I've had these three projects ready to put together for a while and today was the day to get them done! These are the Halloween Knob Knockers (AKA Door Hangers) for the Grandkids.
I have already shared the details for the first two so I won't repeat those.
"Frank N Stein"
Stitched on 28 count Raw Opalescent Cashel
Black Spider buttons hold the ribbon
This was a start and finish this weekend. When Nancy and I were shopping at JoAnn's she mentioned using the saucers for the clay pots to make ornaments. I really liked the idea and this is what I came up with. This is only the first of many I want to do this way. They would also make great pin cushions. I have a idea in my head for using the clay pots also, if they come out as planned it will be another really fun, cute finish.
Stitched on 28 count Linen
with sassy strings "Pumpkin", Carrie's "Pina Coloda"
I have been a good girl (sort of) and got more done on both "Witches" and the "Stocking". I should have "Witches" done in plenty of time for this Halloween.
"When Witches Go Riding" 9-19

When I get tired of working on the stocking all I have to do is look at the pictures of this sweetie and I'm inspired all over again. She really does have to have a special stocking for Santa to fill. Here is where I am now with the stocking.
The Candy Canes on the tree were a real PITA and I'm so glad they are finished. This week I'll work on the bottom of the stocking before starting on the Fairy. At this rate I should be done in plenty of time for Christmas. I still haven't figured out how I'm going to line it since there are no instructions for doing that but I think it will hold up better over the years if it has some kind of lining.
That's it for this update. Hope I didn't bore you to tears LOL.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching and have a great week.
