CJC Day 21 - AAN Spider Banner

I picked up Spider Banner when my LNS was having a Halloween sale in 2012. I'm happy to be finally stitching it. I waited because I had seen a few variations and wasn't sure how I wanted to have the spider colouring to look. 

The original:

And my start:

I was able to get a surprising amount done tonight since DH took care of everything else to let me stitch. I'm stitching on 32 count opalescent fabric that I received in an exchange in 2012 I believe. I'm stitching 2 over 2 with WDW Cherry Vanilla and Cyclamen so far. The border is in WDW Gunmetal. I absolutely love stitching this one up. It's going so easily and so far no frogging either. 

At first I had a little trouble with the 2 over 2 on 32 count since I usually only stitch 28 count over 2, but it all came together after a couple thread lengths. I'll leave the spider colours as a secret for now, but I think it will look really interesting all together. 

Happy Stitching, 



Thanks for any comments!

This week it's time to choose the designer we stitch the most. I think it's easy for some, but I tend to hop around and stitch on...
