Halloween Exchange

I stitched up the "Petite Halloween Sampler" by Nikyscreations, in the 2014 JCS Halloween special issue, for Becky.
I used the DMC colors called for, and stitched it over-2 with one strand of floss on a mystery evenweave (I think it was Queen Anne's Lace?) from my stash.  The checkered fabric is what I used for the back or the ornament, and the trim is a piece of jute twine with orange and brown beads.  The bottom bow and beads was my attempt to make a "pumpkin" - not sure if it worked or not, but it is different!
I hope Becky liked it.

Super cute! I love it! I love anything with a black cat in it. :)

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Lovely finish. This one is on my list! My ever-growing list.

I like the rough string and beads you've trimmed it with.
