Hallowe'en ABC

SpookyABC.jpg Spooky ABC

The ABC and border came from a book by Better Homes and Gardens called "Cross Stitcher's Big Book of Alphabets and Borders".  And yes, it does exactly what it says on the tin!!  I have used this book alot.
I centralised the alphabet and changed the shape behind the L to another skull rather than a beige paper bag with a white thing sticking out the top.  The finished framed piece now lives in the Large Boy's room.

Stitched on 14count black aida using recommended DMC.
