Happy Halloween!

August is the traditional month to start thinking about Halloween stitching and VRN has some spooky selections for your stitching pleasure! Just in are two new ones from Barbara Ana: Three Witches (shown) and Witchy Harvest. The black raven on Stickideen VonDer Wiehenberg’s Black Raven Quaker adds just a touch of spirit to the piece if you’re looking for a more understated tribute to the season.
