January's Pumpkins (with crows, bats, a full moon and 3 black cats)

Hello all!  My name is Marcy and I'm so happy to participate in this SAL (thanks for organizing it Lainey!). 

I love stitching Halloween things -- Autumn is one of my favorite seasons.  My first ornament is a Mill Hill kit called Bountiful Kitties.  I'm going to cheat a little for January because I've had this started for probably three years now but never seem to get it finished.  This is the first (and probably the last) time I stitched on paper and, quite frankly, I don't like it.   If I were to do another of these kits, I would stitch on fabric instead.  However, I hate to not finish this one because I like it so much -- it's just too cute.  And so I'm going to take this opportunity to finally finish(!) it.

I look forward to seeing some fun Halloween ornaments and getting to know everyone.


  1. That is so cute Marcy but I sure don;t envy you with all those beads. Hugs!

  2. I love your piece. I personally love Mill Hill kits and have way too many in my to do pile. Good luck!
