Jo's June Ornament

Free choice.  I always put a couple of free choice options in the themes so people can stitch their favourite thing without having to fit it in to a specific category.  But does anyone else find this one really difficult to make the decision?

I was just overwhelmed with choices!  So to narrow it down, I selected one magazine and said "choose a design from that".  The magazine was the Just Cross Stitch Hallowe'en preview issue from 2011.  The designer is Blue Ribbon Designs and the design is Boo Mansion:

Stitched on 32 count Twilight Blue linen

and scrapbooked with its companion piece Owls by Midnight:

Of course, as soon as I started stitching this one I realised that July's theme is Haunted Houses.  So now I have to find a different Haunted House for that one!

Yes, I agree, free choice means that there are too many options! But isn't that fun? Love your choice for June, Jo.
