This was a freebie from Ink Circles. I chose a light color for the outline because I was using black fabric; I didn’t realize that the colors I picked were so close together in parts, so I ended up backstitching around the inside and the crossovers in black. There are some issues with the backstitching that I didn’t feel like fixing. The other colors that I used were all DMC: 3865 for the outline, 90 for the yellow, 4040 for the green, and 67 for the blue (it’s hard to tell the difference in the picture; the blue starts on the left and the green on the right).

This is The Town of Halloween from the Just Cross Stitch 2012 Halloween issue; I do plan on working on this and finishing it, but I am easily distracted.

This is the Aargh Matey latch hook kit from Caron; I picked this up when the Joann nearest me had all their latch hook kits on clearance for half price. The idea was for my nephew to do it; he had expressed interest in latch hook, but he found how to do it a little confusing and difficult. I ended up doing it and made it into a pillow for him.

I am slowly continuing to work on Alphonse Mucha’s Primrose from Scarlet Quince; I haven’t been enjoying working on it and have been neglecting it.

This is from the January 2013 Cross Stitcher magazine (part of the “Oriental Beauties”). I think the fabric is 32 count evenweave; I bought it on clearance at Joann a while back and have no idea what the color is called. I made at least one mistake in the placement of the flowers, and if I’d been paying more attention, I would have done one of the lower large flowers in the darker pink to make it more symmetrical. I’m not sure how I’m going to finish it.
