Another fall finish

This is another fall design from the Just Cross Stitch Fall/Halloween issue -

I used a great small piece of Silkweaver hand-dyed fabric that was perfect for this design. I'm in their Fabric of the Month club and I have the "surprise me!" option, so I never know exactly what I'm going to get. When I first saw this piece I wasn't sure what kind of design I would be able to use it for, but it ended up being just right for this one!

First of the JCS fall/Halloween designs done!

I actually finished this last weekend but I'm just now getting around to posting the photo since it has been a very busy week.

It was nice to be able to finish a small project since I've been slowly (VERY slowly) working on two larger projects for about a year now. Plus I was finally able to find a good use for this one small piece of needlework fabric that was just begging for a design like this! Of course, working in those lovely autumn colors has really made me wish that we could skip September and just go straight in to October.
