Halloween House update and two bookmarks!

Halloween House update #20
I finally started on the second floor.  Most of the other stitchers in our SAL started with the second floor first.  Check out their progress HERE.  One person has already finished!

My son gave me the Twisted Stitches cross stitch book.  The first thing I stitched was this bookmark, which will be a gift for my friend's niece.
Memento Mori bookmark - finished!

I also got back to this Spooky bookmark, which was one of my Super Duper Ultimate Crazy February Challenge starts.  Linda and I had new starts every day in January and February (it was all her idea!).  I will give this bookmark to my friend's other niece.

I found this free design on a Hungarian blog, amintkipattan.  Barbi has lots of cute free charts!

Happy Stitching, everyone!

Bookmarks look great! I love Halloween House - fantastic progress. Just been onto Linda's blog to see all the others. This is a lovely design. It's great seeing how different people stitch the same design

I just love that house! It was the first Halloween themed piece I've seen that really made me want to stitch Halloween. It looks great!

Good progress on the Halloween House. The roof is a lot of green, hopefully, I will finish it this week. It is a great piece and is fun to be stitching along side others. Fun to watch all progress and see the one finished piece.
Love the bookmark, too.

How do you do the backing for the bookmarks? Do you put a backing on them or just try to make them as neat as possible when you finish off the stitches?

I had started a bookmark a long time ago, but wasn't happy with the back, so I gave it to a friend to finish.

Good progress on the halloween house.
