In my continued attempt to decrease the contents of my Box of Shame, I have yet another four finishes. These are all Halloween pieces stitched in 2016 and are all finished off in my usual way.
For Ghost and Halloween from Lizzie Kate's Boo Club I found some lovely Ghost backing fabric on ebay in purple, orange and green (as yet I don't have anything to go on the green but I'm sure that will soon change!) Rather than matching barley twist cord I decided to use black to make them look a bit more Halloween-ish. Here they are before and after:
I also found some Spooky Eyes fabric from the same ebay seller in orange, yellow and green, although again do not have anything to go on the green yet. These Halloween charts are designed by Shannon Wasilieff and from a Cross Stitch Crazy magazine:
I'm really pleased with how effective the backing fabrics are, although not so pleased with the actual finish of the hat as the corners are all wrong so I may redo it at some point..
I do apologise if you are bored of all of my ornaments being the same but it's a process and result I'm very comfortable with. I suspect it's almost become my trademark! Anyway, I'd rather they all be finished the same than sit neglected. Agree?
