Halloween Decorations from Robin - part 8

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

Happy Halloween! 


I stitched this Halloween Sampler from EyeCandy Needleart. Beads, Burmilana and Kreinik were all it took. So cute. Ada is an awesome designer.


I made this Halloween Stained Glass picture frame. It would be perfect for a photo of one's grandkids dressed up for Halloween, don't you think?  It has a glass beveled stand and a 4" square bevel for the photo. One of these days I will have an Etsy.com listing for my Stained Glass work.

Now... let's talk about the Nutcrackers and Smokers!  (Yes, I've got it bad.) Christian Ulbricht is my preferred Nutcracker designer, but I do have some from other designers, too.

I have Witch Smokers and Witch Nutcrackers:




I have Cat Smokers and Cat Nutcrackers, too: 



And, when I found a Nutcracker Witch to stitch... ooohhhwweeeee! Life got even better.


This concludes my Halloween 2011 Show & Tell. The Creepy Characters are certainly in good company, don't you think? I can't wait to stitch my next Halloween piece. So many choices; the designers have wonderful new canvases as well as my existing stash is over-flowing. Hope I have inspired some needlepoint for your future Halloween.

Until the next time... Thanks, Robin
