I knew when I started stitching her she would not be complete until next year, but then since I’ve had her for years another year won’t matter much. I want to make a broom for her to have as a base to sit upon.
I wanted to share now because of the background stitch… I found it really interesting. I decided to do a darning pattern pumpkin face for the background; but when I turned the canvas over on the back I saw a cat head. And then if you look at the front again in the negative space you can see the cat there too. Can you see it too? Now I wish I had done this background stitch in a glow in the dark thread, I think it would have enhanced the optical illusion. Oh well there is always the next piece.
Have a safe and happy Halloween. Don’t forget Nov 1, All Saints Day, to remember family and friends and all the stitchers who have gone before us.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you find time to stitch today! ttfn…sue
