Scream House

This is the description given in the chart...
Deep in the shadows of Happy Hag Hollow, just as the leaves begin to fall and frost nips at the pumpkins... the Scream House comes alive! Ghosts float out of the Halloween decorations, jack-o-lanterns try out their goofy grimaces, and the monsters and ghouls practice scaring each other. Hisses and moans, shrieks and groans fill the night air. Crows, bats, cats and spiders gather to watch the antics while the resident witch, Netty Nightshade, oversees it all from her lovely purple rooms.


There are 18 pieces to stitch and then assemble into the house. It is stitched on 30 count WDW Linen, Tin Roof for the exterior and Peoria Purple for the Interior, with WDW and DMC. The best part isn't shown in the picture (hehehe), the bottom section has the cutest little frog on it. I have finished stitching the "frame" of each of the exterior house parts and now am working on the roof. The last picture shows 2 of the 4 sides and the exterior bottom.

This one is going to take a while to stitch and then assemble but I think it will be worth every minute.









Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

This looks like it will be so much fun to do. I have a chrismas house pattern i want to do but dont have the guts yet, so i'm looking forward to hearing how you get on with this.

Really neat idea to do a house like this - so it'll be done when - in a week? HeHeHe Actually, knowing you and how you stitch, that's a distinct possibility!
Keep up the good work! I do find it interesting that with the name and description, they call it HAPPY Hag Hollow!

Wow, that's pretty cool looking; I might have to look into getting that one. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's done. My kids would love it.

I saw this pattern available in an ad in Just Cross Stitch and I love it SO much! I know there's no way I can do it for this year so I'll enjoy yours when it's done.
