I received my squares from Lenna for the Fair Square Halloween Round. They are so beautiful!
The design she stitched is from the Halloween issue of Just Cross Stitch. It is a Plum Street Samplers design, which I love. However, she switched up the design and fibers a bit which fit me better.
I just love what Lenna did with the design, especially the peacock!
Lenna stitched this on Cobblestone Belfast linen 32 ct. She used a silk over dye (Peacock) Waterliles for the peacocks and Butternut Squash for the half moon. She has never been fond of pineapples so she put a half moon in it's place cause she has always collected and loved half moons. Come to find out on her name crest, (for her maiden name), one of the symbols is a half moon. She used Sassy Strings hand dyed floss in Golden Promise for the crown, Weeping Willow for the 2010 and the flower petals. CC Muddy Puddle was used for the sheep's body. A more carroty color was used for the pumpkin mixed with the Golden Promise. Golden Promise was used for the legs and head. The purple and orange are from Lizzie Kate's Boo colors that she did her name and Waco, Tx. with.
They are just perfect for me. Thank you so much, Lenna!
