Ghastly, Ghostly Ghouls!

Ghastly, Ghostly Ghouls! was my Just Nan stitching for this week.


I stitched this on 28ct Zweigart Cashel Linen, Cobblestone , using the recommended DMC floss. The coffin charm is quite bulky and hides a surprise.

Here is a close up of the coffin when it is shut


and open!


Today was a finishing off day.  Firstly I made 'By the Full Moon' into a pillow to hang on the light tree.


I also finished the Trick or Treat stocking into an ornament. I've run out of black beads so the cotton perle hanger is a temporary one.


Next week's stitching has a Spooky feel to it as it is back to Witches Riding By.  But there are still a few stitching hours left today so it could be a new start, probably with a spooky theme!

Happy Stitching

Hi Jen,
I love your Halloween stitching.
The finishing looks great. Do you have a display or tree set up?

Have a great Sunday.

Really loving your stitching & finishes Jen. The most I managed to do in the way of Spooky stitching so far is to buy 2 new kits & a chart LOL

Great Hallowe'en stitching. Mine has become a UFO but at least I can enjoy yours. Looking forward to seeing your tree.
