A Spooky Finish

As promised, I finished up on Spooky Sheep last night. Almost instant gratification with these small kits of Shepherd's Bush. Here's some finished pics...

DESIGNER ~ Shepherd's Bush
PATTERN ~ Spooky Sheep kit
FABRIC ~ 32ct Sand Belfast Linen
THREADS ~ Silk (including hand-dyed) 1 over 2
BUTTON ~ Witches hat by JABC
STARTED ~ 9 October 2009
FINISHED ~ 10 October 2009


This small finish has given me enough time to work out what I'm going to do next. It's another SB Halloween kit, and I've decided to go with the fabric included in the kit. Will let you know what design it is next time. Happy stitching til then and thanks for looking!

Hi Jane,

Love your Halloween finish. Tina and Terri of SB are very nice women. The Shepherds Bush store is about a 20 minute drive from my house, so I visit them often. They have a wonderful wall that all their finished designs hang on and it is pure eye candy!!!

It's lovely! I'll have to remember about these kits with the 'quick' finish. Almost instant gratification!

I like how you've staged your photos too. Very effective!
