Happy Halloween

On All-Hallow's Eve
the dreaded awake
Their solitary purpose
to make your knees quake

Witches soar across starry skies
Where the moon shines with grim intent.
to light the way for the luckless few
who'll see All Hallow's dark portent

Black as the night
with silent feet
This is one Hallow creature
You'll not want to meet

To cross his path on Hallow's Night
Could spell the last you'll ever know
For you'll be caught within the sight
of feline eyes yellow aglow

So if you see a shadowed form 
streak across your wondering path
turn around and retrace your steps
Lest you see All Hallow's Wrath

This black cat pattern I had designed for a Make-it & Take-it class in Lancaster, PA last fall.   I stitched it in the continental stitch with 6 strands of floss on 14 count mono canvas.  I then finished it into a cell phone pouch.  
While the kids are out enjoying their night of Trick or Treating, click here for a little treat for you. 

I headed home early to put some Halloween into my front door.
What an awesome night, filled with screams and treats. Many brave little superheros, dragons and princesses dared pass my skeleton crew to collect their treats. I had a blast from all the screams and shrieks from the kids that came to our door and were startled by my singing & dancing Pirate motion detector, spooky noise making Scream mask, eerie noise making door mat, and spiders. There were also quite a number of little kids that wouldn't approach the door without mummy.  But the promise of a sugary treat always won out over fear. I had a blast.
