Happy Halloween Pillow By The Bay Needleart

I really like the halloween holiday, this pattern is a By The Bay Needleart by Donna Bayliss, she really did do a great job creating this pattern.

I did change the colors a little I use a varigated thread (DMC) I also changed the color of the fabric, I really like the way it came out.

I use a brushed velvet for the bottom, the print on the top and back I have had for several years, I feel they go together well.

I am going to start on my next Blackbird Designs exchange tomorrow.

I think I will start on my decorating for fall and hope I get it done by this thursday.

Happy stitching to you all.

Send Hope To Haiti

I am really trying to get cought up with my finishes, this is such a hard task.
I have time to stitch and no time for finishing, I just may need to contact Vonna to do a few finishes for me if I donot get on the band wagon soon, I wanted to post the most important finish I have done.
I finished stitching this little lovely two weeks ago, and with the loss of my most handsom prince Vern I have not had much else on my mind, you see Vern the cat was with us for 18 years he was a cat someone tried to kill my husband saved him, from this fate.
On to my finish, this is the pattern By The Bay Needleart created for the Haiti relief fund.
I wanted to make a pin cushion that I could use everyday to remind me how lucky I am that I have not had a disater like the one in Haiti.
God Bless you Donna Bayliss for creating this pattern.
Happy Stitching

Annual Issue, I did change the color of the fabric the instructions
called for carrot I wanted to use a gold piece, I really like this
pattern. (Issue October 2010)

This is The By The Bay Needleart Happy Haunting, I did make a
couple of changes on this pattern also, I used a different type of
I used a varigated thread oround the framing of the picture I do like
the way it looks. I raelly love this pattern I may do a couple more in
different colors.
This pattern is a Heart In Hand Wee One, Halloween Bird,
the trim is a yarn of some kind I am not sure what, I found a site
on Ebay that sells small bags of trim for scrap booking, I like the
look of this trim, I did have to glue it on.
As you can tell I am getting ready for halloween, I did start to bring out my fall decorations, at the end of September I will put out halloween stuff. We do not put out a lot but the house does get a real makeover inside.
I will post pictures of the finished projects soon.
Happy Labor day to you all.
