Halloween Day 22 - Two projects as one!

I spent today in my college class.  I am getting my ESL Endorsement (English as a Second Language) which is something that I have always considered but just never signed up.  We are getting 12 college hours for this endorsement which will put me as Master plus 15 which will be a move up on the pay scale.  So this makes me very stressed and a happy at the same time.

I am so excited!!!  I am stitching the one project that I have wanted to stitch for a long time.  I admired these patterns for years but they were retired and never to be seen again unless you wanted to pay an arm and a leg on ebay.  Until a couple of years ago when the designers family gave permission to this one cross stitch shop permission to sell her designs.  I will enclose this information at the bottom of the post.

Halloween Stitching Day 22 - Judith Kirby Houses 9 and 15 together. Stitched on 28 count opalescent fabric that I dyed an evening blue.

This is the start of house 9...see the sparkles....

House 9

House 15

Here is the shop information if you are searching for these houses.   I bought them a couple of years ago.  

Until tomorrow!!!!
