Work in Progress Wednesday 168

Hi everyone. I hope you're all doing great. Happy early Halloween. I love love love Halloween and this year we're staying home to watch scary movies and hand out candy. I hope we get lots of kids at the house this year. :)

This has grown a bit since last you saw it. Here in this picture, I've done the body of the shawlette/scarf and am now working on the owl border. Again, this is the Hogwarts Express pattern by Susan Ashcroft. I'm using Candy Skein Savory fingering Oatmeal Cookie.

Thanks to those who helped me on Instagram last night in the bead decision. I have these blue beads, and also tan ones and couldn't decide which I liked. Almost everyone picked the blue so that is what I went with. Not the best picture, but you get the idea. Right before I typed this, I finished putting the eyes on all 29 owls.

I'm also still working on my cross stitch Halloween sampler. Unfortunately, I won't be finished by Halloween, but I will keep working on it until I finish it. I love this pattern so so much. This pattern is by the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.


For those interested, Candy Skein October colorway, Candy Corn, will be gone on Friday! Be sure to grab a skein before it goes away.


That's it for me today. I hope you have a fun and safe Halloween.

  5. Hiya - I found your blog through the FreshStitches WIP post and added your blog to my feed. I haven't done any cross stitching or embroidery in MANY years (probably 20 or so), but your Halloween sampler is just fantastic. I wish I had seen it earlier. At any rate, I have pretty much spent my entire day perusing the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery website. I may have also bought the gingerbread pattern and all the stuff to make it =D Thanks for the inspiration - it would be awesome to get back into cross stitch. I would love to have a fallback for my knitting funks.
