September WIPocalypse update

It's time for the WIPocalypse SAL update!  You can see current pics of all of my WIPs on my WIPocalypse page.  Check in on Measi's blog with your WIPocalypse update, too!  This month the theme is Designer - Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED), Project Theme - Specialty Stitches, and Focus Colors - Brown and Green.

My Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED) chart is Flaming June, painted by Sir Frederic Leighton in 1895.  The actual painting is in a museum in Puerto Rico.
 
This is how far I have gotten, only halfway through the first page, which is the sky in the top left corner:
Flaming June update #
For specialty stitches, I stitched LOTS of French Knots on Thomas Kinkade's Lamplight Bridge and there will be a lot more!

For the Focus Colors of Brown and Green, I stitched the bear on Picnic Area by The Prairie Schooler.
Picnic Area update #5
I stitched the skeleton on Halloween House.  I have to finish the tree, add smoke and spiderwebs all around the border.

I just love all of your WIP's....they are sure beautiful...especially Thomas Kinkade one.

I have one of his started as well. I haven't worked on mine for a long time.

Keep up with your beautiful stitching.

Happy Stitching

What a great group of WIPs. The Heaven and Earth will be so pretty. I have several of the Thomas Kinkade designs and have finished one, Beacon of Hope. Your Halloween House is looking good too. We have both almost come to the finish line on it.
