Halloween Countdown: Witchy Tea Thyme

Hi all!  I'm back with another finished cross stitch piece!  I made this for my pal Lisa for a little Halloween swap! She's a tea lover and in looking through my patterns and magazines I came across this one and just knew it was perfect!

The pattern is 'Witchy Tea Thyme' by The Primitive Hare and you can find it in this year's Just Cross Stitch Halloween edition.   Look at those ladies drinking tea and eating cake!  How fun.  I love it and it was fun to stitch it.

They are having a grand 'ol time!

I used DMC 4126 instead of what the pattern called for.  It's a lovely variegated with yellow, orange and green that I think looks great and brightens up the black so well.

So another finish!  I'm feeling very good about the things I've completed lately, particularly the cross stitch pieces.  They take such a long time, I get a real sense of accomplishment when I finish a large piece. 

 I hope you're getting in the Halloween mood!  Just over a week to go to get your spook on!

I love the variegated thread you used for this design. It is perfect. I do like the 4000 range of DMC colours.
