Which Witch's Boot

 I thought you may like to see a recent quilting finish of this Crabapple Hill pattern called Which Witch's Boot.
 The embroidery stitches are so creative and fun and the embroidery floss color changes really make it sing!  I loved the ribbon candy and thought some curvy stuff was perfect for the quilting.
The quilting in the black border is really difficult to see.

The inner border was a flap border.  I'm not real crazy about flap borders but this did add some additional interest to the wall-hanging.

No news on housing front.  We never did hear back from showing agent from this past Monday's viewing.  Normally our agent is able to give us some feedback as to what the potential buyers said or thought.  When we returned home after the viewing a note was on the kitchen counter that read, "You have a beautiful home."  I must admit that I love my home and the decor because each time I step inside I fall in love with it all over again.

Happy Father's Day weekend!

That is such a pretty and fun pattern, you've really outdone yourself on it.
Too bad about the viewing not panning out. Hopefully soon.

I'm not much into Halloween stuff but I must admit I have that pattern and given serious thought to stitching it. The quilting is fabulous, Mary.

Would you come decorate my home? Please! LOL

I adore Crab Apple Hill patterns and blog site! I've not done much in embroidery but the "Snow Days" pattern drew me in and I just had to order it! This shoe is adorable and I love the orange and fall colors! The quilting is perfect on this project!

Loris said...

The note left was certainly true. Your home is gorgeous! Hope the right person shows up soon to love it as much as you!

Love Crabapple Hill! Your quilt is fabulous!

Heidi's Garden said...

Love this! The quilting is perfect on it too. I want to make a new small Halloween quilt and might have to use this for inspiration. :-) I am planning a Halloween tea right now for my quilt group.

I just know someone will fall in love with your house. I remember when we tried to sell the house before last that we kept hearing that the house would never look the way it did if they bought it as they do not have the things to decorate as I do. That should not matter but it did. Just hang in there!

Hugs from Holland ~
