Nobody wants to see Death himself staring at us with open arms. That’s what makes this Halloween cross stitch pattern so nerve racking – and isn’t that the point of this famous day?
Death almost, but not quite, looks harmless. After all, he’s welcoming us with open arms and look at the adorable heart on his chest. But, then we remember the mission of this famous mythological creature with his skull’s head and his famous sickle, and we all feel a thrill of terror. But isn’t that what Halloween is about? Candy, sure, but a bit of “safe” fright is a part of this wonderful time of year when ghosts and goblins are everywhere.
To make this intriguing Halloween cross stitch piece you will need 5 colors of DMC floss and your finished work will be 139 stitches wide by 192 stitches tall.
