Fripp and Friends / Part 2

Everyone is still a-buzz from the Fripp trip! We had so much fun laughing, playing games and pranks - but - we DID stitch too! Today, I thought I would share 2 projects I worked on while I was there.
The first project is Blackbird Designs Pumpkin Farm. I started this right before we left and had it finished in no time at all. I love it! The colors are just so pretty and it will be the perfect addition to my mantle this fall.
The next project will be on-going for this year and it is Lizzie Kate's new Halloween Rules. I was a little worried about stitching this piece because the fabric the pattern calls for is more than a little stiff, to say the least! I really, really do hate stiff fabric. But, the color is so different from anything I have so I just bit the bullet and started. I have to admit, I'm not having much trouble and it IS a fun piece to work on. I'm not quite finished with the haunted house but you get the idea.
With today being the last day of February, I must confess, I did not finish Paradise Lost on time. I had set a goal to finish by today and it just didn't happen. I brought it to Fripp with me but I just didn't want to work on such a big project. I WILL finish it and maybe after I stitch a couple of small projects, I'll be ready for some more power stitching on it again.

Until we chat again......

Fripp Island must have some great stitching mojo for you to have gotten all that done in just four days!! I love the Pumpkin BBD, and the Halloween Rules are looking great. The color of the fabric does allow the colors of the floss to pop - good decision.
