Cheryl's September Spooky Words Ornament

shake, rattle and roll aren't usually spooky words ... but once you apply them to a skeleton, they take on a new meaning and there you have it!

shake them bones!
rattle them bones!
and heads will roll

The pattern is Shake, Rattle 'n Roll by Pam Lewis and Susan Rohm of Praiseworthy Stitches.  Featured in Just Cross Stitch magazine in the October 2015 issue.

I stitched this pattern on a wee piece of 32 ct. tea stained fabric of unknown origin.  2over2 for the skeleton & border, and 1over1 for the text - using both magnifying glasses and a hand held magnifying lens (where did I put my good eyes?)

I'm not sure how I will finish it, just yet ... but stay tuned for further developments.
Happy Spooky Stitching!
