Bats and butterflies

I love this little witch's hat with it's bat tassel and glitter.  The designer is The Stitchworks.  It's my March's witch for the Halloween ornie SAL.

In my last post, I mentioned the Friendship Sampler my EGA chapter is doing this year.  We are to stitch a top for the sampler to set the 'topic' of it.  Since I'm partial to butterflies, I decided to start my sampler with one.  I found this butterfly in an old leaflet called Butterflies and Flowers from Carolina Cross Stitch.

Next month, I'll pass my sampler on to the next stitcher and won't see it again until everyone has stitched their band.  It'll be a year before the mystery is unveiled.  I don't know if I can stand the wait.


  1. The little witch hat is lovely!! I can see the sparkle...

  2. Oh, I do love the little witch's hat, it has such lovely colours.
    Great start of your Friendship Sampler.

  3. Aww cute stitches..I love them so much..
    Huge hugs x

  4. The metallic threads really add so much to that design! That's going to be a super-cute ornament.

  5. Beautiful butterfly, and I love that witch's hat!

  6. The witches hat is great and the bat tassel is totally cool. I couldn't wait that long to see the sampler again either...I guess you'll have to get some new starts to take your mind off it.
