As you can see, I'm going to be having a very-cross-stitched Halloween at my house this year. I was lucky enough to have four of my designs featured in the special Halloween issue of Just CrossStitch magazine, which is on newsstands now. Here's a peak at my projects: first up is the Halloween Welcome Banner, pictured above.
I've got to admit, this Monster Movie television is one of the favorite things I've ever made. Maybe because I love watching campy 1950s sci-fi movies at Halloween or any time of year.
As you can see from the Nevermore cross-stitched picture above, I'm also a big Edgar Allan Poe fan.
Last but not least is this creepy Spiderweb ornament, which is embellished with a shiny spider charm and silky fringe. (The satin floss from DMC can be a little tricky to work with, but I think it's totally worth the effort.)
If you'd like to stitch one of these designs--or any of the other 49 projects featured in the magazine--look for this cover on your newsstand. And if you want to finish in time for Halloween, you better start stitching soon.
