October Halfway Gone

Had a productive couple of weeks even though it was tremendously frustrating.  I seem to be terribly distracted and I am wondering if I do not have too many projects in the works.....


Witch's Brew by  Pineberry Lane

Witchy Harvest by Barbara Ana Designs

This was the most frustrating project this year.  Not because of the chart or design, but because I just am not able to focus and make huge mistakes in counting which required me to either rip out the entire witch, start over, abandon the project entirely or make alterations.   So I altered the project.  I cannot say I am happy with it, but it is done.  Will not fully finish it this year so perhaps by the time I decide what to do with it next year and I will not be so disgusted with myself.  I may restitch it next year for Halloween and I really do like it.

Lila's Studio seasonal pieces

Autumn all finished.  I will probably start "Winter" soon but am still awaiting one of the threads it requires.    I could substitute, but I am not good at doing that!!  I really like these little guys and have plans to do all four ......  Am using aida (18 count I think) mocha.

I look forward to having a few more finishes to post by the end of the month. 

I hope you are staying well.   This months seems to have particularly difficult for me and I hope I am the only one.  I am ready for this year to be over and have decided that I am going to embrace some Christmas stitching.  I have not done any for a couple of years an am hoping it will help my mood embrace the end of 2020!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  

Be safe, be happy, stitch like crazy.....


  1. I think everyone is a little bit fed up with election ads, pandemic updates, rioting news...... All three of your pieces look awesome. I don’t see anything wrong with your Barbara Ana piece. The witch looks fine......she is your interpretation.

  2. Beautiful stitching, I have made many mistakes and worked around them, I hate having to rip out threads.
    Autumn is beautiful, I am looking forward to seeing winter done and your Christmas stitching.
    Stay Well


  3. I think all three pieces look great. I am not familiar with the Barbara Ana piece so it looks fine to me. I am sure if you put it away for a year you will have forgotten whatever the error was!
    Enjoy your Christmas stitching.

  4. I love all your Autumn pieces, especially the witch! I get what you're saying about having a difficult time, though. For me September was really hard, but I'm still not quite back to where I'd like to be.

  5. Your witches look great, even the one you had trouble with. I don't know what you had to alter, but it looks good to me!
    Autumn looks lovely, such pretty colours in it.
    I'm ready to start more Christmas stitching, it should definitely improve your mood!
