Halloween Finishes!

I didn't get to stitch much early on this past week but on Thursday I managed to make a start on L*K freebie, Spooky Patch. Friday night I was up all night waiting for someone to sort out the lock on my front door and so stitched the night and the morning away and managed to finish it. I finished it last night by backing it onto to black felt with white velvet ribbon. It's not brillant but it will hang on my cross stitch cupboard door okay.

On Sunday I started and finished Homespun Elegance's Boo Freebie. Again I finished this by backing with black felt and white velvet ribbon. Again not the most brillant of finishes - its a bit wonky especially my cutting but it hangs okay on my cupboard lol.

I have now started my LHN Ornie Merry Skater but haven't done enough for a progress picture but will back later in the week hopefully with it finished.

Until next time, happy stitching

Congrats on your boo-tiful finishes.

Lovely finishes Lesleyanne, I like how you did the pumpkin in a different colour on the second one.

I hate cutting felt by hand with pinking shears, as I never get it straight. I've decided to ask DH for a rotary cutter with a pinking blade for Christmas, which should make a big difference.
