for your stitching pleasure...
An 18" Halloween spirited cherub who flies over pumpkin patches
and sprinkles her fairy dust upon the pumpkins so they grow extra big.
Antique sheet music is used for Madam Halloween's wings and star garland
and a real pumpkin stems tops of her head. Body is painted, sanded and then distressed
with stain and ground cinnamon for a wonderful old-time look
and delicious smell!

A NEW cross stitch chart for a charming 6" ditty pocket. A primsical witch is not seeing stars, she's seeing pumpkins...lots of pumpkins! Which pumpkin would a witch pick???? A short and squatty one, a tall and skinny one, or one that has a wonderfully curled stem? Pocket has an antique skeleton key stitched to the side...the key that opens the gate to the pumpkin patch! The bag is filled with tallow berries for a warm autumn touch. Design is worked on 35 count linen over two threads.

Place on an ironstone plate and surround it with acorns
and you have a wonderful little Halloween vignette
to sit by your stitching chair!
