44. Val's Stuff Boo Moon

From Just Cross Stitch magazine Sept/Oct 2009

I stitched this on the same 32count evenweave as Boo and changed the border colours to co-ordinate with Boo too.

I found the perfect button for the star but couldn't find a blue moon so I made a beaded moon instead.

43. Just Nan Moon Riders Jinx

I stitched her using the DMC conversion supplied 
but changed the moon to DMC 4090 which is a variegated thread.

I stitched a stripy border to match the first two designs, seen here

40. Stitcher's Hideaway Oh Glorious Fall

Sue Donnelly from Stitcher's Hideaway designed this as a companion piece 
to Hear the Sea Call which I stitched last year.  
I used the supplied 3371 for the verse and Threadworx Chilli Peppers 
which is a great variegated green, orange and red colour.
The fabric is 32 count Belfast Linen in Tobacco, the same fabric I used for Just Nan's Autumn Typography.
