Halloween rules finish

For the first time in forever I managed to actually finish a "larger than an ornament" piece in less than 6 months!
This summer I spent a huge chunk of time stitching up Lizzie Kates Halloween rules. It was such a fun stitch. Here's my finish on lime green 32 ct linen with various overdyed threads:



I have a few other things to share. Amazingly two more finishes! Though little ones. Both I did over the summer. (yes dragons has been neglected but I'll get back to it)
Here's a cute ornament from this years Xmas ornament preview from Just Nan. I changed the colours to some silks i had on hand. And you can see that it makes it much less christmasey.




The last finish is one of a three set. The first is a dragon. The next two are a snowy owl and a unicorn (of course can't wait to do the unicorn).



Even more amazing than 3 finishes. I think I'm keeping them all!

I've got a few other things in the works. I know I'm not posting as much but maybe I'll get better as I get back into the swing of things. I picked up the Halloween book from just cross stitch magazine and can't wait to do the geometric sampler in it! My favorite: geometrics and Halloween! If it had a unicorn or dragon it would be perfect. Lol.

Hope everyone is stitching away. And enjoying the colours as the leaves start to change.

I love the dragon! Can you tell me who the designer is? I'm curious to see the unicorn as well. May need to add this to my wish list.

Thanks
