July: Haunted House from the Side Panel of "Halloween Days sewing basket" by Simona Bussiglieri of Mani Di Donna on page 89 from JCS Halloween Ornament Magazine 2015.
August: Halloween Cats - freebie from Kreinik, which you can find here.
I am very pleased with my finishing on both of these cushions. I think that maybe I am finally getting the hang of creating a nice finish.
TraderVic keeps asking me why there is so much stuff in my sewing room but, of course it is full of my stash so that I can always put my hand on the perfect fabbie or ribbons or buttons or beads for finishing. For my haunted house I found some gorgeous reproduction fabric in different shades of lilac and the perfect ribbon - do you like the pretty little purple bow underneath the haunted house?
I love the ghost kitty and do you see how Furio has snuck onto the top of the right column and Milo has crept underneath the ghost cat?
I finished it with little black cats on a ribbon.
And the bottom and backing fabric is black kitties on black!
For both of these designs I used overdyed 28 count fabric from my stash, plus various DMC and specialty threads which I chose myself.
I hope that you like them. I love them both - I am very pleased with my Halloween stitching this month!
