Halloween finish, autumn finish-finish, and seasonal WIPs

I finished the Satsuma Street "Happy Halloween" design:
Not the best photo; it's actually stitched on white fabric, not gray. :)  I intend to turn it into a pillow along the lines of the model finish.

I finish-finished the little Tiny Modernist "Autumn" freebie (stitched last Fall):
I picked up the wreath, oak leaves and orange fabric at Joann's, and the glittery acorns at Michaels. I reeeeeeally like how it turned out!

And I have two seasonal WIPs (besides two non-seasonal WIPs, ahem). Here's a pic of "Cats on Parade" by BBD:
The fabric is so great, with the mottled oranges, though it's also weirdly fuzzy. No idea the color name or designer. The design is charted with 3371 (dark dark brown), but I decided to stitch it in all 310/black. I was really stressed out during the week before last, and stitching the fence pickets - up and down narrow columns of black over and over - was extremely soothing. :))

I also started Bent Creek's "Gobble" because I decided that since I have a Halloween finish I should also come up with a Thanksgiving finish before I start something Christmas-y.

  2. I love your AUTUMN finish - the wreath is perfect. So happy you were able to finish Happy Halloween - I think that worked up quickly. It's very pretty. I agree, sometimes just stitching with one color is very soothing.
