Drawing a bit of a long bow ...

... on choosing my tombstone design for this month!

You see, I searched high and low for a tombstone design that I liked (unfortunately I didn't seem to see any of the lovely ones which have popped up on the blog this month).

But, in my searching, I found this wonderful free design by La Comtesse de la pointe de croix. She has an absolutely gorgeous blog and has a lot of wonderful free designs (nearly 150), so well worth a visit.

Now, if you look very closely on the left hand side, you can see some little crosses - they are my "tombstones".  Tiny, but they are there.

I finished it as a plain cushion with some leftover quilt fabric on the back.

Happy Halloween

I love this design and it was such a joy to stitch - I love the castle, especially.

Fantastic choice! I stitched this one some time ago. On my favourite orange fabric. I scrapbooked it recently so I ought to show it again!
