a halloween experiment...

Since I spent the weekend suffering with migrane attacks, and was told on monday by the doctor they are most likely being caused by stress, I decided to take a break from stitching water games this week.
Sunday evening was spent dying some sparkly white aida I had lying around a lovely shade of purple; the lighter one in the top-left was the result of a minute 'dip' in the dye, the other 3 were taken out after about 15 minutes. They came out a bit lighter after being machine washed to remove all the excess dye.
Today my headaches were much better, I only had one and that was this morning so this afternoon I decided to stitch something small onto one of the darker pieces of aida. Supprisingly I also managed to finish it today as well! I love this design a lot and I think I am going to finish it as a small cushion that I can display every halloween.
Now that I am feeling better I think I shall continue with Water Games this week but I'll see how I feel tomorrow before making my mind up completely.
Have a lovely week everyone and see you Sunday!

P.S Mel, Water Games is a kit by DMC I bought from my local stitchy shop 3 years ago, reference code is BL467/70 hope that helps :)

I've been having migraines too and I know that they are a result of thinking about going back to work after the long school holidays so I know how you feel. Love the black hat finish where did you get the chart for that one? Hope you are get over the headaches soon.
