Halloween stitching....

"Boo" freebie from Homespun Elegance
"Wicked" freebie from primitivebettys

I am so ready for fall and stitched up a couple of halloween freebies to add to my collection.  Not sure what is going on with me and water but I had another "accident" and my thread bleed on the Wicked finish.  Oh well....guess it just adds to its "primitiveness".

I am definitely in a "fall" mood and can't wait to dig through my stash to stitch some more.  I will, however, vow to find another "finishing" technique....I think I have made more than my share of mini pillows!  There are so many talented stitchers so I am off to get some ideas I can "borrow" from all of you!

Thanks for visiting....happy stitching.

  1. They're both adorable Karen! I especially like the fall color plaid fabric on the one pillow.

    What do you stuff your pillows with?

  11. Two lovely little pillows with gorgeous Autumnal toned fabrics. I think we all have our own favourite way of finishing and sometimes it's a bit scary to try something different! Thanks for the link for the freebies ~ off to check them out right now xxx

  18. Another two great finishes!! You have a wonderful eye for the right fabric and finishing details. I noticed last week while at a fabric store looking for fabric for MB, that I could get in a lot of trouble there if I just looked around. LOL!! You must have quite a collection in order always have the right stuff!! Good on you!

    I always enjoy making my stitched pieces into pillows too, but need to try something different now and then.
