It's SAL time.  Interesting line up this time around.  I have finished stitching three Halloween pieces.  None of the are truly finished, not even ironed yet.

A Lizzie Kate - one of three

Same booklet from Lizzie Kate - # 2

I posted this one on Halloween since that is when I finished it.
The other two I finished on Friday.

Now for my big piece 

For the Witchy stitchy competition
(stitch an hour each day and post before and after photos)

I started this piece

A sampler by Long Dog Samplers
Descending Order

ONly I decided to do it in reds.
I've been wanting to do a red sampler but never quite 
found the right piece.  I decided this was the right piece.

Here it is so far.

I am stitching the borders in Heart Throb by Dinky Dyes silks.
When I get to the interiors, they will be done in threadworx.

And that is my stitching for the past 3 weeks.

Now check out the group:

Avis, Claire, Gun, Carole, Sue, Constanze, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Linda, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Hayley, Megan, Deborah, Mary Margaret, Renee, Jenny, Carmela, Jocelyn, Sharon, Daisy, Anne, Connie

Always great stitching to be seen!

Love that you are stitching the Long Dog in red. Great choice! said...

I love your Halloween pieces! Halloween is my favorite holiday. I really like the challenge to stitch an hour a day. That would be a great thing for me to reach for.

I'm still crazy about that Trick or Treat sampler -- would love to know who designed it! I really enjoyed Witchy Stitchy too, and that's why I was able to get so much done this time!

Oh how sweet and timely to have finished these pieces during the challenge. I love them!Also intrigued by your new piece. I just looked through that sampler site and found two projects I would love to do. Their samplers involve a lot of stitches it looks like. Anyway, thanks for sharing and kudos!

Wow! I love the Trick or Treat piece. Eek is fun too. Descending Order is going to be stunning in red. What a good choice! I hope you'll keep us posted on your progress with that one. Are you aware of the Fiber Talk podcasts? ( You might enjoy listening to them. The hosts are very involved in sampler projects at the moment.
