The Latest WIP

The House On Booberry Lane
The damp chill in the air still has my hands sore and arthritic.  So I am continuing to amuse myself  with very simple cross stitch pieces for the moment.  [Sorry, Martha!]  This whimsical little Halloween piece from Brightneedle fits the bill.

For the most part, I have used Pure Palette silks left over from Primitive Needle's Black'd Skie.  I consulted my handy dandy DMC color chart to make sure my substitutions remained true to the original concept.  I made a few changes, replacing the charted upper story windows with one more to my liking.  If I had it to do over, I'd eliminate that odd little cat flap [?] in the lower left corner of the house.With only the border to finish and some leaves, pumpkins and a black cat to stitch, I'll need another project soon.

If the damp chill and the accompanying stiffness in my hands subsides, it'll be back to the Lady Washington Sampler.  If not, I'll probably work on Primitive Needle's All Hallow's Eve.

This one looks a little Hobbit Holeish to me, if the doors and windows were round!

There's something about tree limbs without leaves that always looks spooky to me. Great stitch.

I always see something different that I have not come across before when I visit here. Hope your hands are not in too much pain today.
