All caught up...

...and ready for the next part, which should be released this Sunday or next Monday; The Great Cheshire Pumpkin SAL by Tempting Tangles:

Of course I'm playing with colors, brightening it up a bit and adding some sparkle. The witch's dress and hat were stitched with Silk Lame Braid, which has a metallic woven in, and I used beads for the decorations; the beads are actually citron, to match the socks (because every good witch has to color coordinate!), but they look more gold in the picture.

I'm also using some Silk'n Colors in place of DMC; the broom bristles were stitched with one color, and the leaves with another. It's nice to get a lot of variegation without having to change colors all the time.

I'm hoping to stay up-to-date with this one, to have it done before Halloween, and in the meantime I've made a good start on a Rosewood Manor model.

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
