Two Finishes and Spoilers

We (my sister Lynn & my friends Helen & Minnie) went to the 2018 Cross Stitch Club Retreat in Harrisburg PA a couple weekends ago. While there I started the first installment of the Silver Needle's A Little Help From Our Friends Stitching Circle. It is One Hundred Hearts designed by Sampler Not Forgotten.

I'll have to FFO it sometime soon. Next up is my pumpkin. Janis from Noteworthy Needle drilled our pumpkins (the craft kind you get from Michaels) so we could stitch our chosen pattern on it. It made my thumb sore pushing the needle through but I finally finished it.

I'm going to put a battery operated candle in it and put on out on my porch. I might eventually do another one, but it will be a smaller design.

Now - SPOILERS AHEAD. Anyone who has not received their Halloween box from Colour & Cotton beware. Lots of pictures ahead.

Tissue paper when you open your box
Hand dyed ricrac and an adorable ouija board needleminder

Hand dyed beads and I love these little scissors!
Hand dyed backing fabric
Hand dyed velveteen fabric
Hand dyed cotton floss
Beautiful hand dyed silks
Hand dyed Charcoal quarter and Parchment half 40 ct.
And there you have it. I love everything that came in the box. The pictures do not do them justice. I don't want to take anything out of it and use it LOL!

Thanks for stopping by.
