Halloween Stitching

I finished Midnight Jack from the latest Issue of Prim Stitching and Punch Needle.  
I changed it to all overdyes:  Black Crow, Loden and Fragrant Cloves.  
I did order the charms used in the pattern from Fallen Angel Charms.  
I was at the Stitching Bee last Saturday and got Kathy Barricks...
 I saw this on her blog and I love tombstones on patterns along with black pumpkins.  
I tried to get the fabric when I got the pattern but, she didn't have any.  
I am doing it on 40 ct as the pattern but, I did some dying on the Explaire that I had.  
The spray bottle left it a little splonchy but, I kind of like it.  
 It was an incredible busy week, 
Monday:  Bob's Aunt's funeral
Tuesday:  4 hour meeting after work
Wednesday:  normal
Thursday:  Took MIL it an eye appt. in Green Bay
She has wet Macular Degeneration and had an injection in her eye. OUCH!
The eye is numbed but, still OUCH!!

Should be a calmer week but, I have a continuing ed program next Saturday.  
Have a great week!
Keep on Stitching!!


  1. Cute finish, and a great new project to stitch.
    I hope your week calms down some.

  2. I like the fabric splotches and all, makes it look very rustic. Cute finish on Midnight Jack too!

  3. Congratulations on your Midnight Jack finish! I look forward to seeing your new start on your dyed fabric.

  4. What a great little design. I do like you new chart and the fabric looks good to me.

  5. I think the Halloween design will be great on the splotchy fabric! Can't wait to see pics!
