I Wonder Who is Looking?


Some of you may have found goodies of mine in the recent  2016 Just Cross Stitch issue.  Another pair in my series of ornaments which tell a story.  I always prefer to have my work tell a story more than anything else.  These are the 2016 versions.  

The rooster is in the Halloween ornament magazine and also in the recent autumn edition, whatever month it was named,m probably October. The names of these little ones are Cock-A-Doodle Boo and the S'mores Bear-B-Q.  Someday, in the far, far, faraway future, you will see this pair in favorite needlework shop.

Punkin Play Kitty Hunt

 "Punkin Play" has all the favorite parts of Halloween.  There is a black mama cat, standing on her tiptoes (claws?) looking for her little black kittens with the cutest pink noses I have ever seen.  They are hiding in a big, spooky pumpkin. Can she find them??  

At a perfect ornament size, this design in 68 x 63.  The model was worked on Weeks Dye Works 35 count Guacamole linen #1193.  We used 2 strands of Gloriana silk floss. 
In addition, our chart key has a conversion to Dinky Dyes silk as well as DMC cotton.  The eyes and noses are Mill Hill glass seed beads #02004 Tea Rose and #02031 Citron.
Your favorite needlework shop can order this chart for you or you can find it on my online Etsy shop here in pdf.  Punkin Play at Etsy Shop
