Oops!


Well, nuts! My cone of Kreinik metallic thread is giving up the ghost! (Pardon the pun--couldn't resist!)

For those of you not familiar with cones of Kreinik thread, a cone is roughly the equivalent of five spools. That's a lot of thread! But Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #032 is one of my favorite threads, so I use it a lot. When I realized I was starting to run out, I concentrated my stitching on the left ghost, so I could at least continue working on the background until I get to my LNS for more thread.

I also have a lot of painting to do, so in the meantime, I'll finish up as much background as possible and work on the top border. And at some point, these little ghosts need eyes and mouths, too, so stay tuned!

Hi Anne,

I love the Dreamgirls!

And also how you are stitching the canvas. :-)

Very different and fun for a Halloween canvas.

Your new design made me smile when I saw it, so to me that is a winner.

The background is quite interesting and I love the colors you have selected for it.

I am one of those persons who do love orange, but it has to be tasteful and yours certainly is :-)

I always have the best of time whenever I am stiching something for Halloween. That must be the kid in me (grinning)

These ladies make me smile too! I also need the 032 in large amounts, and the 002V. I never thought ghosts had personality until I saw these.
