Spooky Cats

Two more finishes for the Great Pumpkin Challenge! I stitched one spooky cat and pumpkin over-one and finished into a magnetic needleminder, then another over-two and finished into a fob to match. I love how they turned out.

Design ~ Spooky Cat

Designer ~ Heart in Hand

Fabric ~ 28 count Jobelan, tea dyed

Fiber ~ DMC
Just couldn't decide which photo to use...
This post was a hidden giveaway!

The winner was announced on this post.

I'm making the most of my time off work. The house is squeaky clean. Two finishes have been completed. October's Snapper Year is started. Netflix movies are being watched. Stash is being sorted and organized, somewhat...lol. Stuff keeps appearing in my cart at 123Stitch. I'm having the time of my life!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
