Some Halloween stitching

After seeing Halloween projects on many of the blogs I read, I kind of felt the need to stitch something halloweenie :) . Started Halloween Fairy (a.k.a. Trick or Treat Fairy by Nora Corbett, as soon as I saw pic of her online I knew I wanted to stitch her. This is the first time I stitch a Nora Corbett design, so I'm pretty excited about it :) . I'm using a hand-dyed fabric called London Fog by Silweaver, not sure if I chose the right color though but I'm not going to change it, it doesn't look bad but I feel it doesn't not stand out like I'd like to.

Después de ver proyectos de Halloween en muchos de los blogs que leo, me entraron las ganas de hacer uno a mi también :) Comencé "Halloween Fairy" de Nora Corbett, ni bien ví una foto de ella en Internet me encanto y supe que queria bordarla. Es la primera vez que realizo un diseño de Nora Corbett así que estoy muy entusiasmada por ello :) Estoy usando una tela de Silveawer llamada London Fog, no estoy muy segura si elegi la tela adecuada pero ni modo no la pienso cambiar ya que creo que se vea mal simplemente no destaca como me hubiera gustado.

Here's a small finish I had on Saturday, Spooky Sheep...I wanted something fast and cute to finish and this was what I chose. Changed a little bits the "o" in BOO, I made them rounder. I'm not sure how I'm going to finish it, so you'll have to wait and see. I picked up "Living with Charm" from the framer last week, I think it turned out really nice...I'll share a picture with you next week as it's Carol b-day gift and she hasn't seen it in person yet :)

Aqui les muestro los que termine el sabado, Spooky Sheep de Shepherd's Bush...queria algo rapido que bordar y esta fue mi eleccion. Hice las "o" de BOO un poquito mas redondas, el resto lo bordé tal cual lo indica el grafico. No estoy segura de como lo quiero terminar asi que tendran que esperar un poquito para ver que se me ocurre. La semana pasada recogi del enmarcador "Living with Charm", me parece que ha quedado muy bonito...les enseñare una foto de el la proxima semana pues es mi regalo de cumpleaños para Carol y ella aun no lo ha visto :)

Hi Carla,

I think the Halloween Fairy
looks great on the fabric
you've chosen. At least so
far.

And your Halloween sheep is
so cute in his witches hat!!

I love Halloween, and there
are all kinds of projects
out there with this theme
being stitched right now.
Makes me want to start one
too.

I can't wait to see your
Living with Charm all framed.

Cheers
