Halloween SAL Triple Post

Rachel has organized a Halloween SAL during which all participants will stitch a Halloween project and post photos of their progress throughout the day. I have chosen to finish up a WIP, M Design's Winifred Witch and then, time permitting stitch up Plum Street Samplers' Halloween Greetings as my projects for the day.

And a photo of at bedtime, showing my progress on my next start, Fleur de Boo by Ink Circles. This is stitched on a 30ct loosely woven linen in a color called Midsummer Night using Belle Soie silks Black Crow and Lasagna. Obviously, I didn't get very much done but at least it's a start.
A photo of progress at 6:30pm: All the stitching is done and the piece is assembled, trimmed with home-made braid and a beaded hanger. The back is a simple black moire silk ... I figure this piece is elaborate enough without an ornate backing. I am very pleased with this ornament though it is a bit large. It was charted for 30ct linen and I stitched it on 32ct, so it was originally intended to be even larger

Here is my photo of Winifred Witch as I left it last night. I will be posting photos twice more today. The piece looks tantalizingly close to a finish but I fear there is at least two more hours of stitching to do before I begin the assembly. The sign still needs to be stitched, as does the over-one section in the eyes and the silver streak in the hair and all the back-stitching.
