My Evening Stitching

Hi Friends♥
With the arrangements & timeline all in place for our Out-The-Back renovation, & work underway, it's been great to get back into some kind of domestic routine... washing, cleaning etc & a bit of evening stitching, yay! The blogging & blog reading has been a bit neglected too, but I'm in a better position to show my face around here a bit more now.

Greens, yellows, oranges, purples & blacks can mean only one thing at this time of year - Halloween! While I'm not big on it myself, it's a bit of fun to do something for it... I just love these designs & this one is coming along beautifully. Started it on Sunday & just doing a bit each evening...
This design features in 'Cross Stitch Crazy' magazine (from a couple of years ago)... last year I stitched the Moon design that's in the top left corner of the pic... funny how the shading is more clear in a pic than with my own eyes?! Only a miracle will get this design finished before sunset on Saturday, but heck, I'm happy with any progress at all;)

This weekend, I really need to get MissPfaff set up somewhere, so I can start work on my SSCS main gift... time is closing in on me to get it made, eek! However, I know that once I get started, I'll be fine.

Sorry to my PYT participants, for no linky this fortnight - but never fear, I will have one up for the 2nd Tues of November so you can share your EPP then!

 Thanks for popping in & have a great day xo

Great work on the cross stitch Anthea and good to have you around. Never mind about the PYT - I have not had time to do anything other than my swap flowers anyway. xx

Glad to see you're stitching. I enjoy making fall-ish things, but I don't really do Halloween. Although I guess Halloween is in the spring in your part of the world. Hmmmm.... Hope Miss Pfaff isn't getting too lonely.

Hello Anthea,

Hope you have it finished by Halloween. Halloween seems to be getting more popular here in Australia.
Have a lovely weekend.

Happy days.
Bev.
