Hello everyone! I hope you're having a good weekend. We started off last night with Trunk or Treat at the local elementary school. I think the idea behind it is you take your little children around and people give out candy from their trunks instead of taking them out on Halloween night.
I have a feeling that as DD ages it will be Trunk or Treat and Halloween every year. :) For now she's small enough that we'll just go around our neighbourhood on Halloween night.
There were a lot of fun activities and snacks, etc. in the school gym, and I think DD was a little overwhelmed, but she still enjoyed herself. Her costume is this:
She chose it herself and she's a dinosaur, in case you can't tell if it's a dragon or dinosaur. She has a toy dinosaur with almost exactly the same colouring, it's really interesting actually how that worked out.
On to stitching!
Halloween is creeping up on me and I still have 8 photos to show! Let's start with:
24. Boo House
I had to go back and fill in some path that I had missed, and I managed to complete another colour. This is looking pretty unlikely to be completed by Halloween since I've gone full steam ahead on Somebunny. :)
25. Durene Jones Bat in the early morning:
26: Mid afternoon
27. Early evening
I think I will go ahead and complete this one by Halloween to have one less WIP. I'm still debating if I will stitch the white in the eyes and fangs or leave it unstitched. Jo mentioned a variegated thread for the background instead of using 4 different oranges. It's a good idea, but I didn't have a thread I liked enough to use. Also, it would be interesting to compare if it's faster to stitch each stitch individually with a variegated thread and no counting or stitch as charted and be able to work across a row.
28. Midnight Farm by Mill Hill - finished in 2013
29. and the GITD thread
I really enjoyed stitching this one and it was one of the few finishes and stitching I did in 2013. We moved that year, and I was pregnant, plus work was kind of a nightmare with some new hires. So I'm impressed I finished this one at all. It stays up all year roun. :)
I hope you all have a great weekend, and see you soon for the next post!
