Frightfully Fun

Awww, it's over! This went by too fast! I had such a good time with this Trilogy "Take Along" kit. My only complaint is the chart was printed way, way too small! The graph itself was just over 2x5 inches. My eyes are too old for that! (The chart was printed very lightly too, so enlarging it on my scanner didn't work.) But much peering later...I have a finish:


Too cute! 


Looking sideways with the camera makes the colors show correctly.


This one goes into the "to be finished" pile and I'm free to start my next stitch. I finished tea dying the fabric for it last night and I'm very excited!


The camera wants to pass this off as mushroom, it is much more golden brown in real life. More to come...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

This is a great stitch. I know exactly what you mean about some charts are too small!

Congratulations on your pumpkin/cats finish! I love the color of the pumpkin. Your tea-dyed fabric looks good and I look forward to seeing what you stitch on it. Enjoy your weekend!

Love the orange thread color in the pumpkin! It is weird but I never wear orange at all but I do love it in floss/thread.

This is an adorable stitch indeed! I like the little star buttons~

Shame about the chart being the way it was though. Nothing like squinting and stitching. :D

Wonder if you could have scanned it, highlighted it and then used a bold black from your font area on the computer to print it larger? Just a thought for next time. I can see why it would be hard to see...yikes. It sure turned out cute.

Darn you evil enabler! Now I have to get that chart and stitch it. It's adorable. Love the fabric you dyed. Can't wait to see what you are going to stitch on it.

Totally love the pumpkin and cat, what a sweet design.
