Edgar's Halloween RR is Home At Last!


Edgar emailed me this afternoon to let me know that his Halloween RR that I just sent to him on Monday is now safely in his hands, so I can finally, at long last, show something that I myself have stitched ;-) I stitched the coffin with the skeleton, snakes and rats that is kind of near the center of the sampler. This is from the bottom portion of BOAF's Remember Me On Halloween. I was a little nervous about this one. The space left for me by the other stitchers to stitch in was rather large... and this one being Edgar's meant that I really want to do something special. After considerable deliberation, I added this large bit of stitching... held my breath, and whew! He likes it! Yay! I did not want to overwhelm, but I have to admit, it does look pretty good there and his sampler is really stunning (I think). I wish my photo showed the true beauty of his linen. It is much brighter, deeper and has a topaz like jewel coloring to it.

I have finally your RR and I have to say it looks really great! I haven't started stitching it yet as I have to finish 2 exchanges before, but I'll try to stitch quick.

Hugs,

I'm sure you haven't read what has gone on in Donna's life this summer...she's had a very hard road to travel. I'm sure you will be thrilled to get it back. But I understand how hard it is to put in work on a RR and NEVER get anything back.

I don't know how Edgar could not like what you stitched. It looks fantastic and I'm sure was the perfect addition to his RR!

Edgar's RR looks great! Everyone's contribution looks like it belongs - as it were charted that way to begin with. The coffin was a great addition - and really sets the mood for Halloween.
