It's done, it's done!

Yes, I'm shouting, because last night at about 6 o'clock I put the last stitch into Halloween Quaker! The chart is from Lila's Studio, the fabric is Fall Foliage Belfast from Enchanted Fabrics (no longer in business) and the floss colors were picked from my stash--about 95% are Silk'n Colors by The Thread Gatherer:


The threads that aren't Silk'n Colors are from Rainbow Gallery; I used a few colors from their Petite Silk Lame Braid, including white glow-in-the-dark for the ghost (but I couldn't get a picture of it glowing):


I also used Rainbow Gallery Wisper for the spiders, so they are creepily hairy, and Petite Treasure Braid for the web:


A few more pictures:





After I finished last night I spent some time returning all the threads to their proper places in storage; it took a while considering this is what I started with!


So now my table is clear and I'm almost ready to start the Mirabilia model that's due in a few months; I might just take a couple of days to stitch part 3 of the Tempting Tangles Swans & Shears SAL that was released a few days ago.

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
