In the spirit of returning to my goals for 2022 I pulled out Andromeda
Tuesday, September 20, 2022
Well, I have made it to both sides of the project...
The left side was 6 stitches too long and the right was 3 stitches to short. Now that they have both been stitched I will need to go and correct the left side further, but at least we are making progress!

Another Creepy Cross stitch bites the dust and brings my Halloween WIP total down to 9!
This project was tarted on October 29, 2021 so that I could squeeze one last Halloween start in last year. Stitched in 6 days, I made many changes, most notably the use of E940 for the ghosts, a truly hateful fiber that gives them a soft glow.
Before the New Year I devised a plan for 2022, and like may stitchers I immediately veered of course! I have been seeing how much I could salvage with what is left of the year and since I neglected to outline my goals in January I will do it now. Maybe this will make me more accountable? Doubtful, hahaha
3 Creepy Cross Stitch Projects (COMPLETED!)
1. Gentle Monstrosity
2. Illuminated Ghoul
3, Fright Night
3 Creepmas Projects (COMPLETED!)
1. Gruss Von Krampus
2. Krampus Ornament
3. Gingerdead Man
4 Mirabilia Designs
2. Aphrodite Mermaid (COMPLETED)
3. Night Nymph (beading as week speak)
Note: after reorganizing my WIPs and making some tough decisions I have whittled my collection down to 12 Miras. I like the idea of assigning one Mira to each month and giving myself a goal, such as 500-1000 stitches. Looking at how much time I have to stitch left in 2022 I do not think Ophelia will be completed, but have high hopes for the rest of the list!
Antler Girl (started)
HAED SAL with @linasstitchlife (postponed, TBD: I have a secrete)
Castle Dracula (started SAL also with Lina, but may restart do to coverage issues)
Whew, those were some lofty goals! The Maiden

I spent 2 hours frogging the moon on this project for the fourth time, but I think I finally have found a color combination I can live with for my oldest Halloween project!

Have I been absent, yes.
Does that mean I have not been stitching? No!
August is when I generally get the Halloween bug, but this year with the birth of my second niece I did not feel the need to pull out and organize my projects until today.
My most recent WIP, Former Homeowners, satisfies my urge to have at least one project from Creepy Cross Stitch going at all times.
Now which one should I take out next? The Maiden

I have slowly been cultivating a cross stitch bucket list and Long Dog Samplers was at the top. I Struggled to find just the right project until I came across Forevermore and it was on my snap frame the very same day!
