Halloween Cat - Durene Jones | Halloween Blog Hop

 
 
Hello Peeps
 
As promised, more Halloween little crosses!
 
I fell in love with this cutie while blog hopping
and decided I had to stitch it too
 
This small project was one of my 2 starts during
our cross stitch retreat earlier this month with Justine
 
 
Halloween Cat
From Durene Jones
 
 

 
Stitched on gifted 28 count Lugana evenweave fabric
from Chromatic Alchemy, Malva colour
(Thanks again to Tiffany!)
 
2 over 2 using charted DMC colours
 
 

 
 
Finished off as a cube using
Halloween fabric & ribbon from stash
and a small Lizzie Kate spider charm (which you can't see, d'oh!)

Now go and visit Beadgirl
 
 

 
 
Happy Halloween!
 
Toodles,

      I had no idea I had been featured in TWOCS! They are so cheeky & should have let me know! I haven't bought the magazine for a while to be honest.

    2. That's surprising that the magazine didn't inform you. Let me reach home and I will check again for the issue number.

    Congratulations for being featured in TWOCS, but how cheeky that they didn't tell you ... it is just common good manners surely!
