When witches go riding, and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween.
Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo was one of my favourite characters from H.R Pufnstuf! I just loved her! However when it came to choosing my design for the March Hallowe'en Ornie SAL Blog I couldn't find a Witchiepoo to stitch.... so we will have to make do with the image that I found on the web!
Jo mentioned in one of her posts on the SAL blog that three (3) to thirteen (13) witches make a coven... and then when I was deciding what to stitch Jo also commented on my post that three witches can make a coven and how two of Maja's Spring Witches had already been stitched... so if I stitched Spring we would have a coven!
So I stitched the Spring Witch, and we now have a coven of the Snowflower Diaries Spring Witches for March!
|Spring Witch (The Snowflower Diaries)|
Started 23 March 2014, Finished 4 April 2014
The fabric that I used to stitch my witch on is 32 ct Belfast (yes I know, 32 ct!!) and is called Wintered Marble (grey)"" but it is actually cream not grey. This fabric is new to me and comes in a pack of fabric that I recently ordered from an Australian hand dyed fabric on line store - Stitches and Spice. Their hand-dyed fabrics are lovely and this is the second piece of their fabric I have stitched on. (Can't show you the first piece yet as it is travelling to a location far, far away!)
So now onto the April stitch which is "Owls". I have already picked my owl design out and started stitching. I am stitching another design from the Just Cross Stitch Halloween 2013 special edition magazine. Will post an update soon.....
So til next time when I will either be updating you on my owl friend... or showing you my secret stitch.... have a great week, happy stitching!
