Witch for a Night by Turquoise Graphics and Designs

Chart: This Turquoise Graphics & Designs chart is printed on one page of heavy cardstock in large clear easy to see and easy to differentiate symbols. TGD also provide on their website a Floss Card and Journal Page for you to print out and use for this design. Fabulous! I’ve not seen another designer offer this.

Stitches: Pattern uses whole cross stitch, fractional stitches, backstitch and straight stitch.

Materials: DMC stranded cotton and one Kreinik blending filament. Stitched on Wichelt 28ct “Star Sapphire ” Linen.

Designer’s Notes: “Let your inner witch rule for a night!”

Why I was attracted to this design: While this is a companion piece to Witch’s Brew, I actually bought this chart to stitch for a friend. She is of the Pagan persuasion and I swear she could have modeled for this design! So this design appeals both to my Gothic sensibilities and on a very personal note as I could well imagine that hat brim tipping up and seeing a very good friend’s face smiling back at me.

So why haven’t I stitched it? I’m ashamed to say I already have two pieces in the works for this friend. A large one for a significant birthday that I missed and a smaller one that was a replacement gift when I realised the larger one wasn’t going to be finished in time. Turned out I didn’t get the smaller one done either!  Gah! Starting a third would merely bury me in guilt and shame – far better to finish one of the ones I’ve already started I think.

Where can you buy it? Turquoise Graphics & Designs is very much in business and this chart is still in print.  You can buy this from your LNS or ONS for around $9.00 (US)

Discussion questions: Again this is mainly DMC with some Kreinik blending filament in the trousers and neckline. I’m tempted to add some gold in the hat brim and the steam curlicues. Any thoughts or suggestions?
