Basting and stitching

One thing I don't think I've shared here yet is the cross stitching I've been doing for the last few months. I subscribed to the Frosted Pumpkin's Woodland Sampler at the end of June, and decided to do their Halloween sampler too. Their patterns are so cute and I've had fun stitching them up. Here's my Halloween sampler so far:

I am using a fabric color called "stormy night" and I think it's perfect for this project. I stitched some more of the lacy border today and am ready to start the next square. 

I have a couple of small things pin-basted and ready to quilt, too.
Here's my second HST pillow top:
I think I used the darks from this fabric collection better in this design. Still not sure how I will quilt it.

And I made a little pumpkin last week. I copied the idea from Amy at Diary of a Quilter; she posted it on her blog last year and I had put it on my Halloween pinterest page.

It's going to be a little wall hanging. I'm going to the Seattle MQG sew-in tomorrow, maybe I'll do the quilting while I'm there.

We had a family outing to the Halloween store yesterday; my girl got really scared and we decided I'm making her a mermaid costume for Halloween this year. I'll let you know how it goes.

I love the colour you've used for your sampler. Mine was a little pale and the white doesn't pop.
