Late on posting but it was done about a month before Halloween! It proudly took place on my mantel.
Size : Stitched area is around 8 x 11 inches-ish. Lol.
Fabric : 16 ct aida - dyed purple by yours truly because I’m cheap. I wanted it a bit more grayish-purple but I ran out of my dark gray dye.
Pattern : Haunted Mansion by Tiny Modernist It was previously a SAL in 2018.
Fun Factor : It was SO fun to make. I love this style of cross-stitch because there’s so many little things/areas to complete it really is fun all the way through.
- I used glow-in-the-dark for the skeletons and the ghosts.
- I added a back-stitched crack in the mirror. I can’t take credit for that idea though…I saw that someone else in a FB group had done it and I loved it.
- A couple various “artistic changes.” (That’s what we call mistakes in counting, right? )
Thanks for looking!
And for some more browsing…here’s some more pictures!
