An Embroidered Halloween...
















I have FINALLY finished my embroidered Halloween picture. I actually finished the embroidery about a week ago but it has taken me this long to finish the frame. I am still not finished with the frame; my goal is to needle felt a couple of candy corns and put them on the frame. Hopefully that will get done before next Halloween! The fabric I used to mount the embroidery on is actually a very rich purple but I think it is looking a little more blue in the picture. I used Mill Hill 4mm glass seed beads on the tree and Krienek Braid number 4 for the sparkle in the moon. This was a lot of fun to stitch, it took me a little longer than I would have liked but I am pleased with the result. On a bittersweet note we lost our barn on our property last night. We had high wind here in Ohio yesterday (remnants of Hurricane Ike if you can believe it) with wind gusts at the property of up to 70 mph. Now the good news is that all that was up was the skeleton of the barn, but it is no more... I'm grateful that it was our half built barn and not someone's house. Hope everyone has a good week!

I like your Halloween pic, especially the moon - no reason, just appeals to me. Sorry about your barn. Glad it wasn't your home (and your sewing stash).
