A great Halloween themed CROSS STITCH today using one of my new fall collection. Since Halloween is not far off, I thought this would be a lovely example for a very small project to celebrate the season. BOO!
Pyra has stitched this sample which measures 2 1/2 inches on 22 count Aida. She started by hand dyeing the Aida with RIT dyes using yellow, dark green and purple using a lower immersion technique. If you prefer not to dye your own, check out Picture This Plus and perhaps substitute with either Jazz or Masquerade. The motif is adapted from a small area of Lila’s Studio Halloween Quaker pattern. Patterns such as this one are great as you can select different elements to create new projects.
Colour Complements Colour #57 is a gorgeous blend of variations of rich browns. She used one strand of floss for the basket. The pumpkins were stitched with one strand of DMC Colour #3953. Another BOLD option would be Colour Complements Colour #36.
You can see more examples of cross stitch on my blog HERE.
Thank you Pyra.
