Hallow's Eve

Just in time I have finished Stacy Nash Primitives Hallow's Eve. I finished the stitching last night whilst watching Heroes and made it up into a hanging pillow this morning. I wouldn't normally choose a design like this but I am liking these primitive designs more and more.

Stacy Nash Primitives Hallow's Eve


32 count unknown fabric


DMC


Finished as a pillow.


Started 25th October 2008


Finished 29th October 2008.


I think I shall stitch on A Quaker Christmas tonight. Have you seen Carol's stunning finish?? Tomorrow night I'll do a bit on BBD Blessings and Kind Wishes then not sure about Saturday. Maybe start a PIF gift or a Christmas ornament!

Last night I found I was lucky enough to win Stephanie's contest for the JCS Halloween issue. I feel so lucky to have won this as I didn't buy it when Jayne got it in then wished I had. Thank you so much Stephanie! I am looking forward to receiving it and having a read of it:)

Jess went to one of her friends 18th birthday party yesterday. He had a bouncy castle and a magician! A good time was had by all! This evening she's going to another friends 18th and she's having a meal so she's looking forward to that especially as it's at a TexMex place. Next week she's at another 18th then another in a couple of weeks!

I am still way behind on blogs so apologies if I have not got around to yours. I will try and catch up as soon as I can.

Hugs

Congratulations on your beautiful finish, Sally!
Your Hallows Ewe is very beautiful!!
Thanks for the information, I received this freebie and have been stitching it, though it's time up!!! So I will stitch the rest next year :(
I'm looking forward to seeing your Quaker Christmas, too! :D

I just started looking at Stacy Nash Prim designs in the last few days. They are wonderful designs.

I have a freebie from the SN Yahoo group that I want to stitch up. It is also called Hallow's Eve though a tad different that the one you so wonderfully stitched.

Take Care

Nice finish Sally, congratulations!

A lovely finish Sally, and quick too! I was quite excited to find a post on the San-Man MB recently that this could be downloaded for free! Did you find the other 3 Stacy Nash freebies on the same site? I had already started my Halloween stitching for this year, so will have to save it for another time now, although I've only managed to finish the stitching on one of them and that still needs making up!

Congrats on winning the JCS Halloween issue. It's a good one.

The cushion looks great. You seem to have finshed it very quickly.

I remember all too well the rounds of 18th birthday parties, my daughter seemd to be going to one every other week when she was studying for her A levels. At least it was her and not me paying for the presents which if memory serves correctly was usually alcohol, but then I guess your only 18 once.
