Yesterday I was feeling Halloween-y....so I grabbed an itty-bitty freebie out of my binder and stitched it up on an old piece of 14-ct. fiddler's lite aida. (And there is STILL more aida in my fabric bin. Yeesh.) The finished size is not quite 3 inches square. My post title for today comes from the fact that I don't think I've ever stitched so much of one color!! The kitty, the spider, and the border are all 310 black. I have a new respect for those of you who stitch the monochromatic samplers!!
Since we had to run out for pet food and a new iron, I sweet-talked DH into letting me pop into JoAnn Fabrics to look for pillowifying fabric. What I WANTED was a black fabric with white spiderwebs on it - seems like it would be easy enough to find at this time of year, right? - but they were almost out of fun Halloween prints. There were only about a dozen designs left, and they were all marked 40% off. *sigh* I got some black fabric with little witch hats and lollipops on it, but it didn't work with the design. Thankfully I'd also grabbed a black"swirly" piece from the rack of quilting quarters, and that worked better. Here is the finished product.
It is about 6 inches square, not very big at all. For now it is just sitting on a bookshelf....maybe when my mom comes out next month to scrapbook, I'll make a little gift basket with some candy to put it in! Or maybe I'll just keep it..... hehehehe
