The last finish for 2019

This is the last finished piece for 2019!  I actually finished 19 pieces this year!  I am amazed.  It has been a crazy year in so many ways!  I don't plan on trying to finish 20 pieces for next year but I know that is what some people will try to do.  I stitch for various family members, some friends and some for me.  So, while there are some things on the worktable ready to start, I hope that the new year brings some fun surprises in many ways for us all!  Happy New Year to one and all!

Starting the Ghost

The ghost is white Silk Lame Braid in Diagonal weave.  I am adding the pink and gray as I work down the canvas.  He shines a lot more in person.

Witch Hat Star is done

I stitched the hat in Petite Very Velvet using basketweave.  I did the purple in Kreinik #16.  Then I added the Sundance BoHo green parakeet beads and the the little red ones.  Last I added the candy corn buttons from Just Buttons.

All done!

I stitched the candy corn in basketweave.  The blue on the left side is Victorian step stich--that I also used in the green on the right.  Then I added tent stitches over the white spots.  All finished in Silk Lame Braid Petite!  On to the next one.
