A Halloween Finish!

I last told you about Boo! Club on a post here as part of my Taming the Stash Monster Course.

Well, last night I finished it and now I guess it is a FUPPY! Which is a Finished Unfinished Project. Ways to reduce these are also discussed in the course and I hope to finish finish this into a wall hanging before Halloween 2019.  Stay tuned!!


Boo! Club by LizzieKate (C) 2009

It consists of six double flips stitched as one piece. Instructions on how to make it into a banner  with a specific border was provided on LizzieKate's web site and you can click on it here to get the instructions.

It uses Double Flip #'s F82 -F87 and each flip it came with a pair of tiny white and black buttons for each section of the Double Flips. It uses overdyes and a small bit of a DMC floss. It is on 32 Count Belfast linen. Individual Double Flips were done on 30 ct, but that would probably make the banner very long. On 32 count the design area is 5" x 21"

That is about all for now!!   Happy Stitching.

TAMING THE STASH MONSTER

Is a Group Correspondence Course (GCC) by Laura Smith, that I am doing though my Rocky Mountain Region. I am over half way through this course and it has been a bit of an eye opener at times. But it will help me reduce my inventory and I think I will use if for my other crafts - primarily Paper Crafts. Which I blog about at Plays With Stamps and Ink

Given the nature of this course there are not any photos I can take on my progress. But!! You can go to my eBay site to see what I am getting rid of!!

One activity did have us choose a project from our stash to work on at meetings and in the evenings, so I guess I can show you a photo of that.

I chose Boo! Club by Lizzie n Kate

It consists of  6 of her Double Flips that are all Halloween subjects and can be done individually or she gave instructions on how to make it one long band type sampler - which is how I am doing it.

There are 12 total bands and a decorative border and bottom edge. I am doing the borders as I go and so far I have completed the following bands:
Spooky
treats
black cat
Spiders
eek!
creepy
pumpkin
fright
brew

and I am working on monster. This will be followed by ghost and then Halloween, the rest of the border including a decorative bottom border.

Each band has little white or black buttons which I will add last. The monster sure could use its eyes about now though!!!

I believe the last time I posted about this was in this photo heavy post and I was working on black cat.

I think that brings you up to date and thanks for hanging in with me while I figure out this new retirement life - keeps me busier and away from the computer more than I thought it would!!
