Happy Friday! Dracula Book Cover Happy Dance!

I got so wrapped up in everything going on (job move, etc.) that I totally forgot to post something I finished!   This is a freebie from Life's Trivial Pursuits.  I learned about it from Jo at Serendipitous stitching.   I stitched it on Aries from Sparklies.

I started it on December 21, 2016 and I finished it on February 14th, 2017  (which is just about the time I accepted the new position and went into OMG, we have to pack and move and get a new place, not necessarily in that order! overdrive ;)

I cannot, for the life of me, get my camera to take a color accurate picture, so you'll have to forgive and trust me on it.   I've doctored them as best I can, but Aries is a cool toned, gorgeous rich red that was just perfect for this piece.  I look forward to framing it.

I used petite treasure braid in gold (PB02) for the lit window and the actual "Dracula" lettering, and I used the B5200 instead of regular white for the moon.  The rest is black.   I love the way it came out.

Thankfully, I keep a spreadsheet of the stuff I've stitched, so when my blogging fails, I can update myself :)


  1. That is just gorgeous!

  2. This looks gorgeous. I love the Sparklies fabrics and your stitching is so neat, even in the gold lettering!

    1. Thank you! I always railroad/fuss with the Petite Treasure Braid to make sure it lays right; it's great to know it's noticeable :D
