Just in time for Halloween, please meet Ms. Halloween Witch!!!

Ms. Halloween Witch was stitched on 14ct. Country Mocha Aida Cloth. I picked this cloth as I like the aged antique color. I would rather have had an 18ct. but it wasn't available. My cloth was purchased from Needle Fever Shop, Indianapolis, Indiana. The pattern came from a Leisure Arts book titled "Holidays Remembered". My floss was DMC and the frame was purchased from Hobby Lobby.

I have enjoyed all the cross stitch patterns I have stitched from the Leisure Arts Books. I must say the patterns offer a challenge for the stitcher. The patterns keep you on your toes paying close attention as many colors are so alike that it can become confusing. The patterns are very easy to read and in color. I have purchased many Leisure Arts Books on Ebay and would recommend these books.

Wishing a safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Until We Meet Again.

I will soon be finished stitching my HALLOWEEN WITCH. Then comes framing and I am hoping to have this ready to show off by Halloween. The old witch is looking good!!
Love the colors of her dress and the moon is just beautiful! Can't wait to show her off...

Sharing with you all...
Todays mail was my surprise, I received my Holiday Edition of "A Primitive Place" magazine. Inside they have 5 Holiday Home Tours. Many holiday crafts and recipes. Such a beautiful primitive magazine. Job well done. Anyone wanting to know more about the "A PRIMITIVE PLACE" magazine, please check out
