SAL: Trick or Treat Update #5

“Trick or Treat” is an Original Design by Thea Dueck for The Victoria Sampler.

At our last posting I was here

Three weeks have flown by, we are approaching mid September and here I am, just about done with phase 1 of the project.

Just a bit more to do for this section, complete the ground, there’s a bat for the sky, fix a window and some backstitching, tidy things up and I’ll be done.

Please take some time and visit the pages of the others in the group. Stay safe and well. I am off now to do some blog hopping ~ enjoy!

    Wow, it looks like you are close to finishing. You did a lot of stitching in the last 3 weeks.

      Thanks ~ I used the chart suggestions and picked what I had that seemed to match

    Will we be happy dancing next time? 😀 Back stitching is going to make this sing I bet. Love those trees!

      Hopefully a happy dance for section 1. I am anxious to see it with the backstitching.

    Adding the ground work really adds a nice finishing look to the castle, glad you didn’t give up,like I would’ve.

      I sure was tempted to quit quite a few times 🙂 The ground really gives the castle some depth 🙂

    This looks wonderful, Sharon, you can’t even tell that you restitched, it just looks exactly right! I love those rich Browns for the grounds, they look so perfectly fall!

      Thank you Kathy. I was anxious to add the ground and really like the way it is turning out. Glad I restitched and have continued with this.
