I had hoped to stitch *two* of the fall Mill Hill kits this month, but things have been busy lately so it looks like I’ll only get one stitched up. I just realized I haven’t posted an update on this project recently, I’m such a slacker. But there is progress and I’m well past half way now.
Every store I went to this week pushed Halloween items to the end of the aisle and started putting out Christmas decorations already, I even saw trees for sale starting today. Why so early? Heck, it’s not even October yet!
I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’m a fan of Imaginating and I love Halloween themed projects, so it’s probably not too surprising that I picked Halloween Night as chart of the week today.

“Old Witch Mary” was just released by Lila’s Studio in July and it’s already flying off shelves with enthusiasm (as is the equally awesome Witches Brew pattern ~ the two together make a lovely pair to display!)
Old Witch Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow? With moss and slime, and poisonous vine, and toadstools all in a row.
Not everything for Halloween has to be spooky or stitched in 90% black floss. Walking Jack by CM Designs is fun, cute, and definitely still has the spirit of Halloween at heart.
It’s a quick stitch at only 104w x 90h stitch count and less than 10 floss colors required, so can reasonably have him all stitched up and ready for Halloween this year no problem.
