Handmade Holidays

I love the holidays, especially Halloween and Christmas.  For me it’s an awesome time to let my creative nature take over and make hand stitched pieces.  I had fun today getting all my Halloween pieces out and placing them around our house.

I made these fun pieces last year …..

Finished August 2018

… I really enjoyed working on Quote the Raven by the Cricket Collection.  I made a couple of changes, basically just color and love how it turned out.


Finished October 2018

… finished Boo To You , a quick and easy two hour project.  I traced the design onto a piece of light pumpkin batik fabric and used one thread of DMC black for the embroidery. 

Finished October 2018

…. a fun Halloween embroidery piece designed by a favorite artist of mine, Kathy Schmitz.  This pattern is called Mr. Boo and is part of her Sweet Stitches Collection.




Finished July 2018

…..Halloween Too Cute embroidery pattern by Hudson’s Holidays.  This was a lot of fun to embroider and the only change I made was framing my finished piece. Shirley has quite a few other patterns I might have to make for the holidays as well!

This year I have all these finished pieces out and it’s really making me want to start stitching !  I am really into vintage inspired Halloween pieces, and love this new piece by Hudsons Holidays

Halloween Sampler – This is a very vintage like Halloween sampler design…. a Fun embroidery project. I designed and created this…to look old, like it came from the attic. The design measures: 7″ x 9 1/2″.  ~ Hudsons  Holidays 

I really think I need to make this piece, as well as a few more of Shirley’s vintage inspired Halloween pieces.

Until next time, be creative!
