Stitchy Witchy

When I saw the cute witch that Brooke Nolan designed for her group members, I just knew I had to stitch that one right away. Turned out to be perfect for a Halloween exchange on EMS. My partner, Charlie, has received it so it's time for a photo. I decided it might look nice finished as a heart shape, but it needed something in the corners to fill it out. So the old thread crochet came in handy again. A little bat and a ghostie were just the right touch. I'm showing two photos since my camera seemed to to think the colors were different depending on the background. The fabric is really a lilac color from Enchanted Fabrics, like the second picture. But I thought the first was clearer.





I'll draw for the tag contest this evening and try to find the winners tomorrow.

Hi, partner Charlie here!! I absolutely love it, it's so pretty, and I just love her sexy shoes, and the crocheted ghostie and bat, they are unreal, they just add this fab dimension, and the texture is beautiful. I am delighted to be the person who gets to have it, lol, and as this is my firt exchange, like Annie told me, I am addicted already. Mine are to be sent tomorrow, the pressure of it all, yikes. I had a ball, thanks a million Annie, I just love it, it's gorgeous!!
