Snowman-of-the-Month-OctoberChristmas decorations are out in stores already? Say what!?! But it’s not even Halloween yet. (*stomps foot and pouts*)

Walking Jack is Chart of the Week

walking-jack-halloween-cross-stitchNot everything for Halloween has to be spooky or stitched in 90% black floss. Walking Jack by CM Designs is fun, cute, and definitely still has the spirit of Halloween at heart.

It’s a quick stitch at only 104w x 90h stitch count and less than 10 floss colors required, so can reasonably have him all stitched up and ready for Halloween this year no problem.
