Stitchy weekend

It has become a habit - every third weekend of the month is a stitching marathon. It all started with Joysze of Random Ramblings.   Many moons ago she has invented International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW) and has been a wonderful hostess since.

I had so many stitching plans for this weekend but after all I worked on only one project, Halloween House by Ursula Micheal.


I'm very pleased with progress I've made (scroll down for the 'before' picture).  I think that actually I can finish this piece way before Halloween if I can keep up this speed.

So long my friends,
Evalina

  2. Gosh Evalina, I've got a cross stitch santa that's 75% complete since the 90's! Now you've given me new hope. :) Love the Haloween house, can't wait to see the finished product.

  3. Yes, I like this. The little ghost is so cute and am wondering if there are more creepy critters to appear when complete ;)
