Witchie Cross Stitch progress...

I spent a lot of this week making progress on Witchie Renabest. I have posted over on my Spooky Stitchers Sal too, but just in case you missed me there I am posting here also. I am loving working with the colours in this cross stitch, maybe because they are such bright halloweeny colours!

I finished working on the back stitch and have started on the French knots, which I have not done many of before and finding quite fun to do!

French Knots are on Witchie's eyes, shoes and bubbling over the cauldron...... I have just started the brewing bubbles


I love stitching Autumn/Halloween pieces...What are your favourite themes to stitch?

Hope you are all having a lovely week,

see you soon

What beautiful work you do! And what a cute design to stitch; I especially love the little black cat and pumpkin.

My eyes aren't what they were, but I am just now trying to stitch a little pumpkin-head doll...

She's adorable! I love Halloween designs of all kinds-pumpkins, monsters, witches (especially), trick or treaters, etc. I'm not picky!

Priscilla, your stitchie is so cute...I love the little black cat and the little spider is pure whimsy. Sometimes I have a hard time with french knotts...but I love them, yours are looking perfect.
Right now I'm enjoying samplers, for me I find them relaxing...happy stitching..hugs, Linda

Hi Priscilla, just stopped to say hi...hope all is well.

How are you coming with your witch...she is too cute. Our SAL group is ready for another project, we were going to stitch a sweet sampler but changed our minds. We are in the hoiday mode and are going to do a Halloween one...Kindred Spirits. I just ordered the floss yesterday and we are all anxious to start stitching:). I'm kinda sort of thinking of joining your stitch a long...I like the idea of stitching at my own pace and love Hallween stitchies too...I love too many thngs:). Take care and hello to your family....hugs, Linda
