Remember this sign came from a previous post?
Well, here they are!!!!! We met our daughter for coffee on Wed. am to be greeted by this wonderful pile of pumpkins!
A pumpkin Mountain!
This is Albert, our daughter's dog. He's checking out the pumpkins. We love him, he thinks of us as Grandma and Grandpa!!
I did this cross stitch last year. It is on 32ct antique linen. The threads I used were in a special package designed for the Jenny Bean Halloween sampler. This sampler is by Shakespeare's Peddler. It was fun to do. I did change the black color to Onyx. I did the sampler on 32ct. linen and the directions called for 40ct. so the package did not have enough of the blackish color. I liked onyx better than the bluish -black that was called for.
The colors had fun names like: witch's wart, sarcophagus, zombie flesh, nightmare,coffin lid,dried blood,swamp water,and parched bones!
The in initials on the gravestones(my own addition) belong to my two revolutionary war patriots.(Yes, I do belong to the DAR).
Well, Oct. is just around the corner so I hope this helps you to get in the mood! Thanks for looking.
