Happy Halloween!

I've been so quiet on my blog (and on the stitching front) lately that you probably thought I was going to pass on the Halloween stitching for this year, right?

I couldn't do that! Not that I'm big on Halloween, but I *love* to do a little bit of Halloween stitching every year.


Trix or Treat by Blackbird Designs

A little note found on the chart: "In the early to mid 1900s postcards were sent to offer holiday wishes. Barb found several from the 1940s celebrating Halloween. These old cards spelled trick differently. She decided to use the old spelling "trix" for this small sampler. We wish you treats not "trix" this Halloween!"

Those were fun! Is it too early to start some Christmas stitching now?

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments and e-mails I received after my last post earlier this month. Our stitching community is such a wonderful place. I'm only sorry that I haven't been more involved these past months.

My eye has been absolutely fine since that horrible weekend. Having said that though, I've been trying not to overdo it either. So far so good!

Happy Halloween!!

These are both wonderful Concetta. I love stitching Halloween designs. The owner of my LNS told me that Halloween sells more charts than any other holiday in the world of stitching. Isn't that interesting? Great job on yours!
