New Rug Hooking for Halloween Gift

I bet you are all LYBO right now. Yes, another project but this is for a gift so it is a little bit different then just starting something new. It has a deadline and a destination. When I saw the project in the new issue of Create and Decorate I knew right then that is was a project that I had to do. My dear friend collects witches hats and this will be a great addition to her collection.
I know I am always showing you WIP but I will get this done as soon as I can. Hopefully within the next week.
There are also a couple of hooked ears of corn that I want to do also, but..... I will wait to do those till I finish my Dear Sweet William Wallace. He is sitting across the room glaring at me to get him done.
I think he is looking very Wallace like and I am so happy with the way he is turning out. I can't wait to see him hanging up on my wall. I do wish though, that he was still sitting beside me . Yes, there is still a big hole in my heart where he used to be. Although he will always be in my heart, there is still that feeling of emptiness where his kisses could always fill. Okay, I have to leave it at that for now.
So, as soon as I get this witches hat done I will post another picture. I am also adding the date of the Salem Witch Trials off to the side of the hat. I think that will be a nice addition.
