Hello stitching friends....
Last year I joined the Halloween ornie SAL group ... And sorry I am on my iPad right now so don't know how to post links :(. There is however a quick button down the side bar .. It's the ghost :)
Well as I say I joined last year and thought oooh marvelous, stitching Halloween things. Here in UK Halloween is not that much of a thing, but I wanted to do it anyway. Maybe one day to have enough things for a little Halloween tree! Ha ha yes just like you Frances!!
Here is what I stitched....
It's designed by David Morrill from The Stitchworks and is called "Witchy Lou". I found it in my digital copy of Just Cross Stitch magazine issue Sept/Oct 2013.
I stitched it on herbal tea stained 18 count Aida, I used DMC threads with orange and black beads.
So that is my witch stitch for January.
Looking ahead, February is skeletons...this could be fun, maybe have to dig out some black fabric to stitch on.
Yes I am on my iPad again ..... I am so rubbish writing my blog on here. See I cannot sit in my stitching chair due to my knee being so bad and painful. I am on our sofa, it has a reclining action and means I can put my legs up.
And as I am not in my stitching chair or corner I feel so lost... Nothing is to hand and I have to keep bothering Han to get or find things for me. It's a real pain being laid up and not really being able to walk. I have been taking pain killers today as its so bad... And yes I am fed up beyond belief that this is happening to me.
Enough drivel... Trying to stay positive ....
Ha ha guess what... I hope this post turns out ok.. See I am doing the draft on my iPad and then Han is going to open it on my PC and make all the little adjustments that I cannot. Oh you know like... The font, the colour... The photo size.. And then hopefully my post will look acceptable!? Thank you Han :)
I naturally wanted to post more today... Ho hum! There is always tomorrow!
Happy stitching to you all
