The People Chose Witches


This SAL is all about what you want to see on the blog. Each month I ask for suggestions for themes and then put them up to the members of the IHSW Group on FB to vote for their choice. This is what they have chosen:

May - Witches
June - Beads
July - Pets

Did anyone guess that this would be a favourite theme for me?

Here's a nice collage I put together in 2017 for W on The Alphabet Club (the predecesssor to The People's Choice):

Here's my Mischief of Mice including The Witchy Sisters

This is the amazing Raven from Nora Corbett's Bewitching Pixies series:

My finished Oberlin Samplers Witches:

The central blocks from Halloween at Hawk Run Hollow:

And now it's over to you.  All you have to do is make a post on the theme of Series of Witches, mention The People's Choice SAL (you can copy the picture I used at the top of this post and in my side bar) and my blog. Please link up using the URL of the actual blog post, not the home page of your blog.   I look forward to seeing what you all post.



Finally, I need your suggestions for the next poll.  Anything, no matter how obscure, weird or random will go into the poll.  Keep the theme suggestions to a single word or two - so you could have Cats, or Green, or Holidays, or Warmth etc.   Really anything which could be illustrated in cross stitch.

I knew you'd have a lot of witches but didn't realise quite how many, and in so many different styles. Good to see the JN witchy sisters are keeping an eye on the proceedings! :)

So many witches!!! The Oberline witch is a stunner!! The linen it's on is just gorgeous! Love all your Halloween stitching!

All the witches must love staying at your house! Great projects.

That's a great collection of witches, but I am not surprised you got so many! I didnÄT do too bad myself this month I think.

Love all the witches!

Carol said...

Wow! So many witch finishes. I'm trying to think, but I can only picture one that I've stitched in all these years. I like yours as most of them are cute, not scary :)
