Halloween With A "Y"

Oh my goodness...I am completely overwhelmed by the response to my giveaway - WOW - blogland has been busy - thank you all so much for reading and following...and for posting about my giveaway on your blogs - my follower list grew leaps and bounds overnight (I feel so special)! Welcome to all my new friends and followers - I am so glad you are here - and I hope I keep you entertained enough to stick around...

...and for those of you who are just visiting for the first time - there is still PLENTY of time to enter my milestone giveaway - just check out yesterday's post...

So on to some more exciting news....a new SNEAK PEEK!!

I have finished stitching my new Halloween model...and it will be heading to the framer tomorrow. It is titled "Halloween With A 'Y'" and will be released in September at the TNNA St. Charles Needlework Market. EVEN MORE FUN - it will have instructions for making each box into an ornament or treat bag (photos of these will be coming soon!). It is stitched on 40-count Tundra by Lakeside Linens with The Gentle Art Sampler Threads. I have to admit, I am very proud of this piece - it turned out even better than I imagined - I have been working on it for about 10 - 12 hours a day this last week (with my sore fingers taped), trying to get it done and framed before I go on a much needed vacation - I wanted to make sure it was ready for market. I hope you all enjoy this special peek...and there will be more to come...

  1. Love the new Halloween piece -- especially since I don't see any spiders on it (nice for those us with arachnophobia...). :)

  10. Love the new Halloween design. I think it would be great each one stitched individually and finished as ornaments for a small Halloween tree or basket of pin cushions.

  11. Another adorable design Belinda! I want to congratulate you on your 200 followers. I am not entering the giveaway as there are so many who come out of the woodwork for them that otherwise never comment. I am rewarded simply by your great designs which give me so much enjoyment and reading your blog to share your life moments. Thanks for sharing those moments!

    Hugs from Holland ~

    Enjoy your vacation break!

  13. Your design is so lovely!
    Although Halloween is not that big in Holland, I love all the things around it. The last couple of years I was in the US right around Halloween. Even went to a Halloween party a few years ago.. And I made my aunt and uncle Halloween costumes.
