Happy Samhain Finish

Earlier this month, I was part of an exchange on ILCS. It was the kit in a container exchange. I got a cute Samhain freebie chart and everything to make it. I finished stitching it last night. The pictures really aren't that good. I wish I had a better camera (phone) to take them with. (I think that is what I will ask for for Christmas)








I did make a few changes to the piece. I stitched it with 3 ply DMC and backstitched with 2. The words and web I did in DMC Glow in the Dark thread instead of white. I also changed the lettering a little bit. I just didn't like the way the words were done. I also backstitched the letters using 3 strands instead of 2. Overall, I am happy with the way this has come out.

I am currently in the middle of finishing this piece as a flatfold. It will be my first one. We'll see how it comes out. LOL
