March SAL Ornament

I've already shown you a preview of my ornament but here it is fully stitched! I so enjoyed this one because of the lively colours and the funny design!

Happy Owl-O-Ween by Barbara Ana

In the meanwhile I'm stitching on another Halloween piece that I've started two weeks ago - right after Creativa Brussels because I purchased the linnen and it was already on my wish/stitch list for a long time. It's "Sleepy Hollow" from Cricket Collection. My only concern is that I will be able to finish it off in the panel form (I've never done lacing before).


I'm waiting for some special threads to stitch the roof of the Van Tassel farm and
the tree next to it so I started on the middle panel "The Hunt"

The next thing I would like to stitch would be "Ladie's Night" also from the Cricket Collection or "Bewitching Trio" from The Needle's Notion.



Hmmm ... it's always great to make plans (it looks like I'm in a Halloween mood - maybe because of all that snow and grey weather)! ;-)

Such a cute finish, Ann!! Love the owls and I've always admired the Sleepy Hollow piece. Never too early for Halloween stitching--it is always such fun!

Lovely finish. Congratulations.

Lovely finish. I'm not a great fan of Halloween designs but that one looks something that I might stitch also =D

Really sweet finish! Barbara Ana designs are always so colourful. I love them!

Cute ornament! I've never seen that chart.

I'm working on Sleepy Hollow too, but you are farther along than me. I got stuck on the winged tombstone, and all that white is boring.

I love the ornament and the Sleepy Hollow is coming along great.

Your ornament is great! Lovely stitching.

I bought the witches a little while ago. I really should stitch them since they are so cute. Thank you for the reminder.
