Slow Sunday Backstitching

I finally finished the cross-stitching on my Halloween Topiary. I am so glad to be done with the glow-in-the-dark floss. You have to use very short lengths of floss, because it frays as you are using it. It really does glow in the dark, but I can't get a picture of it with my point and shoot camera. You will have to take my word for it.
Here is where I am on the topiary.
I plan on finishing all the back-stitching that is left today. I have done one ghost and all three bats. There is still another ghost to back-stitch (can you find it?), the cat, tree trunk, pumpkin and a spider-web.  

I never mind back-stitching, because I think it makes a piece really come to life. It certainly allows you to see those ghosts. Wish me luck in finishing it today.

I also want to share a pretty table runner that my mother made in 2012. 
I was getting out her Fall decorations and I knew that she had some Autumn place-mats that she had made. In the same drawer I found several table runners that she had made when she was part of a church quilting group. This is all hand-pieced and quilted. The only machine sewing was done by me to attached the binding to the front of the runner before she hand-stitched it to the back. Isn't it beautiful.

I will be joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.
