able to grab one myself.

Karoline said...

They are both looking lovely, please put my name in your giveaway.

I agree, the blue had to go but you picked a nice alternative color :o)

Ohhhh, I love that sampler!

Nice progress! Lovely stitching.

I'll pass on the giveaway with thanks--a very generous friend gave me her spare copy. :)
