Spooktacular Pumpkin

So much for doing another Halloween stocking that did not involve much work. The one I chose to do next took longer than expected.  I also missed out some of the charted stitches. This is 'Spooktacular Pumpkin'.

As with last week's stocking this was done on 32ct lambswool with the recommended overdyed floss.  I've made a start on the next stocking, this one does involve less work!

This morning I was able to stretch and mount Pumpkin Stew, so that is off to the framer this week.  With a bit of luck I should get it back in about a fortnight to ten days.

Last week on the rotation it was White Nights.  This is a bad photo of my third corner. I managed to complete the two minarets in four evenings.

After the final corner, next month, it will be on to the buildings in the middle and then the border!  Yes, well that sounds good, but in reality I'm still on part 7 of 12. This week it's the turn of the Santa tree skirt but I've been enhancing my stash with some more Halloween stuff which I might have to start! Who knows?

Your stocking is lovely. Can't wait to see more progress on your new start. Lovely progress on White Nights.

Lovely stitching. Your light tree must be getting fuller now. Looking forward to the return of the Santas. The White Nights is going to be fantastic. Watching it grow is inspiring.

Happy stitching to you, Jen.

White nights is spectacular and I am sure your Hallowe'en tree will be the same. I hope you are going to show us nearer Hallowe'en night.
