Rog

I recently mentioned that I put some work in on Halloween project. Gosh, I love this project. 

This is how far I got last year before I put it away for the season:


Here it now, after 2 days' worth of work:


Can you tell I took these pics in different rooms of my house? Last year's pic, taken in the living room, looks much "warmer" than this year's snapshot, taken in the office/den/craft room.

I was dreading having to stitch the words "haunted house" because, to be frank, the lettering gets a bit monotonous. But I made myself do it one afternoon (while watching an episode of Leave it to Beaver about, ironically, a haunted house), and I am glad I did. Now I have mostly short words left. Mostly. "All Hallow's Eve" is going to take a bit of time. BO-RING. ;)

Here are a few close-up pics for you.


 

Rog. I left off at "frog" but didn't do the "f" yet. I plan on doing that soon. Maybe today, even. I am supposed to be working on my Christmas in July Stitchalong projects, though, so I may force myself to finish an ornament for that before I do this.

What are you working on today?  Anything Halloween-related? I'd love to see it if you are!

I love this! I'm working on Lizzie Kate's Christmas ABC and I couldn't agree more about the lettering. Last night I made myself finish "Gingerbread"...boring!

This will be so cute when it's finished. Keep up the good work!
