Show me the Bubbels !

I am occupied with a very non-halloweeny stitch at the mo, but took a detour to imagine a gruesome 'situation' because sometimes I have cauldrons on my mind...

reader warning:  this stitch is on fire!
I scanned some linen I had previously aged with walnut crystals to place my digital stitches upon, which provides a pretty good backdrop for imagining how the final piece will look.  In some ways you can see the stitches very clearly when presented this way, in others, it lacks the 'ambiance' of a finished ornament with stuffing and photos with random camera angles... 'Tis why I had to set it on fire! to get the smoke going for a bit of mood ;-D

    1. Thanks for stopping by Annie! now I've discovered the silent auction at the Attic Needlework I know where to find a good home for some of the growing pile of handwork that's mounting up :-D What a great cause.
