Steampunk Halloween

I am working on a new wall hanging. This one is using Steampunk Halloween.  I wanted to use the yellow tossed print as a square on point and have three strips of the blender fabric as the border but I couldn't figure it out.  So I have opted to use a square in a square instead.  I'll still use the three strips as you can see in the last photo.  I still have a long way to go on this one!




I started this cross-stitch so many years ago!  I find it very difficult to do (I have vision issues).  I finally finished it this weekend.  It will be a little needlebook for my aunt.  The inside is wool with a strip of felt for the needles.

A little sampler and a block


I made this little sampler for my nephew and his wife.  It's their wedding gift but it was a little late-like a year and a few days later.  Oh well, it's totally cute and I hope they love it.  I found the pattern on etsy. The pattern offers the charts three different ways: symbols, symbols and color, just color.  Well I used the color chart and it made it so much easier!  I will try to find more charts like that.

Miss September is for the Saturday Sampler at the LQS.  It was a pretty easy block.   Three more months to go!


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
