I am taking an on-line stitching class called "Inchies," taught by Kathy Rees. It is a canvas work piece of 40 inch-sized segments (8 by 5), with different stitches and different threads. It's a way to try out new stitches and new threads. I really do not need another piece to hang on the wall, so did something different. I stitched the inchies in groups of 9 (3 by 3) which I'll make into ornaments to hang.
"Inchies" stitched 3 by 3 to be finished into ornaments
While waiting for some canvas and threads I had ordered for my next project, I was sorting through a stack of magazines and found "Look What I Did" by Jennifer Rodriguez of Always Time to Stitch in the September/October 2013 issue of "Just CrossStitch" magazine. The design comes with a ghost holding up a Halloween quilt. I decided to stitch the Halloween quilt portion and left off the ghost. I'll finish this into an ornament for my Halloween tree.
