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 umbrella...it was Susan Portra's idea to put the green beads on the fringe
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,
