Why I Love October

Here she is all finished!  Now lest you think I am a fast stitcher, I must confess that this canvas dates to 2007 when I first went to Aristeia while on a college trip with my youngest daughter.  I think I have worked on this canvas at least 5 different times.  Who knew I only had a week's worth of work left!

Here are some details

The shoes...I couldn't find the right beads so I just took some fyre werks and did french knots.

the was Susan Portra's idea to put the green beads on the fringe

the tassel

and one more closeup

I also re-started working on my Halloween candies- have 3 left after this one

check out the crystals

and I turned in my last golden cracker for finishing!

Now why do I love October?

1.  It starts getting cooler! and when it finally does we have 6 months of beautiful weather

2.  I love Halloween - little kids all dressed up, candy, candy, and more candy

3.  There is no stress to this holiday - EVERYONE has a great time!

4.  Last but not least I spend the WHOLE month stitching with my favorite colors!

Have a great weekend,



  1. Love your cute witch, wonderful stitching. Your an inspiration to me, coming back to unfinished projects and completing them no matter how old! Please show us when she comes back from the finishers.

  2. I love October too! Here in Texas it goes from being 107 to 87. That's our fall! Your canvases are adorable and I can't wait to see the finished product.

  3. I do love your witchy witch!
