Hi, stitching friends!
Wow, how's that for assonance in the title? My English teachers would be proud.
For day 3 of my Halloween finishing spree, I'd like to show you "Scaredy Cat" by Val's Stuff. This was a free pattern I received from the Crazy Annie's Stitching PTP Fabric of the Month club. They send a shop freebie with each fabric cut.
I stitched Scaredy Cat on 28-count coffee/tea-dyed Irish linen using DMC black and white and a selection of Colour & Cotton flosses from my collection. I used Mill Hill petite beads for the pumpkin's teeth and the spider eyes.
I laced the little ornament onto foam core, added a felt backing, and pinned ribbon around the edges.
I embellished regular ol' straight pins with some decorative beads I found at Michael's. I wasn't sure if this would work, but it did. What do you think?
A Cute Autumn Freebie
Check out this adorable freebie, brand new for autumn 2019, from Ricami di Marula at Crocette a gogò. You can get the chart from her blog by clicking here. She also has an Etsy shop with some very cute patterns.
I'll be back again tomorrow with Day Four of my Halloween finishing spree. Thanks for stopping by!
