Halloween Countdown: Vintage Cat Cross Stitch

Today I’m sharing a cross stitched ornament that I made for the OTT Ocotber Holidays swap. My fab partner had a lot of vintage black cats in her faves so I thought that would be the perfect thing to make for her.   I remembered that I had a cross stitch pattern in my stash with a black cat image so I dug through my stuff and found it and it was perfect!  It was a small pattern which fit the requirements of the OTT swap, OTT meaning One Tiny Thing.

The pattern is another thrift store score and is made by Stitches from the Heartland and I stitched it on some scrap linen I had. I decided to turn it into an ornament.  It was a fun, quick stitch and my partner seemed to really like it. 

I’m doing one more Halloween swap and then I hope to be able to finish the two WIPs I’ve been working on: Primitive Hare’s “Early Witches” and The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery’s “Halloween Town.”  I may not finish by Halloween but that’s ok.  There’s all year to work on Halloween stitching!   But I would like to finish Gingerbread lane in time for Christmas, so we’ll see!
