Jo's February Ornament

I found it quite hard to find the perfect skeleton pattern.  There was only one in the JCS issues I have and I stitched that before.  I remembered this chart from browsing the internet and tried to find it with some difficulty,

I could find the picture on Pinterest via Google Images but no-one ever bothers to credit and link the designers there.  So frustrating!  Eventually I found the chart on the Casa Cenina website.  Hooray!

Here is the Dancing Skeleton on his own, this would make a great ornie by itself:

And here is the completed piece:
Cuore di Hallowe'en by Savoir faire Vailly
Stitched over one on 32count Cognac evenweave
DMC B5200, 310 and 740

When I had finished stitching I showed it to my son and said "It's a skeleton, some ghosts and some long legged beasties, I think".  He was the one who realised that the black shape is actually a skeleton cat.  Sometimes you can be too close to a piece to see it!
