Halloween RR Sampler started

Last night I jumped right in and started to stitch on my RR for the Halloween RR that Donna is running - Witching for Stitching. I have already laid the entire piece out in paper and just felt I should start stitching - I figured what is the worse that could happen - frogs!! So I have a pretty good start on the border. I think that I want mine to have a spooky sampleresque feel to it.
Here is a snap of the border stitching -

I will have the flying skeletal witches with pumpkin (from Tomb with a View) on the top in the middle then 7 "squares" beneath that for the stitchers to stitch their contributions and along the bottom some houses, trees, pumpkins and other fall/Halloween things. Depending on how everything falls I may run vines and leaves around, but I am not to stuck to any pattern or idea. I really want to get a majority of my stitching out of the way before I send this one out so you will be seeing lots of it over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

ps: Guess who called me! Lizzy, but my phone was turned off and it went straight to voicebox, so I'm hoping she calls me back! I've tried calling the call back number, but it's busy everytime!
Yikes!

Hi Edgar, thought it was time I de-lurked and said hello as I've been reading your blog for sometime now. I love that fabric, your Halloween RR will look great stitched on it. Looking forward to watching it grow.
