Here it is. My epic cross stitch completed. I'm so happy to have this done for this year, even if there are only a few days left until Halloween.
The frame and bow is my idea. I turned under the edges of the stitching and used Alene's permanent fabric glue to attach it to the purple fabric I had stretched on the background. Then it obviously needed a bow. Halloween tends to be more cute than scary at my house.
We used to have a huge Borders bookstore near my house. It closed years ago and stood empty for a long time. Yesterday I found that it's now a huge craft store! Yay! It will probably become my new home away from home.
As much as that store is tempting me with Christmas ideas, I'm stubborn about making sure Thanksgiving has it's season. And I still might have one or two Halloween projects to finish up...
