Remember that scene from the Wizard of Oz? I grew up being a witch most Halloween's. I even won a costume competition one year when my brother painted my face green and gave me a wart to go with my witch's costume. My prize? A huge pink and white teddy bear. An obvious prize for a witch right? *grins*
This weekend, I found two fabulous Halloween charts from The Primitive Needle and started the first one as part of my HarmAn marathon this week. I just loved this Witch's Checkers game board. I have an idea already about the finishing which I hope will work but you will have to wait a little while for that.
I am using things I had in my stash for this project. I am stitching it on 28 count tea dye evenweave I bought at a stitching shop up in Elburg. I am working this one over one. The threads are Carrie's Threads Double Shot and Crescent Colours Fallen Leaves. I have enough for this chart but will need to order some more pronto to start the second chart. I would love to finish both in time for Halloween!
For anyone who wants to take a look at that famous scene of Dorothy throwing water on the Wicked Witch of the West...enjoy the video. Turn off the Halloween music on my sidebar to hear the video. It makes me think of my sister who loved imitating the Wicked Witch and Halloween was her favorite holiday. Each year, Halloween becomes more of a fun holiday to me as a way to remember her.
Stitching is the best thing to do today and tomorrow in Holland as we are having above 30C temperatures. I am seriously melting away.............
