FLASHBACK Friday !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another week has flown by and it is Flashback Friday again!

By looking at the pieces that I have stitched you will definitely be able to tell that I am very much an eclectic stitcher. My likes are varied. Everything from the whimsical to the primative to Quaker. The pieces I am showing this time are both Halloween. About two years ago, I decided I had too many Halloween pieces in my collection. I pulled out three and let my 2 sisters and only niece take their choices. Now I realized that I have stitched these two pieces and have one WIP that is Halloween and another ready to go. I guess I just keep finding ones I like.

Trick or Treat Row
by Bent Creek

Stitched on a 28-ct mystery R&R fabric with the overdye colors called for on the pattern. LNS bought the fabric at market and then later after I stitched a couple of things on it we neither one can remember what the fabric is. We think it is something similar to Dark Cappucino. Frame is from local frame shop.

Stitched on 28-ct Heritage Cashel Linen from Picture This Plus using the overdyes that the pattern calls for. Frame is from East Side Moulding.

Still not enough progress on WIP for pictures. Maybe sometime next week.

Last night the LNS owner took myself and 3 others out for dinner to thank us for helping her during our recent Shop Hop. We had a great time. She gave each of us a hand painted Sunflower candy jar filled with Hershey's Kisses and a cross stitch pattern she designed exclusively for us with R&R linen to do it on. The name of the LNS is The Sunflower Seed, hence the sunflower on the candy jar. It took all the willpower I had not to start that design last night when I got home. It would just be another WIP. LOL!!!!!!

Off to get some more stitching done.

Have a great weekend!!!
Happy stitching!!

I love Halloween designs! I just bought The Goblins from Shepherd's Bush. I like to have holiday pieces up on the mantle during the months.
