My favourite floss is....

Weeks Dye Works - Ultraviolet !
It is such a wonderful colour. Although I don't celebrate Halloween in Australia - I have always been drawn to the more funky designs. Last year I was fortunate to be gifted the JCS Halloween ornament issue - and several small charts and freebie charts. I was also given some lovely fibres - including Ultraviolet.

I stitched Val's Little Design - Bats in my Hat last year, and from the Ornie issue - fell in Love with La D Da's 'Trick or Treat' and this week picked up another Val's Little Stuff - 'Boo' (featuring the lovely ultraviolet in the hat!- and because I was stitching on black aida - I changed the cat from black to ginger. After all - Pyro could be a halloween cat! (pictured last week when he tripped over a sunbeam and fell asleep instantly)
I also stitched Carosel Creation's 'Spook when Spoken To!' last week. This was a fun and easy stitch - stitched on a moss green soft aida - I've plenty of this and it lends itself well to Halloween black and orange designs.

This morning I picked out ouf my filing cabinet, a Lizzie Kate chart - possibly a freebie - called Spooky Patch. I don't know where this came from, but I stitched it up quickly - no picture yet - sorry.

Hopefully, I can put a few of these Halloween designs behind me for awhile - I need to get the machine out next weekend and have a fit of finishing I think.

I've also had a fit of ebay and have listed a lot of charts - all monies raised to go to the "Bronny needs to buy a sampler stitched in 1840-Fund"
