Fabrics for Halloween Stitches and others

I came across some aida fabric that I thought might be so fun for some Halloween or fall-type stitches.  You know how it is when you see something and you just can’t get it out of your head.   Yep, I had to order it and a couple other pieces to keep it Company.  All of these pieces are 18 count except for the green, and it was the perfect green I was looking for for a particular chart and only available in 14 count so that’s what I got.   There are also a purple and sort of coral colored square perfect size for some smalls that were sent along for free along with a pretty needle threader (the count on the coral looks like 18 and the purple is 14 or 16).  They came from WitchsGardenCrafts on Etsy and the fabrics are just as lovely in person as they were on my computer – I love that when it happens!

Here’s the one I decided I needed for Halloween stitching.  It’s called “This is Halloween” so very appropriate for a Halloween stitch. 🙂

My photo doesn’t capture the colors perfectly, but my camera kept fogging up – it’s really hot and VERY humid outside and this was the second time I went outside to try to get a nonblurry photo.  It has more brownish undertones so doesn’t look quite so gray.  And this green – because you KNOW I love green – is so perfect and is called Sloth; the gray below it has some purple undertones to it and is called Dark and Stormy (and would definitely be good for a spooky stitch)

And then here’s the final one I ordered called Tortuga and the two samples.

All very pretty so I’m going to have to do some thinking on which chart I want to stitch on the splotchy one.  Teresa Kogut’s patreon charts for this month were all Halloween and I really like them all so will be picking between one of them.

And look! – Each of the fabrics had a little silver key charm attached to the card as the shop logo is keys.  Such a cute extra touch.  They will definitely be added to some smalls as embellishments.
