The 'October' cross stitch chart download, part of the 12-month stitch-a-long (SAL) with Susan Penny and Willow Fabrics, features traditional Halloween imagery and will look fantastic against the rest of the collection so far!
Autumn is here and with it all the wonderful things it brings such as the beautiful changes in the colour of nature, cozy nights in with blankets and roaring fires! We could go on! It's also the perfect time to snuggle up and create part ten of the 2022 SAL. With traditional Halloween imagery it's a cracking addition, or on its own as a standalone piece.
If you're following the stitch-a-long you'll carry on working on the same piece of fabric as you did for 'August', building up the months as you go to create one, long, striking design.
You will need
- 'October' chart (download below)
- Fabric – 14 count blue aida (15x18cm (6x7in) for individual design, OR carry on working on 100x20cm (39½x8in) if completing all 12 months on the same piece)
- 24 tapestry needle
- Stranded cotton colours listed in the key (see PDF)
- A hoop for individual months or frame for the complete 12 months
So that you can buy just a metre of fabric for this sampler, you will have only 5cm (2in) above and below the finished design, so you should count carefully before you begin stitching.
Short of supplies? Willow Fabrics to the rescue!
