Pumpkins and more beer!

Hurray! I finished Pumpkin, part 7 of 12 on Boo! Club by Lizzie*Kate.  Only 5 more to go!  The buttons for the eyes will go on last.
Boo! Club (Pumpkin) - FINISHED!

Started 6/22/2013, Finished 7/26/2013

Seven members of the SoCal Cross Stitchers Yahoo Group met to stitch together on Saturday.  This time we sat at outdoor tables with big shade umbrellas between the movie theater and restaurants.  The weather was perfect and we stitched from 10:00-5:00!

I made a little more progress on the Lizzie*Kate Very Scary Mystery Sampler by stitching the leaves on the pumpkins and another purple Quaker star (which I like to call a snowflake).
Very Scary (Part 1) update #7
I also finished two more bottles of beer on "99" by Ink Circles.
"99" update #2
Bottle #3 is Fat Tire Amber Ale, New Belgium Brewing, Fort Collins, Colorado.
Bottle #4 is Dead Guy Ale, Rogue Ales Brewery, Newport, Oregon.
I'm going to print out all these beer photos and put into a little photo album to go with the finished project, or better yet, I can upload the photos to a photo printing website and get a photo book made with all the beer bottles in order to match the finished cross stitch project!  How fun!

Great progress! I love how Boo Club is turning out - so cute! Very Scary is looking great, too. :) (So is 99.. I'm just not that into beer, I can't even drink it yet! xD)

Great progress on your Halloween pieces and I like seeing the what the real beer bottles look like alongside your beer stitching. :-)

Lovely progress on your halloween projects. I haven't stitched on Boo Club for a while now unfortunately it is not calling me. Your beer bottles are looking great.

Linda said...

Loving your Halloween stitching - I've got the LK mystery stitch to do at some time to.

Great idea to print out the pictures of the beer bottles and make an album to go with the cross stitching,

Beautiful projects x

Preeti said...

Great progress!! I never get time to stitch that long irrespective of weekdays or weekends. Lucky you!!
Creating a bear album is a fun idea and you can use your stitched piece as cover for the album. It will be a nice gift for your son if he likes beer.

I love the idea of getting a book with the bottles of beer to go with your stitching! Boo club looks like a fun stitch. I might have to add that to my christmas wish list. (which gets longer each time I visit a fellow blogger!)

Halloween stitching is looking great. I still need to start on my LK mystery pattern. It's all kitted just need to find the time to finish a couple of my wips. I like the idea for the beer photos. Good thinking!
