I am getting the jump on my Halloween projects. I made these 4 cross stitch panels and these two hoops, the spider was inspired by someone else's post on here (cant find it right now), and I thought of the ghost one on my own. I burnt myself out on needlework for now so I am moving on to other projects for now.

Sampler 1



Sampler 2. I used the creepy hollow pattern by Sitcheree. I didn't use the whole thing, though. The phrase on top I found on google from an old 1800's sampler and I thought is was really neat.



My 2 hoops

That one is my favorite too. I love the ghosts on the top right. I think they look like ice cream Smiley

I like the effect of the pure black and white on the bottom of the second sampler.  It makes me think of an old Gameboy game or something.  Smiley

The two samplers are fantastic. I think I like the first one better too because it has so much embroidery all over.
