First finish - Thursday night, By the Bay's Spooky Hill. Yup, I changed the words to Sleepy Hollow as it is the headless horseman. These are the colors called for which are a far cry from the photo on the chart. Much better this way.
Second finish - Friday night. Supper can wait till I finish these dove's eyes...The Norway International Heart from The Victoria Sampler.
