Halloween Finish for Valentine's Day!

I actually finished the stitching of this in time for Halloween 2014, but never got the two bat buttons until last week!

It is called Stitcher's Brew #157 by Little River.

Entire Piece
I used the fabric (28 ct "Carnival" Cashel "Colorscapes Hand-Dyed Fabric" from Picture this plus) and Weeks Dye Works & Needle Necessities (now Threadworx) threads called for in the pattern. It is approx. 7 inches wide and 15 3/4 inches tall. It includes a needle and two Another Button Company Bat Buttons.

I am not sure how I will finish finish it. Probably not a frame since it is not something I would hang on the wall all year or have a temporary place big enough to show it off during October. I may do a wall hanging which seems easier to display. Not sure.

I must tell you I have a goof in it. I miss read the thread to use for the top line - Stitcher's Brew and figured it out when I got to the W. It is supposed to be orange like the pumpkin, but I thought this color worked too rather than rip it all out!

Happy Stitching!!

Nice. I'd make it into a wall hanging - maybe with a quilted border so you can roll it or fold it away when it's not hanging.
