I seem to be in the mood for two things lately: cross stitch and Autumn. More specifically, I am in the mood to stitch up some Halloween goodies. It happens every summer. Once the 4th of July has passed, I am ready to move on to chilly nights and frosty mornings. I am ready for fall. :)
But it's not fall. However, that doesn't mean I can't work on some Halloween stitching. The piece I am showing you today is a WIP from several years ago. (I want to say 2006, but don't quote me on that.) I usually get the itch to stitch on it each summer, but end up putting it away after just a few week's worth of work. Hmmm. I'd like to break that cycle this year and actually be able to display this beauty come October, but with all the other things I need to work on, I don't know how successful I will be. ;)

Poor thing, she hasn't a head.
Crescent Colours are so fun & pretty, don'tcha think? I love overdyed floss.
Her pretty dress will eventually be accented with beads. I just love the colors.
My favorite part, though, isn't the pretty dress. It's the treat sack.
Seriously! How cute is that?!
So, please wish me luck with my goal of completing this Halloween Fairy this year. It would be nice to add her to my collection of Halloween stitchies. :)
