A Halloween Finish

This is another Barbara Ana design "Spooky Tree". I bought 3 of her patterns at the same time and once I finished the Spring Biscornu for Seasonal Exchange, I decided to do this one. I made some changes to the actual design of it, in the original pattern Mr. Skeleton is supposed to be holding a rose which I left out, and the flowers on Mr. Crow are supposed to be white which I didn't notice until I looked at the photo on the front of the chart after I was all done stitching. I finished this one in a week which is some really really quick stitching for me!
This week was my oldest daughter Maya's birthday. She is all of nine years old now. It is amazing to me how she is growing from a child to a pre-teen now when I still think of her as my sweet little baby. As a neat b-day present we went trail riding. She actually hadn't ridden a full size horse before, just ponies at the fair, but she did so good! Below is me on my horse, I left my cowboy hat at home.

Spooky tree is awesome! I know what you mean about your "baby" growing up fast. My "baby" had his 14th birthday Sunday. Where did the time go?

Very cute Halloween finish! I like your decision to leave the rose out. The trail ride looks like it was a lot of fun. I used to ride a lot, but its been years since I've been on a horse.
