a finish and a WIP

I finished M Designs Halloween Tree. Stitched on green linen with overdyed threads and the button pack for this design. Images below are close up with the buttons.


I also stitched some more on the quilt sampler. My goal is to finish 2 squares and I think I can do that this week.

I stitched while watching 2 weeks of Medium and most of the movie Eyes Wide Shut , which was a weird movie the first time I saw it.

Today I plan on finishing Boo Needleroll and hopefully start Nora Corbett's Halloween Fairy.

Halloween tree is so cute. Can't wait to see your progress on Halloween Fairy. I've been thinking of starting that one soon myself.

I LOVE the quilt sampler, it's so nice! I'm working on one as well at the moment! It's more earthy tones though and no text. I think I like yours better hehe

Can I ask where you found the pattern?

Nice finish and the quilt is coming along nicely.

Shelleen, your projects are all lovely! Your tree is adorable, and it is fun to see the buttons up close! They are SO cute, and just right for the tree! You did an excellent job!!
And your quilt sampler is so much fun to look at! All of the different, vibrant color combinations! It looks like a lot of fun to stitch, too.

I'm also looking forward to having a peek at your needle roll! From what I saw on your last post, it will be just as attractive as your tree!

Have a wonderful day!

Super adorable. Abd I thought the tree looked great without the buttons.
The quilt is looking awesome too.

Great job with Halloween. I have to get myself motivated and make the buttons for mine.
