First Finishe of 2015
Did I every tell you that I really don't like Halloween? It is not a holiday I enjoy at all, and I just tolerate it for the little ones in my life. So, why did I stitch this Halloween piece, you ask? Well, it just kept calling to me!
This piece is actually made up of two charts, Judith M. Kirby's Victorian Houses # 9 and # 15. I saw them stitch together as a shop model in the early 90's at The Cross Stitch Place in Chicago, a shop that closed many years ago, and have wanted to stitch them ever since. A few years ago, a dear friend painted the fabric for me as a gift, and I started it and completed the first house about two years ago. I started the second house at the retreat I was on at the end of October, and finally finished it at the retreat at the end of January. It will be framed in a simple back frame, I think.
