Elaine's April Ornament

Here's my April ornament. I stitched it on 14 ct plastic canvas and backed it with felt.  I stitched this from a freebie chart I had in my stash. :) I'm getting anxious to get my Halloween tree out with all these ornaments!

March and April finished

My ornies for March and April are finished (stitched, that is).  For March it's Haunted House by Handblessings:

April's is called Night Owl by Prairie Schooler:

And I even have one picked out for May but I can't remember what it's called or the designer right now .... but it's a ghost playing the saxophone.  It will be a gift for my nephew, who is learning to play the sax.  How perfect is that??

This is such fun!

Pat's April Ornament Preview

This is what I've decided to stitch for April:

The witch from Prairie Schooler's Heads Up booklet.
I'm changing the color of her face to green.
(Shouldn't a witch have a green face?)
What has everyone else decided to stitch??

Jo's March Finish (almost!)

The house itself is finished!  There are just some words to be added underneath the house.

Actually it's more of a Haunted Castle but hey - an Englishwoman's Home is her Castle so this is my house!

I've stitched this on Burnt Orange 28 count using one strand of black over 1.  You should be prepared to see this combination quite alot over the coming year.

The design is a freebie found on this blog - la contesse le point de croix

I'm still deciding on April's stitch, free choice is sooo hard sometimes.
