I've had a lot of time this weekend to just craft and do my own thing, which has been such a nice change! We've had so much going on lately that I really missed my alone time. I honestly need a lot of alone time as it is, so I feel off my game if I don't have time to recharge on the weekends.
This morning I was able to finish week one of my Halloween Spooky Sampler! Sunday mornings are perfect for drinking chocolate chai lattes and stitching. While I'm still out of gray floss, I didn't want to go into week two tomorrow knowing I hadn't finished week one. Deadlines are important!
I love the detail in these patterns. Also, how cute are the ghosts?! You may notice my stitches are a bit off in that frame. Somehow, everything shifted one row down and one column to the right. I tried to fix what I could, but I didn't want to take the whole thing apart, so I think it looks okay. If not, oh well, it's just cross-stitching!
I also worked on some Lucky blocks last night! I sewed all my HSTs Friday night and pressed them yesterday, with enough time to sew a few together. I'm really loving the contrast. Tule has a pretty high contrast of bright and low-volume, so I think bringing them all together in a quilt will provide a great balance. I'm hoping, anyway! I'm using all Art Gallery Pure Elements as solids. They're dreamy! I can't remember if I've mentioned them, but you should really give them a whirl if you haven't.
I'd like to mention that we've also had a beautiful weekend here in Charlotte--we've had breezy days in the 70s, perfect for opening windows and eating outside! I love fall so much.
What have you been stitching this weekend?
