In Stitches Does Halloween

In Stitches is the counted thread shop (with knitting and needlepoint) close to the entrance to Woodlawn Plantation. They offer a lot of counted and cross stitch patterns but they also have needlepoint, so I wasn't totally surprised when their Halloween blog posting featured two wonderful needlepoint patterns.  First there's Shelly Tribbey's skeleton in a top hat, perfect for the Halloween dandy!  I think finishing this in a little coffin would be perfect!

The photo of the Quilted Jack o' Lantern (fourth from the bottom) is a counted canvaswork classic from Pat Timpanaro of Neon Flamingo.  I hope this chart is still available.  It's a fun sampler of stitches for the fan of counted work.

Sometimes you can find great designs in the most unlikely places....
