Cat Colage and 1st Finish of the Year

I was able to get a couple more cats done last month...
4 more cats completed

I needed to put this one down for a little bit. I enjoy being able to feel like I had a finish with each box but I wanted something bright to work on... So just before Christmas I picked up Ursula Michael's Trick or Treat.
My first finish of 2014

I tried to get it done on the first but I didn't make it. I was able to get all the back stitching done on the hat and the web done on the second.  I just loved these colors.

I am not yet ready to go back to the cats yet so onto another Halloween stitch. I picked up Spooky Welcome when Stoney Creek was giving it as a free chart. I just love that site!!

I am not a big orange fan so I decided I wanted a purple background. I figured that I could stay with the program of using black but why be normal? lol

I decided to stitch this using DMC 796.

I think the blue will look great with this piece. I figured that I will stitch the words "EEK" and "BOO" in black along with the spider web and the vine near the bottom of picture.

It is time for me to check on my house full of teen aged girls (DD is having her birthday party/sleepover tonight) then make a start on Spooky Welcome.

Ta Ta for now,

Very cute Halloween projects, Angela; I'm thinking 796 will be the perfect "midnight" colour.

The cats are looking adorable, too.

Hope 2014 is filled with many Blessings for you and yours :)

The Cat Collage looks amazing! Congratulations on finishing Trick or Treat. I stitched that one, too!

Your Halloween design will look great with the fabric and floss you chose!
