~A Fun & Fast Stitch ~

a new pattern design from With thy Needle & Thread

A sweet little Hilda the witch


Halloween motifs

are stitched on 28 count flax linen over 1 thread.

The band is wrapped around an old whisk broom,

then carefully whip stitched

to secure.

The broom pictured was taken from my ever-growing collection of brooms, most

of which were purchased

on ebay.

A fun little Halloween ditty to tuck in a cupboard or hang from a peg rack or door
One can never have too many "quick-stitch" projects, in your stitching basket,
to work in between those bigger pieces...

This design can be finished in an afternoon of stitching!

Pattern now available for purchase online

Yes, a snowman one is rumbling around in my head & hope to put the idea to needle & thread very soon-like!

How cute! I love the little witch and I love quick projects, too!

Off to look for whisk brooms on ebay....and while I'm at it, I need to find an old Singer oil can for ABC Pinkeep!
