Cross Stitch, Finishes, Great Pumpkin Challenge 2010, Halloween, Mirabilia

Happy dancing before bedtime

I was trying my hardest to get this piece finished on Saturday, but alas it is now 1.10am on Sunday morning and I’ve just put the final beads on, so I didn’t quite make it!  But it doesn’t matter, ‘cos regardless I’m doing one HUGE happy dance for this one! 😀  I couldn’t wait until tomorrow for decent daylight to take a photo – it looks much better in real life 😀

    Which cross stitch and Needlework magazine issue was this in? I’d would love to get a back order issue from the company. Thanks, Jane
