Trick or Treat SAL - update #5

I started on another witch hat with a black cat hiding underneath it. I've been doing some backstitching too, so I don't have it all waiting for me when I'm finished.  Linda, my SAL partner, has most of the second hat finished already. We plan to keep doing SAL's on Fridays. After we finish Trick or Treat, we will start Halloween House, also designed by Ursula Michael. Linda is having a giveaway on her blog for 2 Halloween House charts.  Feel free to join us, whether you win a chart or not!

I have a small update on the Plymouth Rock Chickens double light switch cover.  I stitched the chicken's legs and one baby chick. This will go under a clear plastic light switch cover for my mom's kitchen.

Since I finished the Violets Teacup, I started something new! This is called "Ant" by Ann Logan, a freebie on her website, cross-stitch-pattern.net. My aunt collects ants, and she lives in the same city as my grandma. So when we go to visit, I will have gifts for both of them!  I'm stitching on 14ct Fiddler's cloth.  This chart has 17 different colors.  I'm having fun stitching it, even though it gives my daughter the creeps!  She hates bugs.
