Halloween Stitching!

I haven't touched my Halloween House in a month! Now it looks like this:
Halloween House update #21
I finished all the purple on the house, stitched the third floor window and the orange shutters.  I wonder who will be peeking out of the windows at the next update?! You can click on the picture to see it bigger.

Lucky me!  I received the traveling pattern, Jolly Jack!  I am stitching him on 28 ct tan linen over 2.  Instead of using Weeks Dye Works floss, I am using my own variegated DMC and some other colors that I chose. I hope it looks OK when I'm done.
Jolly Jack
Devon at Devon's Quiet Corner in Florida stitched him first, then she sent him to Amanda at Samplers, Silks and Linens in Taiwan.  She sent him to Denise at Country Stitcher in South Dakota, who then sent Jolly Jack to me in California!  He has been traveling all over the globe and I would love to send him off to the next stitcher to see how many Jolly Jacks we can stitch before Halloween.  Please leave a comment if you are would like a chance to get the traveling pattern of Jolly Jack.  I will choose a winner on Monday, October 8, and send the pattern as soon as I finish stitching.

Katy at tadamama is having a giveaway on her blog to celebrate reaching 50 followers!  Please tell her that I sent you!

Hi Debbie,

Please, please, please choose me (is that enough begging? lol!). Seriously, though, please put me in the draw. I am sure that a trip to Australia is in order next! Your Halloween House sure looks good and I love your floss toss for Jolly Jack.

Halloween House is looking gorgeous but I can't wait to see your Jolly Jack and how it will look with the colour choices you made.

Your halloween house is looking great. Look forward to seeing your new start.

Halloween House looks fabulous! Can't wait to see Jolly Jack finished with the colors that you pick out to use. I enjoyed stitching him up now I have to finish him in a flat fold (I think).
Happy Stitching

Great progress on the Halloween House I enjoy seeing where everyone is at in stitching it.
I am also enjoying stitching it as I have not done a lot of Halloween pieces.
