A Peek

I promise, I did not think I had to pretend to be dead to participate in this RR! Sorry not to have been too talkative, hopefully I will be able to participate more now. :)

I forgot to take a pic of the fabric for my piece. You'll all be seeing it anyway eventually, right? It's sort of a no-color, every-color mix Solo by Silkweaver. I bought it years ago, and finally found a use for it!

I just wanted to give a little peek at what I'm stitching for Ulla.

Like Ulla, I love pumpkins, but I found my stash was mostly Jack-o-lanterns. This little fellow is part of a trio I took out of a larger piece by A Stitcher's Hand. I believe that company is now out of business.

I pulled out ALL of my Halloween stash, and have big plans for some spooky S.E.X. as the RR continues... Plum Street Samplers has a great new one, have you seen it?

Cheers - or shivers,

Ulla's RR

Here's my pumpkin RR which I sent to Shelley last week. I decided to choose two 32ct amber linen because I want to finish them as a two pillow. My theme is pumpkins so you can stitch anything with pumpkin on it. It could be fallish or halloweenish, it's stitchers choice. Stitching area is 58x58. To my area I stitched part of 4 My Boys' Autumn Splendor chart.

I haven't heard from......

Hi guys, can Ulla and Shelley let me know have you sent yet? I'd also like if you all can kinda keep your blog up to date? I know most of you do, but since I have had previous problems with another RR, I keep track of everybody that way.
And, most of all, please don't hesitate to email me. I'm very excited about this RR. It is gonna be so cool!
Vonna, I've got your's in the frame and ready to go!
Boo to you!

Edgar, Your RR arrived

at my house today and is even nicer in person. I love the fabric and the design, now, what to do, what to do!!!

Has everyone mailed?

Has everyone mailed out their linens? Just comment if you have! I have sent to Ulla yesterday. I'm very excited to get my first round!

Terry's RR

Hi Terry! I just wanted to post a quick note to let you know I received your RR in the mail today. It's gorgeous! Now... I just have to pick the perfect design for it :)


The sky's the limit!

You can stitch funny, scary, halloween related items in each room, if you want a pumpkin on a chair, go for it! Witch? go for it! Bones? Perfect! Any Halloween critters is fine!
I'll have to check out that issue!

Halloween Stitchers... Have you seen....

.... Nora Corbett's stunning new Halloween Fairy in the new issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework??? Just got mine yesterday and may have to drop EVERYTHING to stitch her up! Check it out! My scanner is down, but maybe I can get DH to scan it tonight and post a photo!

Mine is in the mail today!

Ulla, I mailed mine today! The way mine is set up is: everyone can choose a room to stitch, or someone can choose the roof section and sky area to stitch! I will add the tombstones later with everyone's initials and the fence once I get it back! Please stitch your name in the room that you stitch in. Please make it small as not to overpower everyone's wonderful stitching!

I'm glad this is up and running!

Stitching Vamp Queen Donna!

As finished as it gets.... for now -

Here is how my RR is leaving my clutches -

I still want to get something in the lower left corner and some spot stitching - hex signs ?? - something scattered about - I am pretty happy with the way the little quote looks - after frogging out some really sucky letters and floss - This looks way better - IMHO.

Vonna's RR finished and to be mailed to Donna

WHEW! The majority of this weekend was spent stitching this RR...I finally slipped the last stitch in pumpkin face just a few short minutes ago! Thank heaven it is i finished!

Here is my layout to date - graciously held outside by my daughter Katie:

This is an inside shot - thus a bit darker:

I used primarily Blackbird Designs for this one
(the Trix or Treat Crow, the pumpkin verse and the Jack-o-lantern is BBD. The tree/cat/pumpkin is Plum Pudding Needleart- portion from Salem Inn design)
I can sleep easy tonight knowing its packed and waiting mailing to Donna tomorrow.
I guess my "theme" is antique sampler...but really anything will do there are squares on each side of the crow and three at the top and three at the bottom for a total of I guess that means I'll have to stitch another block when it gets home...right now my brain ain't computin' so there ya have it!
Now to start my Summer House Exchange....argh! Too many deadlines!!!
HUGS to all Witchy Stitcher's...I think today I may have to change the "w" to a "b" to suit my mood! LOL!

Hannah, My RR is being

mailed first thing in the morning!! I, too, am sending it priority mail. Let me know if you have any questions..

Mailed mine to Edgar

I mailed my Haunted Halloween Neighborhood off to edgar today... I used Priority Mail, and since mail is very fast between NH and SF, CA anyhow, it should be there very soon ;-) I cannot wait to see this when it gets home!

Finished my part of my Neighborhood!

I finished my part of my Haunted Halloween Neighborhood tonight :-) Tomorrow I shall sit down and write my introduction letter and instructions, and will mail this off to Edgar on Saturday... I cannot wait to see the rest of these RR's now!

Finished the center section

and it is probably all I will get done before I send it out. The border will have to be finished when it gets back to me. :). there are buttons to put on around the lettering, but that will be done when it is back too. I will probably mail it out to my person on Monday, after I get it ironed and some stuff written up.

My Halloween RR

is coming along finally. I've gotten most of the house done, there is still a spooky tree to stitch along side the house. There are 4 squares above and below the house for everyone to stitch on :)..

My Halloween Neighborhood

I have finally started my RR - here is the first two nights' work. I noticed my theme over in the sidebar is not fully correct. My theme is a Halloween Neighborhood... I am not going to block of squares, they are too limiting. Rather four people stitch in the row I am in, and four below it... I will make those directions clearer on an instruction page. If you cannot find a Halloween house, an autumnal house will work just as fine ;-) My fabric is Enchanted Fabrics 32 ct Stormy Night Belfast Linen.

She is really starting to look like something -
