Creepy Hollow free cross stitch pattern

     I thought it was high time that I get back to blogging after a several weeks hiatus and what a better way than with another free pattern right? More about that in a bit. :o)
    We were on our annual cottage vacation recently in the Muskoka area of Ontario and even though I missed the comforts of home (electricity for instance), I can't help wishing I was still sitting by the water and listening to the loons. It's a very isolated cottage with an entire lake to ourselves and that's one of the main reasons we keep going back year after year. It was Stella's first time going to the cottage and she just loved it! Here is a photo of my baby playing around in the sand by the lake:

     My goals from the previous post are coming along "just okay".  I did manage to get more rows done on my crochet afghan (check) and while I finished the stitching on the little Sue Hillis design, I still have to fashion it into an ornie for my kitchen.  I'm looking for time to work on my Elizabethan Garden Sampler and that might come this weekend. If I get the next square in the pattern stitched, I will jump for joy, lol.
      Anyway, to the main point of this post.....the free Halloween pattern.  It is a small, monochrome design and will take you no time at all to stitch. Me on the other hand, well it's taking me ages to put one foot in front of the other these days so I decided to get it posted before Halloween comes and goes. I have a wee bit more to go on mine as you can see in these photos:


I think I may finish mine mattress style or maybe use it as a topper for a Halloween treat box! Hope you like the pattern! Enjoy!

Creepy Hollow pattern
Cheers,
Erynne

  6. What a great pattern for Halloween Erynne. Thank you so much. When we were living in NH we would go to a cottage for a week usually every summer. Loved the lake and all of nature there. Little Stella looks like she is enjoying herself for sure.

    1. Thank you, Sue!
      It has been a nice distraction to have a blog again and of course I missed all of the blogging stitchers. Stella keeps me very busy so there will be gaps in my blog post for a couple of years. I plan on sticking around!
