New Blog for 2014

I have been beavering away today and we now have a new Hallowe'en Ornie SAL Blog to be found here:

I've used your suggestions, my son's ideas and some from 2013's SAL to choose themes for this year.

I have already sent out some invitations to join the blog so have a peak in your email box.  If you don't have an email yet, then please contact me on joanneperry179 (at) gmail (dot)

Happy Spooky Stitching!

Hallowe'en Ornie SAL in 2014

Following on from Lainey's last post where she regretted she could not continue running the SAL into 2014, I volunteered to do so as I have enjoyed it so much this year.  Lainey had done an excellent job running this SAL and the Christmas one too so it seems a nice Thank You to continue her work.

I have asked her to add me as an Admin for the blog so I can add people as contributors and amend the themes etc.  I have not yet heard back as I'm sure she is very busy over Christmas.

If you are all in agreement I will wait until 31st December and then set up a new Hallowe'en SAL Blog which you are all welcome to join!

Please leave a comment here giving your opinions and suggesting any themes you would like to see, including any favourites from this year.

Have a Spooky New Year!

Thank-you !

Thank you so much to each and every one of you who have taken part in the Halloween ornament Sal.  All the ornaments look wonderful.
Due to a number of my close family members being seriously ill this year my stitching has been non-existent and any internet time I've had has been very limited. I hope there will be someone who will continue the SAL in 2014.
Merry Christmas & Best Wishes for 2014!

Pat's December Ornament

Knotted Tree NeedleArt's Little Owl Sampler
from  the 2012 JCS Halloween Issue,
stitched on 40-count light orange linen
worked 1 over 2 with DMC floss.
I'm very happy that I have 12 new Halloween ornaments
for my Halloween tree...
This photo was taken in October,
when I had stitched only 10 of the ornaments.
This SAL was a great motivator for me
to add a bunch of ornaments to my collection!
