I finished stitching this pattern many moons ago, but finally got it put together as a pillow a few weeks back.
I initially stitched the big spider web with the suggested 1 strand of black DMC, but I just wasn't happy with how it looked. Instead, I decided to try the #8 black perle cotton that the instructions said to use for the blanket stitch on the edging of the pillow. BINGO!... it gave me exactly the effect I was looking for :)
This pattern was a really fun stitch, and I'm excited to add to my ever growing Halloween collection.
Even though November is just around the corner, the autumn hued trees are still putting on quite a show in our region. This maple in our back yard is just glorious this year... I just had to share!
When we planted that baby tree all those years ago, I never thought I would see the day when it would be peeking over the top of our house like it is here...
While you're visiting, would you like a closer look at my front porch decor for this year?
Happy Halloween, everyone... thanks so much for stopping by!
