More Halloween stitching! I can’t help it. I love Halloween, and it seems the little man has a growing appreciation for it too. (I just wish I knew how I am going to handle trick or treating with his peanut & nut allergy thing…) Anyway, my most recent finish:
This was a little petit point kit from my local-ish needlework shop. The design is Night Prowl, and the designer is Kathrin Ellison of Gitta’s. It is stitched with tent stitch using DMC and what I think is Twilleys Goldfingering metallic crochet thread (the black, sparkly stuff) on a 14 count canvas. It was a quick stitch, and I think it turned out really well. I think I even managed to not distort the canvas! Not bad for my first really attempt at petit point on canvas, eh?
I wonder if I’m ready to try it on 40 silk now? Hmmmm….
And a little Halloween poem:
When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.
