I do Love a Fall Stitch

Welcome new members!  I'm glad you've joined me.  Welcome to everyone who is already a member and those who visit but, don't join.  Maybe someday I will be able to entice you to join.

 I have been working diligently on L*K Mystery Sampler.  It seems like this last section is taking forever but, I think it is my favorite one yet.  I may have done the candy corn at the bottom in a different order of colors however, I decided to leave it be.  I find the pumpkin-headed cat is very amusing.
 The cadet blue and bullfrog thread beneath the house was suppose to be satin stitched.  In the instructions it says you can do what you feel like.  I felt like doing regular cross stitch because it just lays better, especially where there is longer areas.  I will do the satin stitch around the border where it is called for.  I think this would be good as an individual piece.
 A recap of the other sections.
 I do like the little toothy pumpkin in the top section.  The acorns would make a lovely border in the future.
 As a sneak ornament stitched up for the exchange.  It isn't stuffed or embellished yet in this picture.  It is all done and I'm ready to box everything up to go.  I won't send it on until the end of the month.  I don't want it to get there too soon.  I changed the DMC to Crescent Colors.

Since I am nearly done with the Mystery Sampler, I am just wondering what to do with the pattern....
Thanks for stopping and all the lovely comments.
Keep on Stitching


  1. I have decided to revist Lizzie Kate after watching your WIPS of this Mystery Sampler. Funny how my stash "must have list" has changed over the years.

  2. Fun Halloween stitching! Makes me want to start something Halloween, but I better work on my WIPs and get at least one finished before starting another!

  3. Your LK looks great! That cat is comical!!
