~*Several Hours of Stitches*~

Hello Dear Friends!  Oh, I'm so happy to share with you... that I have been able to put in several hours of stitches... and I don't see it stopping anytime soon!
After showing you all my unfinished works... there was no getting around it!  Works need to be finished!
No, I still don't have them finished... but I am working on them.  I do I plan to keep focused on them!
The Halloween Sampler seems to be the most important... and I spent the entire day yesterday working stitches on it... while the kiddo and a friend played Guitar Hero on the Wii (You gotta know how much of a huge help that was to me!)...
 You can't see it all too well here... I know.  It is still to early to share the whole design with you, but it is about 2/3rds stitched.  I have some interesting ideas for the finish too... but will have to see how it all works out.  Hopefully by next week... the pattern will be available to offer.  That is my goal anyway!

I know Halloween will be here before we know it.  I just read from someone on Facebook this morning... that Christmas is only 5 months away... YIKES!  That is too soon!

I also worked on punching up these faces... and have them stained... with ideas for finishes too... but they will have to wait until the Halloween Sampler is done.  Although... Early Work Mercantile updates next week on the 1st... so I better hop to it!
 Wishing you all warm smiles...

  4. So good to see progress on the Halloween Sampler!
    Looking forward to seeing how you finish it.

  5. Oh to be able to stitch for hours at a time! You are too lucky :) The Halloween design looks lovely. Garden Gate is one of my favorite GA colors and it is very striking against the light linen. I can't wait to see the finish.
