I have been working on “Trick or Treat” an original design by Thea Dueck for The Victorian Sampler
At our last posting on Oct 25th, I had shared the photo below of my progress. I added the witch/farmer, leaf basket and line.
I wasn’t happy with the start to section 2 and took a really good look at the cover photo and way to complicated and confusing directions. I had zoomed in and enlarges the cover photo which gave me a clearer peak at what was going on. You may remember I decided I was going to remove what I had done and start over. I am so glad I did ~ what a difference.
There’s a lot of improvising and tweaking going on with the colors and pattern. I am using the directions and cover photo only as a guide. I moved the second tree and pumpkins over and will be adding another cat and bat into this section, pumpkins and trees. I also adopted a new crafting routine this 3 week period spending 1 hour M -F while watching Perry Mason from 9 – 10 am each day. Who doesn’t like a Merry Mason ala cross stitch 🙂
