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.
Here is my idea of a fun barn dance! I stitched this piece on 32 count Carrot Linen from Weeks Dye Works. The pattern for this piece can be found in the 2019 Special Halloween Issue of Just Cross Stitch.
This is the latest in my ongoing love affair with stitching on paper. The patterns for these are in the 2019 Special Halloween Issue of Just Cross Stitch. The handmade buttons are from Just Another Button Company. I cut out my own perforated paper using a die cut from MFT Stamps. And they would also look cute stitched on 14 count perforated paper and mounted on a tiny chalkboard.
Here is a new pattern from Frony Ritter Designs, as autumn stitching season is upon us. They are stitched on 18 count Pumpkin aida from Fiber on a Whim, and on 32 count Carrot linen from Weeks Dye works. They are mounted on crowler lids painted black and decorated with trim, ribbon, and spooky Halloween buttons.
I stitched the grouchy ghost for The 2018 Just Cross Stitch Special Halloween Issue. When I was still thinking of unhappy spirits I drank a special bottle of wine from Oso Libre winery which was black. So when it was empty I took off the label and painted this same fellow on the bottle and made it into a vase.
Sunflowers. How do I stitch thee? Let me count the ways. I stitch thee on 18 ct. linen burlap towel by MCG Textiles, and on 32 ct. Golden Needle Country French Linen by Wichelt over two. I stitch thee on 14 ct. Tropical orange Aida by Wichelt and 14 ct Country French Cafe Mocha by Wichelt. I also stitched thee on card stock which I cut out with a die cut from Paper Smooches.
Another two creatures to mark off my cross stitch design bucket list–a snake and a rat. I stitched the design on both ends of this table runner. My sister, “The Rat” is staking a claim on this as a rat is her trademark, totem, spirit animal, friend, foe?
The pattern for this is in the 2017 Special Halloween issue of Just Cross Stitch.
What’s worse than finding a ghost in your coffee steam? Well, for me no it’s coffee at all. That is another scary Halloween thought. This pattern is in the 2017 Special Halloween Issue of Just Cross Stitch.
