I have a finish to share with you! I discovered a group on facebook called Pumpkin Seed Stitchers and each month they will feature a free Halloween cross stitch pattern by a different designer. Pretty great. The first pattern was “Haunting Love’ by Teresa Smith of T.A. Smith Designs. It’s a really pretty pattern with cattails, spiders, rats, ghosts and a pumpkin.
I stitched it on 35 count linen called Grape Ice from Picture This Plus that I had in my stash. It’s a lovely light purple and I think this pattern was perfect for it. It looks a bit like dusk when the ghosties come out to play. I struggled on 35 count though. It’s so small for my eyes and I know why I prefer 28 count for linen…oof!
I can’t wait to see what’s up for September! Don't you love a good surprise! Come and join the fun with Pumpkin Seed Stitchers!
