October Smalls Check In...

Happy Friday!

Yesterday was check-in day for the Smalls Stitch Along...
(not too bad, only one day late)

The Smalls SAL is run by Heather at Stitching Lotus and you can find out more about the stitch along here:

Here is my October Small..
Fully finished witchy bell pull, complete with burnt edges...
(The pattern is called Miss Grimilde and it is by The Primitive Hare on Etsy.)

Love how this one came out and I am really enjoying trying to come up with interesting and unique ways to finish my pieces.

A quick look at some other pieces that I have been stitching on lately...

Witch House, by Barbara Ana Designs
Really hoping to have this one completed by this weekend, so I can fully finish it and display it for a few days, before Halloween is over...

Autumn, by thequeenbeehandmade on Etsy
Hoping to have this one finished soon, too, but there is still a fair amount of stitching left..., I will try my best.

Mini Midnight Manor, by Waxing Moon Designs on Etsy

I have also started dying my own floss (I used some of my hand dyed floss in Autumn and all the floss in Mini Midnight Manor is mine)...

It's addicting!

Well, that is a bit of what I've been up to...
hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
Happy Stitching!
