Something New

I have started on evenweave! As part of the Pumpkin Challenge, I am stitching this Lizzie*Kate freebie, Spooky Patch, on 28ct white evenweave. And I'm enjoying it. It was a bit strange at first with the counting, but I was getting into my stride with the second row, and by the third, I had forgotten to concentrate on the counting! It's coming on nicely and I hope to have it finished soon.

I'm going to try and FINISH a lot more of the designs I complete, so I needed some fabric to do so. I had a lovely visit to my local FabricLand and found these three beauties . . .

I got three half metres for under £5, which is very reasonable indeed. I felt a bit lost when I first went in, as there was so much to choose from - I didn't know where to start. Luckily, I had some help from one of the sales assistants. I was looking for Halloween fabrics mainly, but I couldn't resist the Christmas stars one as it was half off :)
I'm spending my Sunday afternoon stitching, I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend whatever you are doing.

In no time at all the evenweave will be easy as pie! That is a wonderful new start!

Great stash. Careful...finishing fabrics are soooo addictive!

Great start Becka! I'm glad you're enjoying the evenweave so far.
I've also joined the challenge. I've just finished my first stitch but haven't completed the pillow finishing yet.

Good for you starting with the evenweave. Your piece is looking great.

What a cute start, Bekca! And I love those great Halloween fabrics--especially the spider web piece. Can't wait to see what you create with them :)
