I decided to start stitching on my Halloween Blackwork yesterday. I don’t have it all charted yet, but the design is rattling around in my head and thought that maybe if I just started stitching it might come out easier. Sometimes I get so many ideas & images at once that they get clogged when trying to make their way into chart form! That’s more frustrating than having no ideas at all, I think.
I haven’t decided on the colors yet, either. I just fell in love with that Weeks green as a Halloween-y color and knew I had to use that, as well as a black and orange. I like this purple, too… I’ll have to see how the green and purple work up together. It’s crazy how different colors can look once you begin stitching with them.
I’ve been enjoying my mother-in-law’s visit; yesterday we got out my fabric stash and rolled around in it. (not really, but you know what I mean) I was telling her about my wonderful local quilt shop and I think a trip into town is in order! I just wish it weren’t so HOT. We’ve had a nice, mild summer but suddenly temps are in the 100’s and we are wiped out after just one quick outing!
BTW, I never say it, but I love reading your comments and emails… thanks so much for visiting!
