Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Halloween Exchange

I participate on the Hooked on Exchanging blog run by the lovely Carol.

For the recent Halloween Themed exchange, I got to stitch for Carol herself!  I knew I had to do something special given all her work on keeping great exchanges organized.  It’s a job!

The 15-sided biscornu caught my eye a few weeks ago, and here was a perfect opportunity to give the finishing a try.  I chose motifs from Just Nan’s Witch Way (it’s hanging in my hallway after all) and went to work.

Here it is preparing for its cross-country trip:

If you’d like to see its travelling companions, visit Carol’s blog.

I did take some interim pictures and plan to put together a tutorial 🙂
