PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY GALLIANA
A Halloween Sampler featuring spiders, spider webs, fairy dew and rows of bats, part of Galliana's fun collection of customizable cross stitch charts designed to be stitched in any color combination you fancy.
This sampler has a lovely story, as told by Elaine, Galliana's designer:
'My mother is a fantastic storyteller. Whilst growing up she often told tales of a witch callled Agatha. Agatha lived in a forest in a little hut not far from our house and she had many woodland friends. Her spider friends spun magical webs which caught dew sprinkled by the fairies and she would show us these in our garden and in the woods after it had rained. My mother explained Agatha used the fairy dew as the main ingredient in her potions which she created in her magic pumpkin, and the stories of all Agatha's antics would always make us giggle. My mother now has 4 grandchildren and the stories have been retold many, many times making Halloween a little bit extra special as we all hope to catch a glimpse of Agatha flying by on her broomstick.'
As for all Galliana designs, this chart is monochrome and can be stitched using any count of fabric & floss of your choice. It's up to you how the stitched piece will turn out as you can truly personalise the design either stitching it all in one colour, maybe use two contrasting colours, variegated flosses or even a whole range of different colours.
A Guide to Colors is included with the chart with suggestions of different ways to apply colors to designs.
If stitching with one colour on 28 count over 2 using 2 strands, you will require approx 6 skeins of 8metre DMC or equivalent and the design area will be approx 12” x 17”.
