Witches Night Out Finish

I can't possibly tell you how much I enjoyed this piece. It was an easy, cute, satisfying stitching project. I'm not really sure why; but it was just lovely. I'm waiting to grab some more of Gervais' work as soon as I have some funds available. :)

This is Witches Night Out by Brenda Gervais (With Thy Needle & Thread). I changed most of the colours from the original. I wanted to use things from my stash, and wanted the dress of the witch to be more purple than black.
The coverage is not great. For those that will recall I was worried about that while I was stitching it and decided that was part of the 'antique' look to it. I actually like it now that it's done with it's loose coverage. It seems to fit the feel and look of the piece.




Done on a 32ct 'Smokey White' linen. You can see there is variation in the background of the linen. It's not all just bad lighting, there is actual change and marbling to the linen.

I've actually got a couple more pieces that I've had some good work happening on. I"ll be to back to share them soon!
Thanks for dropping by!

Love the fabric you used and I can see the marbling. Mel, I think you forgot to stitch in her legs! No biggie, except I have yet to stitch her legs on my finished piece too, lol! Or do you have her wearing white socks? Too funny. I figure that since she's a witch, she does have the power to hover. Looking forward to your other soon-to-be finished stuff.

Beautiful finish, and I agree on the coverage, it adds a vintage feel to it, just like having the marbled linen. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much!

Most of the Halloween stitching I've seen is done on darker fabric. Love this lighter, marbled piece! Great work!
