First, the winner is Bea.  She revealed that she has discovered the joys of Halloween stitching only recently.  As a result, I am inclined to legitimize her status as a Halloween lover with a reasonable stash.  I have even thrown in a bonus chart in addition to the 10 listed, Stacy Nash Primitive Hallows Eve.  Enjoy, Bea!

I also need to apologize for not participating in the Halloween Blog Hop as planned.  I spent the morning at the opthamologist's office where I was given a needle in the eye - not quite the Trick or Treat activity I had expected.  The rest of the day was spent in dim light with cold compresses and regular applications of artificial tears.

I started my last Halloween project of the year today: Primitive Needle's Follow Me.  At present I've just stitched the base, one side border and a bit of the inscription..

I did finish Hallows Eve which I stitched on Belfast linen in natural Flax, using Pure Palette silks.

I really enjoyed doing Follow Me, it was I think also my first time using silks!

As always, your stitching is wonderful :)

Bea said...

I'm shocked! Thank you very much for choosing me. I hope you've fully recovered - does not sound like a great way to spend a day.

Nice finish!

Congrats to Bea! Be careful now that you have started to enjoy stitching Halloween designs. It's addicting. :)

Congratulations to Bea, I'm so happy I was able to help with her conversion to Spooky stitching too!
Sorry you couldn't take part in the hop, I just added your letter to the list of links.
