Crazy January start #30

Day #30 of the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is The Boys are Back in Town from Just Another Button Company.  I used DMC variegated floss instead of the Weeks Dye Works, Gentle Art, and Crescent Colours floss listed in the pattern.  I really need to practice stitching with variegated floss, since I'm not too excited with how this looks right now!  LOL.  This has 8 buttons from JABC for the mummy, vampire, and monster heads, a bat, owl, skull, spider, and pumpkin.  I'm stitching on dark gray 14 ct Aida and it will be about 7" x 5".
The Boys are Back in Town
I pulled out another Halloween design from my WIPocalypse list, Halloween Happiness, an Imaginating chart.  I haven't touched this one since the first day when I started it last January. Today I stitched part of the white moon.  This is on 18 ct brown Davos fabric.
Halloween Happiness update #1
I also finished the January ornament for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL.  It's not finished-finished yet.  I just folded the fabric to see how it will look whenever I try to make it into an ornament some day.
Skeleton - FINISHED!

I love Halloween. Two great starts. Wohoo on the finish! Too cute.

I like stitching with those special threads except for the cost. They sure look pretty though.

Just having a blog reading catch up session, you've posted lots since I was last here. Great choices but I love the beach babe and the towels. The printed one is so colourful too.
Happy Stitching!
