Pictures to give you a warning again. At the end of the post I have a picture of my finished part 1 Halloween Mystery Sampler. So if you are working on your and don't want your surprise to be ruined.... well, you know.
I love black-eyes Susans.
On NPR the other day my son and I heard a story about a marine biologist who saved an orphan seal and wrote a book to tell the story. We checked the book out today at the library and I am hoping to find time to read it to him this Summer. Wish me luck!
What are you reading this Summer?
So to remind you of what the part 1 package looked like, so cute. And remember I changed a lot of my colors to look darker and spookier. I did mess up a bit on the owl placement, but it turned out good because there was a bright yellow box around that brown leaf (supposed to be orange leaf). I ended up not adding it.... it would have been crowed there and too bright. I haven't added the beads for the eyes yet because my embroidery needle is too thick to go through the beads. I need to find a beading needle. So once I add the beads to the eyes, it will tone the eyes down.
If you want to see a finished part 1 with the correct colors you can go to Wicked Stitchers blog. You can see how much lighter and brigher her's is and see the big bright yellow box I left out around the leaf. Her's looks GREAT!
