"Trick or Treat Heart" by Sekas & Co. -- July 22, 2009

I have some more progress on my "Trick or Treat Heart" to share with everyone. When you last saw this project, almost all of the stitching was complete. I needed to add some details to the Trick or Treaters and I needed to finish adding the top stitching on the orange and green patches. Well, I'm done!

Now I just need to decide if I want to stitch the area behind the Trick or Treaters as the original instructions does not have you stitch this area. I must admit, I'm not sure if I like the bare area. Hmmmm...

Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope you are keeping cool during these long, hot summer days!

Very cute. I might use a darning or "t" stitch behind the goblins. Just a thought - and I don't have too many of those!

What a cute design. Are we voting again, I vote stitch the empty space. I don't know why I don't particularly like empty space on canvas projects. I mean, it's cute the way it is, but I would still put in maybe a seed stitch or basketweave something that won't detract from the figures.

Thanks for the correction for the TUSAL list. No idea why you weren't there because you are there on the other two lists. But, I was getting really blurry eyed by the end of that 'fix-it' session. You are now back on the list.

Love your Halloween Heart! I have yet to make a sekas pattern and really should one of these days

As for the Clover Rose Maker, I bought mine at Erica's in South Bend, Indiana
Sweetheart Rose Makers
They have 3 sizes and are prices between $5.95 and $7.95

I'll see if there is a demo on line -- or instructions on line

One of my GFs already has made roses & it might be on her blog -- Moonsilk Stitches (marjorie's blog)

stay tuned

I found a video on the Clover site:

I noticed they also have pom makers & puff quilt makers. Tho, I think I would only use the yo yo and rose makers.

I tried to put this on my blog & it is taking forever to process. Maybe will be on my blog tomorrow!

Hope all is well in Windy Meadow. I am sure you are just busy with summer stuff. I try to look and see what you are posting when I have a spare moment. Maybe you are organizing your stash again....
