Crazy January start #18

Day #18 of the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is Trick or Treat Greeting by Ursula Michael.  I bought this PDF download on crosstitch.com which I learned about from another cross stitcher, Vilemoo in Poland.  She was able to buy several charts by Ursula Michael on this website and not have to worry about postage and wait for shipping.  This chart uses glow-in-the-dark Kreinik floss.  I'm stitching on 14 ct Ecru Aida and it will be 11" x 6".
Trick or Treat Greeting
The companion piece from my WIPocalypse list is Holiday Cheer, also by Ursula Michael.  I started this in January 2012 for the Crazy January Challenge but never touched it again.  Today I stitched the snowflake and started filling in the letter P. This chart was in the January 2012 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine.
Holiday Cheer update #1
I buy all my matching Q-snap covers from Christine's Q-Snap Huggies!

It is so much fun to watch you stitch all the projects I have on my SomeDay Start List.

Love both of these, and for me to like a Christmas-themed stitch means the world must be ending!

Lovely charts! I love your idea of doing a companion for each new start :)

Very lovely new starts!! I like how you pair up your stitching projects. I too have several Ursula Michael designs from "PatternsOnLine.com". Although it will be some time way in the future I'll kitting them up. I think back in 2006 I got them as freebies from the website. -- Daisy Towel, Floral Repeat, Bulbs, Nosegay
