Another Start, Another Finish

Morning folks!

At the end of each month I usually post about the stitching progress made on my Challenge pieces. But for the second month in a row there has been none.

However, May was not all wasted as I had a few new starts and finishes (as shown two posts ago) along with this cheeky one which slipped in towards the end of the month:

Lizzie Kate Boo Club - Halloween
Stitched on 16ct Lime over-dyed aida by 2 over 1
Stitch count 78 wide by 38 high 
Started - 23rd May 2016
Finished - 31st May 2016
Total stitching time - 7 hours 15 minutes

Again, I made a couple of small alterations, namely the buttons, and the cream in the border being replaced with E940 Glow-in-the-dark. I intend to make Halloween, and the accompanying Ghost, into a double sided hanging ornament. But that won't be quite yet.

In June I am hoping to return to my "normal" stitching routine (i.e. working on and finishing some Challenge pieces, stitching a Christmas ornament and making progress on Sherlock) without the temptation or distraction of any more new starts. I may even finish some pieces from my Box of Shame. But we'll see.....

Bye for now,
Rachel x

Great finish! I love your fabric choice and great idea to use glow-in-the-dark thread. It's so fun with Halloween designs.

I love this piece, it looks so great on the green fabric, just the perfect choice for it. A double-sided hanging ornament sounds very good for the finishing.

Love it Rachel and the Glow in the Dark floss was a great idea! A double sided ornament is an awesome idea (one I will be stealing!).

Heather said...

Cute finish :). The buttons remind me of ghost eyes :)

I've got way behind on my goals too! Oh well I'm having fun with life instead. Love your Halloween finish though.
