The finial finishes of Halloween..................
Too many finishes but I believe these are the final finishes before Halloween this year. The first is the latest Shepherd's Bush bag , "Grateful Heart," which I collect. I've done every one so far and love them. Plus the bag is already finished so when you are done stitching you are ready to use it. Great little bags to put your scissors and needles in, or for small items in your purse. The 2nd and 3rd pictures show the "Scaredy Pail" from Noteworthy Needle and finished around one of their Rusty Buckets. An easy finish as they give you a template for the wrap. So it's simply a matter of wrapping it around the bucket and whip stitching it closed. I also added the pom pom finishing on the top and bottom but it isn't really necessary. The next picture is "Halloween" from Lizzie Kate. The kit comes with the linen, fabric for backing and the front, ric rac and buttons. Easy design to stitch and easy to finish with directions for finishing in the kit. The last two designs were in the Jamboree goodie bags. The shoe is actually a free design from Blackbird which we used but changed to fall colors and black shoes. Love a cute pin cushion and the final piece was another spool scissor holder, which I seem to be obsessed with. With the fall colors and the black spool it just went really well with the shoe pin cushion. Cute set. Hope everyone got theirs done. Easy stitch and easy finishes. And that, I think, is the end of my Halloween stitching. Now back to Giving Thanks by Drawn Thread.
