Do you like stitching for Halloween? There is something magical about Halloween. The joy and pride in kids’ faces as they go trick or treating is such a delight to see every year. And of course, you need to have some fun decorations in addition to tons of “treats” for the kids to make this holiday a success!
A major part of my home decor for Halloween is my finished stitchery projects! Stitching for Halloween is always fun for me.
I believe one can never have enough pumpkins, spiders or witches! So, every year I add to my collection. I can’t wait switch my scissors fob to something special for Halloween and pick up my needle and thread! Put on a nice little mystery book to listen to… and stitch!
These are some of the Halloween favorites of past years. More on my latest Halloween release really soon!
