Stitching crows, ravens, and bats!

Just for fun, my blog post has a theme today!  I worked on some of my WIPs with crows, ravens, and bats!

I stitched two crows and the tree on the Lizzie*Kate Very Scary Mystery Sampler, then rewarded myself by stitching more crows/ravens/bats on my other WIPs instead!  I'm stitching over 2 on 30 ct Weeks Dye Works Tin Roof linen.
Very Scary (Part 1) update #6
I'm stitching this Edgar Allan Poe inspired design, Quoth the Raven by Kincavel Krosses for my nephew.  This is a free chart.  I finished the word "more" and now all that is left to do is the border.  I'm stitching on 14 ct red Aida.
Quoth the Raven update #3
I stitched the bats on Quaker Moon by Bent Creek.  Isn't this one cute?  I'm stitching over 2 on 28 ct tan linen.
Quaker Moon update #4
There are also some crows flying around Picnic Area by The Prairie Schooler. This is on 14 ct dark green Aida.  The flash makes it seem brighter than it actually is.
Picnic Area update #2
Here are a few more bats on I'll Get You My Pretty by Sue Hillis Designs.  This is a free chart.  I'm stitching over 2 on 32 ct Voodoo Belfast linen by Picture This Plus.
I'll Get You My Pretty update #2
I finished all the backstitching on the top window and stitched the bats on Halloween House.  Check out the Halloween House SAL page!
Halloween House update #35
This sure was fun to get a little bit done on lots of different WIPs.  Happy Stitching, everyone!

I love your update. I love the red fabric for The Raven. Where can I get the chart? I would live to do it for my friend. He loves Edgar Allen Poe.

Love your theme updates Debbie. Such pretty fabric for the Sue Hillis design. Me thinks I should start working on Picnic Area. Maybe after I finish critters and wait for you to catch up. lol

Love your Halloween stitching. It looks like you have a gotten an early start this year. Halloween House is looking great. I really need to get mine out and keep working on it. Just need that extra kick of motivation. ;)
