Gentle Readers and Dear Friends we had a lovely cool weekend here in the City by the Bay. Especially yesterday... the fog sort of rolled in over the city and through the Golden Gate to envelop us in grey loveliness!!! Not too much going on and the few things we did get accomplished I will hold off writing about until tomorrows post. Today I wanted to focus on a Hallowe'en Exchange that arrived.
I took part in the HOE Hallowe'en Exchange and it arrived over the weekend to my Partner Kayona, from over at "My Sometime Cross Stitching Obsession." Here's a snap of what I made and sent....
Since this was for Hallwoe'en I thought that finding some of the specialty treats for the season would be nice I also included some Holiday fabric and trim. Here is a close up of the piece I stitched...
I stitched a Lizzie Kate chart called "Sampling Hallowe'en." I used a piece of 32ct linen I hand dyed and the recommended floss'. I took the stitched piece and made a great box finish. Here's a snap of the piece and the inside of the box...
I painted the box using a pearlized purple paint that matched the letters, the inside is also painted and lined with a contrasting pumpkin fabric. This was a fun piece to make, and Kayona has let me know that she enjoyed what I sent.
That's it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
