Started something new

Halloween is around the corner. I picked this up at the LNS at Stitch Night on the 1st Wednesday of the month. The model is stitched on R&R's Lucky Penny, but I'm doing it on WDW 35 count Tin Roof and I am loving it. The thing I have to get used to is the long rows of stitching in one color and not doing a lot of color changes. It's good for when I'm watching TV. What's neat is it is all based on Edgar Allen Poe. The house represents the Usher House. There is the Tell-Tale Heart, Masque of the Red Death, and The Pit and the Pendulum in the windows. The face if the moon is ole Edgar himself and of course, the Raven. Cool, huh?
We were suppose to go to PA this weekend, but I'm getting a cold and since my dad has no immunity and everything he catches turns into pneumonia, we are not going. So maybe I'll do some more stitching on it this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for all the wonderful comments.
