Dark October Stitching

 October is the month when I focus on my Spooky Stitching for Hallowe'en.  This year I have chosen my CCN Main Street conversion and just one other piece which covers two goals on my WIPGO Board.

My focus project is Just Nan's Scream House.  Last year I completed the four internal walls and this year I have been working away on the external walls.

These are the first two:


And the next two:


I just have to add a broom to the first wall and then I can cross off a goal on my WIPGO Board.

I continued with the external roof pieces, they are useful for lunch break or bath-time stitching.  Although I do have to remember to leave spaces for the characters.


Once I have completed these four, I have the pumpkins on the internal roof pieces and the floor to stitch.  I looked at the floor chart today and it's a bit more stitching than I remembered!  So I may not complete that this October.  I do want to get this fully finished this year so I'll carry on next month even if something else has to take a backseat.


Finally, this is the last call for participants in this year's Trick or Treat Blog Hop.  I am sure you all know how it works but for those who need a reminder - here's a link to last year's


If you want to take part, just leave a comment here or email me if you are a "no reply" person. I need an email address for you to take part in this hop.  I will be emailing everyone on Friday 29th October, so please be signed up by the end of Thursday 28th.

Dark stitching patterns are superb. Though I don't stitch patterns like these I love to see them.
