October.
Sleepy Hollow | Cross Stitch

Sixteen Men on a Dead Man's Ship | Cross Stitch

so, i realized something today.  ok, maybe a couple things.  

a) it's october, which means HALLOWEEN. i love halloween. well.  maybe i just love candy. separate issue.

2) it's WAY too cold already for this time of year when i'm driving into work.  my dash read 46 degrees this morning, and i was in no way ok with that.

d) i never shared two of my most favorite pieces that i've done, and they're both for halloween.  one i'm sharing with you today.

SKELETON CREW.

i posted WIPs of this piece, but never gave you the full effect with the frame i picked.........

dude.  this frame.  i.can't.even.

BONES.

remember that show? david boreanez? the other deschanel sister whose name i can't freaking remember right now? is it still on, or just reruns on tnt?

can we also talk about that fabric, because i have a special love affair with this fabric for halloween pieces.  it's called "haunted" by picture this plus, and...............i love it.  purple + blue + grey + green = halloween love affair in fabric.

and then there was this serpent. i gave him green hair and an orange tongue.  and i made the bony fish glow. can we also talk about the ghost sails?!  GAH.

and hello! the skeleton underneath the ship! when i brought this to my LNS for framing, one of the women there didn't even know that skeleton existed! he blends right in with the fabric in the model stitched for the store.

i made the moon glow.....and omg that creepy pumpkin on the mast.  and the raven! i forgot about him, all cocky on the jack-o-lantern, like, you guys don't scare me.

if you love halloween, you should definitely put this piece in your "to do" pile.  i made six serious floss changes, and a major fabric change, all of which are listed on my "floss & fabric" page in case you would like to stitch this using my color changes.

are you guys working on halloween stuff now, or are you working ahead to christmas???  curious crafty minds want to know!!
