Halloween Stitching Goodness

I was absolutely thrilled to find the Annual Halloween Issue of Just CrossStitch on the news stand at my local grocery store today. I have been anxiously waiting for it. There's just something about autumn and stitching that go hand in hand, and Halloween designs are some of my favorites.
I love the little Halloween ornaments. I'm thinking I might try the little purple house with the ghosts on the upper right.

Or maybe this little owl. He's not overly "Halloweeny" and could be left out on display until fall is over.

I like this one a lot, too. I have some purple linen in my stash. I love the color combo and the finishing on this one.

And probably my favorite thing in the issue is this:

I love samplers! And I like that this can be stitched up as a needleroll, too. The design uses hand dyed fibers and features cross stitch, specialty stitches, and two cute buttons. I need to go dig through my stash and see if I have the materials for this!

So you may be seeing some stitching around here soon...

And maybe if I start doing some stitching, the cooler weather won't be too far behind. I can hope, can't I?

I love cross stitch! I have so many I have completed just sitting in a plastic box. I really should frame them or something. Love the autumn sampler!
