Done, Da-done, Done, Done!

Midnight Manor is complete!

This was a very enjoyable stitch. I think if I'd left it monochrome I wouldn't have been as happy with it, but using different colours for all the different elements really helped make it fun. My floss use is:

Manor: almost 1 skein WDW Fathom and the camera doesn't pick up what a nice colour it is
Trees: slightly over 1 skein TGA Soot
Animals: few threads of WDW Mascara
Jack O'Lantern: few threads of WDW Jack O'Lantern
Gate: 1 skein WDW Kohl - this has a nice black/gray pattern that again is difficult to see in the photo. 
Ghosts and Moon - 2 strands leftover Kreinik #4 GITD thread

I was thinking about making this into a pillow, but it's so cool I feel like I want to frame it to protect it now. A pillow might show off more of the nice fabric though. 

And so far the consensus is LK's Dog Lessons for the next one. I think that's a good focus project, but I may touch on the others as I stitch it. Thank you for letting me know your opinions, I'm always interested to know what you're thinking!

We have a trip today, 2 hours each way so I may bring Box of Delights since I can stitch the boxes without a pattern and that will mean carting around less stuff. Or I can bring my bag of DMC to bobbinate. :)

Happy Stitching and thank you for all the encouragement!



  1. Congrats on the awesome finish! And thanks for the floss list; I agree, it's much nicer with the different colors than just one. Enjoy your trip today, stitching or bobbinating all the way :-)

  2. Terrific finish! I really like your added colours - adds that little extra zing to the final picture.

    1. Thank you, I'm really happy with how it turned out.

  3. Congrats! And just wow at changing the colors around! I'm such a chicken when it comes to that. I do agree you should definitely frame it, especially since you used all that really nice thread!

    1. Thanks, and I think it's the best choice. I was too, and I admit I always ask for help with colours since I know my colour sense isn't great.

  4. Fantastic finish! Love the idea of adding some colour - it looks great!
    Hugs xx

  5. congrats on a fantasic finish, love it

  6. Awesome - congrats on the nice finish!

  7. Congrats on the fantastic finish!!:)

  8. Great finish Tiff, love all your thread choices!

  9. Looks great! I definitely would frame this one. Love those pumpkins!

  10. Yaaaaay hooray for the finish (a bit late lol)! Your color changes are great and make it all yours~ I swear that GitD thread is the most amazing invention ever. And bobbinating is my favorite thing in the world; I could do it happily all day.
