"By the Full Moon"

It wouldn't be a holiday if I wasn't late in stitching something.

The design is by Tracy Horner of Ink Circles, and it is in the September/October 2010 issue of Just Cross Stitch.  I used only materials I already had, so that meant lots of substitutions: 32 count linen in silver rather than 40 count Newcastle linen in tarnished silver, Sampler Threads Raven rather than Onyx, and Sampler Threads Picket Fence rather than Peach Ice Cream (the Fragrant Cloves thread stayed the same).

I love it, and plan to back it with purple felt like the model (but probably next year).


  1. Hi, I found your blog when I googled the Monsterbubbles 12 days of Christmas. I love so many of your projects, we clearly have the same tastes! From the Mill Hill pumpkin and Wise Men to the maths sampler you started.
    I also work in a bookshop so I'm enjoying the books reviews too. It's been a long while since I read my old Joan D. Vinge books so thanks for reminding me of those.
    Love Ink Circles too, and I have the full sampler of this one!

  2. Thanks! It's a shame, isn't it, that Monsterbubbles never finished the 12 days series (not that I would have time to make them all).
