Something Wicked Finish and Chart Give-Away!

Hello Friends :o)

I'm so proud I got my Something Wicked finished just now - so hot of the Q-snaps here it is:



"Something Wicked"
Designer: La-D-Da
Threads: DMC
Fabric: 35 ct. Havana
will be framed at later date using called for frame
I absolutely love it! I'm usually not much on Halloween designs - but this one and that little ornament in the Just Cross Stitch Halloween Ornament Issue...just spoke to me. I loved every minute of stitching this and shall proudly display this each Halloween. I love that curly Q boot. Some things I didn't stitch are: the spiders that were on the shoe and on the stocking...I didn't like the look of them, they reminded me of Star Wars fighter ships or something...and the web under the shoe...didn't stitch that either because I like the shape of the shoe and felt that the web under the heel detracted from the shape of the heel. So there ya go...
Now IF you would like to add this chart to your stash and maybe stitch it up this year?! Just leave me a comment (in this post only!) specifically saying that you'd like to have your name put in the "Hat of Destiny" (sorry Edgar!) and my Katie will pull a name on Friday evening 10-17-08. It's a wonderful design and I'd like to share it with someone that would stitch it. If I don't "know" you please make sure you put your name and e-mail address in the comment so I can contact you if your the winner. Thank you!
Shout out to my BFF Marie P, who sent me a pedometer that has an ALARM on it so that I can walk safely (and know my true mileage) and scare the underpants off critters and nasty people!!! Marie, today when I opened up the mail and I read your note....I laughed and then shed a few tears...your thoughtfulness just is astounding. You sweetie, love ya!
**Walking Chronicles**: still hoofin' it to the beat....or book whichever I have on my MP3 player :o) Lately it's been "HIGH NOON" by Nora Roberts...
So until next time my dear readers - keep on keepin' on....
Grateful Needfuls: a finish I love, good friends and a brand new week to get everything right

    And congrats on keeping up with the walking.

  63. It is wonderful and although in Portugal we only celebrate the date by honouring our date, I surely would like to be on that draw.
    I love the pumpkin. I saw on the news that a farmer in US had a pumpkinm with 700 kg. Imagine what you could do with that in Halloween.
    Thanks for the chance given to all of us. You are a really generous person.

  77. wow, 72 comments, I think you beat the record of most posts in a stitching blog I've ever seen!

    Vonna- your finish is wonderful, I love the fabric it's on and the way you displayed it for the camera - very pretty - makes me wish Autumn would hang around forever, but then where would we get an infinite amount of leaves from? Hmmmm....

    I already have this so no need to enter me in your contest, but very lovely that you are offering it up for someone else.

  78. 79 comments so far, Vonna? I think I should do a give-away too. Well, I don't stand a snowball's but I'm going to ask you to add my name to the list anyway :o)

    I love this design so much! I agree, the one from the JCS Halloween issue is fab too.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hey, Vonna! Not entering the drawing, but just wanted to say fabulous finish! LOVE that shoe!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Once again I'm catching up (but then again, when am I not? LOL) LOVE your finish and I think it will look fabulous in your entry way. Can't wait to see the whole thing framed. It seems like it was a fairly quick stitch too. Also loved your ornament for Edgar, I have the JCS ornament issue, but haven't even had time to look at it yet *gasp*. Will try to make time for that. Would love a chance to win your chart and as always loved visiting your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Oh yes please count me in. I love the boot too it's a lovely shape. I wouldn't mind a pair like that myself!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Congratulations on the lovely finish, Vonna! It's really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Oh, I love it. I have the one from the ornament issue getting close to being done. I too like the curly part of the shoe/boot.

    Yes, please include me in the drawing for the pattern.

    Marie is such a dear to send you that pedometer. Now I don't have to worry so much about you walking at such God forsaken hours and what might be out there. Now you can scare them instead of them scaring you.

    Wow, have you gotten the comments on this post. Is this a record number?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hi I've seen your tutorial, it's really useful, thank you, then I decided to visit this blog. Your things are really beautiful!

  90. Your Something Wicked turned out wonderfully, what a fun piece. I like the changes you made as well. I'm not big on spiders either, so probably would want to leave those off if I did it too.
