I must admit, I am tiring of stitching with black especially since I went and started another Halloween piece. I know, I know, it serves me right! I just couldn't resist. I just couldn't resist when I saw this pattern on the Creative Poppy website. It's a new release by Barbara Ana called A Wicked Plant. It had a wicked effect on me alright because I ended up purchasing not only this one but also October 31st and Wicked by the same designer. Follow the link and have a peek. I know you'll be tempted!
I love the fabric I'm using for this one. It's one of Picture This Plus' lovely overdyed linens and is called Ancient. It's perfect for this design! I'm already playing around with some of the floss. One of the called for floss was just too washed out on this fabric so I found a substitute in my stash. As you my have noticed from the picture, the frogs have also paid a quick visit already. I've had to stitch that branch three times now! That's what I get for stitching when I'm tired, lol! I know this won't be done in time for Halloween but that's alright. It will carry me through the gloomy month of November which is only fitting.
I'm giving up on stitching anymore Halloween smalls with my latest start so now I'm digging out some Christmas ornaments to get started on. After all, Christmas is just two short months away. Help!
