Stitch Maynia 2021 Start #11

Thank you for your kind comments on yesterday's post. It was such a shock. I don't know whether the family will have a memorial or something since we're still living in pandemic times, but I'm checking to see when they post any information. 

Today I'm back to another seasonal project and this is a little larger than the previous ones, but still not really big. This is another one I'd saved, printed, and stuck in a binder ages ago. I don't think you can find this one any more, I was trying to find it on their website, but it didn't seem to be in the freebie section any more. Here's my start:

Halloween Freebie by Passione Ricamo
stitched 2 over 2 with DMC 310 
on 28ct Brittney evenweave Aries by Sparklies

I think you can tell this is a haunted house style mansion by this little start. It's mostly black with a little PTB to sparkle up the moon and there's a "BOO" phrase at the bottom. I might use some Etoile instead of the PTB, it has some nice sparkle as well and is so much easier to work with. 

I don't think I've stitched on Sparklies fabric before, it's very nice and the reddish colour seemed to fit this design. I can see why so many people prefer these fabrics. I don't think I'm too choosy about fabrics, as long as they're easy to stitch on. 

I hope you've all had a good day and happy stitching!



  1. Love the beautiful fabric. Another great new start.

  2. I love Sparklies fabrics. I can never remember which 28 counts I like, I do like 32 count Murano though!

    1. This one seems pretty nice, so perhaps it's Brittney. :)

  3. Sparklies have some great fabric, and this one is perfect for some spooky silhouettes!


Thanks for any comments!

Finally I'm back after a rough weekend. I had a lot of hopes for that 3 days off, but spent most of it with a severe migraine, so didn&#...
