24. Oberlin Samplers Witches


Oberlin Samplers Witches
stitched on 32 count Lime Green Murano

The original design had some random spooky phrases round the edge but as I had already stitched the Hallowe'en Happiness with various spooky phrases I decided to change this to reflect a speech from my favourite Shakespeare play - the Scottish one! 
I also changed the words to the right which said Ghosts and Goblins to "brew a spell". There were no ghosts or goblins in the design!
