Witches Hollow is done!!

I was doing some major happy dancing last night at about 11:20, when the last stitch went into this piece! Witches Hollow by The Primitive Needle, on PTP Haunted Edinburgh:


The stitch count on this is 197 x 395, so on the Edinburgh it measures about 11" x 22"; the size makes it difficult to get a detailed picture of the whole piece. Here are a couple of closer shots:



I played around with floss colors on this one quite a bit, both to add more color and because the different fabric seemed to call for it. I'm really pleased with the outcome.

Again, I have to thank Teresa for loaning her chart to me. I made a wish on the 123Stitch MB to borrow this chart, and Teresa actually trusted me enough to grant it, even though we've never met. Stitchers are the most amazing people! It worked out well as an incentive to finish it, too, because I didn't want to hold onto it too long.

Wishing those who celebrate it a very Merry Christmas!

  11. I love your color choices on this one -- they really look superb on that fabric (which is just *so* atmospheric and perfect for this design!). Great job stitching this so quickly, too ... I hope to get my hands on this chart someday, but I wouldn't dare borrow a chart for such a large project, as I am a slow stitcher to begin with, and then tend to get distracted by all the shiny new (or hauntingly old or scary looking, as the case may be) things that come out every month. But I, too, have met some of the loveliest people who are also stitchers ...

  12. Melanie would you be able to share the floss colors you used? I am getting ready to start this and decoded to go with a darker fabric as well and I just LOVE how your floss colors pop!

    1. Jodi, I honestly didn't keep track of what I used; I made so many changes, it would have been a pain to mark them all down. You should be able to get a good idea from the pictures, but I think you should just choose what appeals to you and make it totally your own!

    1. Kathy, I never owned the chart; I was lucky enough to find someone willing to loan their chart to me. Sorry I can't help!

    3. Carole, I'm sorry but I don't. The person who loaned it to me was just an amazing person who granted my wish on a message board...
