The People's Choice SAL

   Jo is always hosting the most interesting SAL. This one is on the first Saturday of the month and will change theme's every month. The first one is Halloween. I am not into Halloween, but have a few projects stitched. (I also have a rather large piece that I want to stitch, but not this year.)
Haven't finished anything fall like, so I am just reposting this little thing I made for my daughter last year.

So Close to a Finish!

This blue stripe is killing me! The Neon Rays twist and turn and I can see my canvas. And I am not sure about the stitch used for the stars....I think I will add little star sequins as I think I have some in my stash.
But I won't look until I get the blue done! And no new project until this one is stitched. Finally finished into a hat is another story....

Another Butterfly

I have started stitching a little each day on pieces that have been sitting in my sewing bag for ages. I figure doing 12 stitches (or a few more) will help me move it from my stash pile to my done pile. This piece is more difficult than I thought, but I do love it.
I may need to over-dye it when I finally finish stitching it.

Mill Hill Monday

I was able to get a little stitching done on this butterfly. I think I am ready for beads, but I need to check.
Then what will I do with it? Card maybe?

Reptiles for September

Here is where I left off in August:
 And here is where I stopped for September.
I think I was able to stitch 1200 stitches, but it is hard to tell.

This piece called for Onyx by Weeks Dye Works but I was using Slate Roof from Victorian Motto Sampler Threads. That is the middle bird and the little bit to the left. But I thought it might too brown so I tried Smoke from Crescent Colours which is the bird to the right.
What do you think? I can't really tell the difference. So I stitched some more...
I don't like it. I think I need to find some black and use it. They just look too brown.

Mill Hill Monday

I found this while clearing my stitching bag. I have a hard time stitching it on the go as it is on a blue piece of perforated paper. I will put it in my bedroom and stitch on it in the evening.
