Spooky Counting Down
I've been counting down to Hallowe'en with my Primitive Hare Spooky Countdown tree this year. Here are a few photos of the tree so far:
All the ingredients laid out ready to start
The scrapbook paper I used to make the markers from
First Eight Days
Days Nine to Thirteen
Regular readers may recognise that tree from last year's Advent Calendar!
I have been stitching away in black the rest of the time, on the Blackbird Designs Spell of the Moon which Kaye sent me recently. I finished the black this afternoon during a Game of Thrones marathon TV catch-up session for my husband's birthday!
There is some grey and a yellow moon to add as yet. It's a nice fun design although quite large on 32count. Too big for an ornie really. I bought a little canvas and easel during the week which I can stretch the fabric round and display it like that. I like the way the border varies, it's not all the same zig-zags all the way round. Much more interesting to stitch,
Finally, it's time to sign up for the Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop. Just leave a comment on this post (making sure I can contact you via email) and then a few days before the 31st October I will contact you with a letter to display on your blog on the 31st along with some Hallowe'en stitching of your own. I will list all the blogs in order and people will hop around collecting the letters to SPELL out the Mystery Phrase.
To see how it all works, check out last year's Blog Hop here
