I’m not actually sure what a Ouija board has to do with The Exorcist, I remember the creepy girl but not much else about this movie when I watched it. I’m honestly not a big horror fan, so that’s no surprise. In any case, we’re getting close to the end!
Today’s cross stitch square was The Flying Dutchman, I really enjoyed how it turned out. Won’t be long until I’m finished and can then hang this up for the season! Considering it’s my first SAL I’m quite pleased with how it’s coming along.
I just finished the 7th block in my storybook halloween stitch-a-long and I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turning out so far. I am not exactly a huge fan of the original stitches so I’ve been adding a lot of my own customizations but I think in the end it will turn out pretty awesome.
Next on my list is to pick up some glow in the dark floss. I really think it’s so neat to watch the images glow! I’ve seen a few customized projects that others have posted on facebook and they’re just lovely. I’ve never worked with glow in the dark floss before, but I’m sure I can find some someplace.
There’s no way I’ll be able to finish this for September, but maybe I can get it done in October. I’m just finishing up the front of this sweater. The back should be very similar (it has the same cabled motif) and then I believe it’s joining the two pieces together, sleeves, and the hood plus the icord drawstring. I haven’t read ahead in the pattern yet, but I’m looking forward to wearing it this winter that’s for sure!
Well, my frame ended up being one square too small in some places – and I was going to frog the entire thing and start over, but the idea of that was just so absurdly daunting that I decided that no one would be able to tell if I had to adjust a panel anyway, and I may as well just continue. Thus day one was The Black Cat, by Edgar Allan Poe, and day two is Jack Skellington. I’m looking forward to getting a little stitching done each day, and seeing how this project comes out in the end. I think it will be an adorable Halloween decoration to put up each year.
Even though most of this month has been taken up my my cross stitch SAL and poor days with MS issues, I haven’t forgotten about my cable crush hoodie. I’ve been working away on it slowly, I separated the back and front, and now I’m just working on the front. It’s a lot of sweater, and so squishy and soft. I’m really looking forward to being able to wear it once our winters drop to -40C. At this rate it won’t be too much longer before we’ll be seeing snowflakes.
I’ve been making some good progress on the SAL frame lately, I’m pretty confident that I can finish this before October, and if not I’ll at least be able to complete it as I work on each square during the month. I can’t believe October is so close already!
