Arachnophobia?

A bit of obsession this week/weekend resulted in a finish!

"Bugs & Hisses" by Plum Street Samplers
stitched on linen of unknown count/color

Floss substitutions:
WDW Amber used in place of GAST Gingersnap
GAST Tarnished Gold used in place of GAST Sarsaparilla
WDW Beige used in place of GAST Flax
WDW Onyx used in place of GAST Dark Chocolate (cats only)
The Dye is Cast Cherry Jam used in place of GAST Mulberry

This really was a lot of fun to stitch...I hated to put it down (although I have been working on Cathy's neighborhood, too)! In addition to the floss changes I made, I also used some black Mill Hill petite beads for the little spiders. I think I'd like this one framed, and I might even try my own hand at framing...so I'm on the lookout for the perfect frame.
