Jo's August Finish

I missed July as I was busy stitching my cousin's wedding sampler.  Pop over to my blog if you want to see the most amazing wedding cake ever!

This month I decided to stitch a nice small design to make sure I was able to complete it.

Here is Julia Lucas' Trick or Treat from Just Cross Stitch Hallowe'en Special 2013:

They are nearly all beads and great fun to stitch.  I have decided to make my ornies into little open topped bags and put chocolates in each one on our Hallowe'en tree.  We are having a Hallowe'en tree for the first time this year.  I'll try find something suitable or I might just go into the field and chop a branch off a tree!!

September is Hallowe'en Words.  I wrote down some notes at the beginning of the year so I'll have to check them out and see what I thought of for that one.


  1. Very cute! I noticed this one in the magazine and it's on my list for next year. Love that batty fabric.

  2. Cute, a Halloween tree neat!

  3. That is super cute, and I love the backing fabby, too!
