A Halloween finish!

This is my second finish for 2012. I really enjoyed stitching this one. I started it back in the fall. I sort of used it as my back-up. When I was waiting for something new to stitch, I worked on this . I decided to finish it as a break from the border of Rebecca Robinson. The background color is much more of a burlap brown color, not the gray it looks like in the pictures. This design was by Jardin Prive. It is called "Quaker d Halloween." The directions are written in French. Thank goodness it was black and white so I managed , not speaking any French! I did not use the called for DMC 310, I used a Weeks Dye Works color Kohl. It had just s bit of purple. Just right for a Halloween design. I'm not sure of the fabric color as it just came out of a stash.

I'm not sure why linen shows up as wavy lines with my camera.

You can't have Halloween without a: Pumpkin

A Witch

Spiders



Ghosts

A Haunted House

Or Monsters!
Thanks for taking a look!
