HAUNTED HOUSE

I had joined a HALLOWEEN ORNAMENT SAL group this year where each month we have a different Halloween ornament theme (pumpkins, witches, black cats and bats etc) to stitch, a paradise for someone like me who loves Halloween and makes a pumpkin land out of her flower garden at home.    The March theme is haunted house and I came up with this design I share with you in this post. Now that I am ready, I think it would have qualified more to the ghost theme of May.   The poor haunted house is only a background decoration:-)

The model was stitched on Nina's Syringa Dark hand dyed Zweigart linen with her threads (Onyx, Pumpkin, Old Berry and White Sheep). 

Please welcome some pictures of this very nice ghost lady with flowers in her hair.  I made a little pouch for my old white buttons... heritage from people who had once lived and loved and laughed.

IN HUNGARIAN: 


Csatlakoztam idén egy HALLOWEEN DÍSZEKET HÍMZŐ CSOPORTHOZ, ahol minden hónapban más-más Halloween téma (tökök, boszik, fekete macskák és denevérek stb) szerint hímzünk.  Paradicsomi hely az olyanoknak, mint én, akik imádják a Halloweent és a kis kerti virágágyásukból is tökültetvényt csinálnak otthon.    A márciusi téma a kísértetház volt és ezzel a mintával készültem, amelyet veletek is megosztok ebben a posztban.   Most, hogy készen van, azt hiszem, jobban illett volna a májusi szellem témába.   Szegény kísértetház csak egy háttér-dekoráció:-)

A modelt Nina Syringa Dark elnevezésű kézzel festett Zweigart vásznára hímeztem a fonalaival (Onyx, Pumpkin, Old Berry és White Sheep).

Fogadjátok szeretettel ezeket a képeket erről a nagyon kedves szellemhölgyről virágokkal a  hajában.   Egy kis szütyőt varrtam az ősrégi fehér gombjainak belőle.... hagyaték olyan emberektől, akik egyszer köztünk éltek, szerettek és nevettek.
