It may come as no surprise that my favorite holiday is Halloween and thus I have several Halloween themed charts in my stash. There's just something about pumpkins, witches' hats, black cats that I love to stitch.
I started this piece when I had my NYC stitching pals (aka the MetroStitchers) over for an afternoon of fellowship. It's a quick stitch, being done on Tula, even if one does make a few mistakes and have to frog a little. I finished it up last evening, buttons included.
The only change made to the threads is that I used Anchor 403 for the lettering (a witch) in place of Blackbird from Crescent Colours. My LNS was consistently out of this color and I decided it wasn't worth ordering online when a solid black would suffice.
Now it's time to decide what to stitch next -- while continuing to make progress on Love from Turquoise Designs. I'm on the final letter (L) so the end is in sight.
