Jo's March Finish, April Non-start and May's Choice

I think that covers everything!

Here is the design I stitched for Haunted House in March scrapbooked on a suitable spooky paper:

This is a freebie from La Contesse's blog.  I changed it slightly to make it square and added a little witch charm instead of the charted stitched bats.  It is stitched over 1 on 28count burnt orange Jazlyn.

I didn't manage to stitch anything for April's Free Choice because I was busy with Easter giveaway prizes so I thought we'd skip a month and dive straight into May's Ghost.

I have a choice of two, one is from JCS Hallowe'en Special 2012, a simple ghost with the word Boo in orange.  The other is a freebie from a new blog called Snowflower Diaries, you may have heard of it?  It will probably come down to time (or lack thereof!)


  1. I love your finish!
    Hum!! Maybe you can pick the freebie ;)
    Have a fun stitching!

  2. Love it on the orange.

  3. Very cool looking haunted house -- I love the orange fabric
