Halloween House SAL update #4

I made a little more progress on Halloween House this week, by finishing the window, doorway, and porch railing.  Maybe next Friday I will actually stitch on it all day long!  You can see everyone's progress HERE.

 
Day #39 is Boule Bordeaux, a freebie from Le blog de Vava.  Just click on "Grilles gratuites" on the right side of her blog for more free charts!  I am stitching this on perforated paper, which is very hard and stiff and nothing like paper at all.  I stitched the word "Noel" in white and started the background in gold metallic DMC 5282.

 
Day #40 is Boule Pastel, another freebie from Le blog de Vava.  Instead of using pastel pink, I will use red Jewel Effects floss.

On Saturday, I am meeting other stitchers from the SoCalCrossStitchers Yahoo group.  I plan to finish the Happy Easter Snow Globe this weekend and I'm not sure yet what else I will bring to stitch on.  If you live in Southern California, you should join this Yahoo group and come to the monthly get-togethers to stitch!  Have a great weekend, everybody!

You are making great progress on the Halloween House. I only have a few hours in the evening to stitch on Fridays, but I am also making a little progress.
Get job on your other pieces also.

I like how you stitched the little doorway first. I normally stitch by color, but I like that yours actually like something already.

Cute ornaments. HH looks great. I love seeing all the different areas stitched up.

Love watching your projects grow. Great job on your new ornament starts. I enjoy working on the paper. It's really really easy to finish into something!
