A Halloween XStitch Finish

By the looks of stores, Halloween is just around the corner! So, I thought I had better go ahead and get a jump on a Halloween stitching project AND finish it. This is a pattern in the Blackbird Design's book called, Trix or Treats, that was released a couple of years ago. It is stitched on WDW 30 count Mocha linen - which I absolutely LOVE! This fabric is so nice and I wish the photo could show you just how lovely the color is. It was such a fun piece to stitch since it was all stitched in DMC 310 (black).

Hope you have a fun Halloween project kitted and ready for a needle and thread!

Here's my next project....stay tuned!

Cottage Critter Picture - Part 2

Well, it's not "technically" a "critter" but it's one of those encounters that make you fully appreciate the beauty of God's creations. I don't know if the dragonfly really has a purpose other than to be admired and photographed by me! LOL! I wish you could see the beautiful blue color he has. Of course, he had to be in the direct sun (I guess he realized this was his spotlight moment).
