Finishes!

My, oh my!! Here's my little witch and her habitat for Marie's Neighborhood in our RR group. I've named her Broomhilda. She's carrying a grim pumpkin familiar. Her very favorite time of year is Halloween, of course. This was a challenge to work on, but with all your suggestions, I got inspired!

I made this by patching up pieces of Cross-Eyed Cricket's "Three Gables" for her cottage/habitat. And used The Trilogy's "Halloween Line Up" for witchie which I dressed in my own choice of colors. She has metallic mixes and glow in the dark threads, too. All in all, a challenge to find something unique to add to Marie's Neighborhood, and fun to do!!


Oh, dear, lookie here! She's finally finished, Harmien!! Well, nearly...I've completed the stitching, and now have to do the sewing finishing part. What a trial she was in that she kept hiding from me in the piles of WIPs! I know the goblins were keeping her from me... You really can't see her sparkles very well, but she truly is gleaming like a gaudy hoochee girl! That should drive the little pestie no good anti-stitch goblins away from your door and simply to distraction!

Many people have asked for her chart. It doesn't exist! I just improvised using the Voodoo Boy chart by using metallics and changing some of the colors and things.


Otherwise, I'm off to stitch on Nicole's Neighborhood RR which just arrived at my door earlier this week. And, I'm looking for a pattern for my Fair & Square friend Susan's piece!

I'm going to try to find a bit of time to stitch on these pieces of my own: Cirque de Cercles, Taj Mahal, White Nights of St. Petersburg, and Marie Antoinette Sampler, and my PIF friends' pieces!


Wish me luck! Love to all my stitching friends!! Hugs, Deb
