My January witch

Thanks again for including me in this group.  I chose a freebie from the subrosa blog for my witch.  It was a little big for an ornament stitched over 2 on (my usual) 32 count linen over 2 so I stitched it on a piece of lugana (I believe)...25 count over one.  I'm please with how it turned out.

I should tell you how I "scored" the lugana.  I haunt a local resale shop fairly regularly for cross stitch leaflets, magazines, etc.  Sometimes I walk out empty handed but sometimes I find something exciting.  One day I found a big plastic "bag" (from a bedspread) full of different colors of lugana, some even full yards.  $10!  I was a little disappointed in the count but there was so much fabric there, I thought I could figure something out to do with it.

Anyway, here's my witch:

I love over one stitching so much. I don't have much 25 count fabric, just some nice yellow.
