Three Halloween Pieces Kelly is Stitching!

Hi!  I've been thinking about publishing a Blog for about a year now, and I finally got the nerve to actually do it!  Please hang in there with me as I learn to maneuver the Blog and how to format the look of the page and so forth.  Lately, I've been feeling a bit isolated with my stitching and thought that publishing a blog would be a good way for me to reach out
to other stitchers.  As a Painted Canvas Designer, National Teacher and Stitch Designer, it does seem that extraordinary pressure is on me to be a Super Stitcher.  That is such an honor, but really I tear out, and doubt my choices, and pick the wrong thread just like
every other Stitcher.  Through my Blog, I will endeavor to show you all of the exciting pieces I am working on and keep you informed about all of my teaching jobs!

This is a piece I  am teaching in Austin at The Needle Works on July 7th.  
It was stitched in just 2 Days!!!!  A Fun and Quick piece to stitch in time for Halloween!!!

Halloween Apples Part Stitched
This piece will be taught at The Needle Works in Austin July 7th.  
 I am  working on finishing this piece.  The Background was the hardest  part for me to resolve.  I finally like it very much, but ripped out two other stitches before I got here!  Below see a picture of the planter and
greenery with more detail....A bit of Bling!  Cool handles, feet and beads in the greens...Fun, fun, fun!!!I will show pictures of this piece when it gets further along!  I have a surprise border to add to the edge!!!  What will it look like?

Halloween Pear Topiary...some of the threads.

Well, why stitch one piece when you can do a pair?   I can't wait 'til  these are finished!
