Mill Hill We Believe in Santa Bell Pull

What a fast stitch. I started this project Saturday and finished today. I still need to buy the bell pull and put the finishing touches on the project, but the stitching is completed. I really love the Santa's. The beards are so pretty.

Mill Hill Halloween Sampler

It is finished. And isn't it lovely. I stayed up past my bedtime last night to finish it last night. Attaching all of the buttons and treasures was a bit tedious, but it was worth it. I am so excited to finally have this project completed. I have looked at the pattern for so many years, wanting to stitch it, but not able to convince myself to spend the money on all of the treasures. Well, this summer, I decided to do it. I can't wait to get it framed. I am thinking a deep purple mat with an orange accent map would be perfect. I want to find just the right ornate black frame also.

Halloween Fairy is complete!!

I finished the Mirabilia Halloween Fairy today. It is really pretty, especially on the hand-dyed fabric. I can have it framed and ready to hang for Halloween. Now I can focus on the Mill Hill Halloween Sampler. I have all of the treasures and most of the beads to complete it.
