I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

Theme-a-Licious - Jolly July

Hey Blog Buddies,

It's time for the Theme-a-Licious July update. 
The theme for this month is:
"It's a jolly holiday with your WIPs.  You can concentrate on
Christmas designs, ornaments, or even pick a different holiday
to render in stitchy goodness.

I had a new (ahem) chart that kept calling my name,
and since it's only 3 months until October,
I decided to go with Hallowe'en as the holiday.

The chart is Heads Up! from Prairie Schooler
and my pick to stitch first was the "head" stone.
The recommended color for this one was DMC 3371,
but I decided to go with all Hallowe'en colors,
so, of course, I used 310.

I plan to stitch quite a few of these,
and they'll all be on 40-count to make the ornies smaller.

I again substituted thread from my stash, WDW Carrot and
WDW Peoria Purple, for the recommended DMC.

Here are the other heads
in case you haven't seen the chart yet.

I ask you, how could I resist this one?
The designs are all perfect for my black tree.

If you want to join in on the Theme-a-Licious fun,
it's not too late.

Hope your weekend was fun.
Thanks for visiting!

I saw this chart and thought, "How cute are those heads?" I guess great minds think alike :)

Are going to put together a Halloween ornament tree for these? I am thinking about making one, but I need to make some Halloween ornaments first *lol*

OH cute. I need to remember I can change colors on those things, never really like what they pick but I like some of the designs.

Chris said...

Lovely stitching! Congratulations!!

I love those ornies! I really like the idea of a Hallowe'en tree but I'll probably leave it to the last minute and have one thing on it!!
