CJC Day 23 - Waxing Moon's Midnight Manor and a finish!

I've never stitched a Waxing Moon design before, and I was happy to find this one. Midnight Manor is also from the Halloween sale at my LNS in 2012. 

I have a great piece of 28 count variegated dusky blue fabric that I'm stitching on. I received it in a gift exchange and it was a large enough piece that I was able to save half for something else. 

The model:

I don't plan on stitching the upper design, just the lower. And I'm not using all black either. I'm starting to wonder if I have issues with monochromes as I notice I tend to jazz them up a little with colour most of the time. :)

Here's my start:

I'm using WDW Fathom for the house and drive and the ghosts and moon will hopefully be glow-in-the-dark Kreinik. The animals will be black and the trees will be TG Soot. The fence will be WDW Kohl. 

So far it's stitching up easily and I'm looking forward to a Halloween finish!

I also finished Bienvenue:

And made it into a hanging. It's not 100% finished as I need to add a dowel to stiffen the back, but that's a job for DH, so my part is done!

Happy Stitching,
