HAPPY HALLOWEEN, YA'LL

Seein' as how it's almost Halloween, here are some photos of my favorite Halloween decoration. I started it years ago when the pattern first came out. I finished it a couple of months ago. The pattern is from Crabapple Hill. Now that it's finished I love it. Truth is, I don't like doing surface embroidery. I followed CAH's instructions for finishing, but they weren't all that great. I redid the hat and added some sparkles.

The quilting shop near my favorite cross stitch shop (Cross Stitch Corner) made some fabric packs. I did change one or two of the swatches because I found some neat black fabby with music stuff on it.

All in all, I'm glad I finally finished it. Storing it may be a bit catchy!

Happy Halloween to you and I love that hat. We don't go in much or at all for Halloween here, a few decorations for sale in the shops, that's all. A few years ago I bought some chocolate bars for trick or treaters but no one came And I had to eat them all myself. A hard job but someone had to do it!
