Old Crow Brew Cross Stitch

Here is the latest in the Fall Series from Frony Ritter Designs. I have always liked crows, but I was looking at the crow logo while at my local brewery (This was prior to the pandemic. Since the outbreak I finally have an excuse to stay at home and stitch.) I decided to make a design with a crow for Halloween.
I stitched it on several fabrics before settling on 20 count raw linen from Wichelt. One I mounted on a beer Crowler lid, one I made into a coaster, which is shown here. And two of them I made into ornaments for my Halloween Tree.

Beery Christmas Crowler Lids

These patterns will be available soon from Frony Ritter Designs. The idea for them was born at the Great Divide Brewery in Denver, Colorado. The bartender, who was on top of his game, asked me several times what I would like. Having already had a beer I pointed to a Crowler lid. (When a can and a growler reproduce this is what you get). Although puzzled, he handed it to me and my mind immediately visualized Cross Stitched ornaments. The rest of the story is the typical wrestling with my skeins of floss and fabric to find just the right colors, and stitching and re-stitching. You can buy these patterns soon and stitch them for your favorite beer lover, which might just be yourself.
