The Haunted House is Finished!

Today was a chilly day, perfect for finishing the Haunted House mystery.    There were lots of areas yet to be stitched but they were mostly quick stitches.  Sometimes all it takes is a few well placed stitches to make a detail pop.


The tops of the brick walls are a new laid filling stitch with a twist.  The lantern requires just a little embroidery to come to life.


The cat is peaking around the corner of the tree.


The owl in the tree watches over everything.


The pumpkin is the perfect shade of orange to give a little pop to the canvas.  And of course the gate is beaded. You were wondering where the beads were weren't you?


I'm pleased with the way the entire piece turned out.  The colors were a little dull for me but it fits the season, so what's a girl to do?

Of course my favorite areas are the beaded gate (my basket weave)
and the haunted house.  Love that just a few stitches in the right spots make it sing!

Next up is the Partridge Stocking.  Class #1 is two weeks from today.  See you there.
