The Spell is Cast....

 
Just in time for Halloween....

BBD Casting a Spell 1
Boy...do I now love Briwax!

I was able to finish up the stitching this
week and decided to go ahead and
get it ready for Halloween.


BBD Casting a Spell 2
BBD "Casting A Spell"
stitched on 32ct LL Navy Bean
w/recommended threads

I have to be honest....some of these
designs were great to stitch and
some....not so much
Very happy this one didn't end up in limbo.

I didn't exactly finish it as instructed but
I do like the way it turned out.   I think
this one will stay on display all year.

I had to get the sewing machine out this
morning so I decided I would go
ahead get this earlier finish "finished". 

Threadwork Primitives Harvest Moon
Threadwork Primitives "Harvest Moon"
 
I love this design and am glad to
enjoy it for a few more weeks.

  11. Double wows! Both of those are wonderful. Maybe next year I'll get that BBD project done, I have it all kitted up, just never did get started on it. Your finishing might have differed from what they specified, but it still looks wonderful.
