Rita's July Ghosts

Hi, remember me?  I'm SO behind with this group (I've been traveling and model stitching-one was a big one) that if I'm to have a ghost of a chance (get it?) to catch up, I needed to get going this month.

My ghost is part of the design "It's Midnight" by Teresa Murgida.  It appeared in the 2016 JCS Halloween issue.  I thought I'd cut a piece of 32 count natural  linen but I think it's really 28 count.  I subbed WDW chalk, CC Blackbird, and GAST Bittersweet for the called-for colors.

Happy Spooky stitching!

Cheryl's July Ghost

This little ghostie was an experiment.  I was stitching a blackwork pumpkin & thinking about my July ghost.  I wondered if I could make it look like a little ghostie was flying past a patterned wall & the wall would show through him due to his transparency ... hmmm.

So here he is! The entire stitched area is only 1-1/2" tall and just a bit wider.  But I think he turned out pretty cute.
