Trick or Treat?

Hooray!! My autumn exchange finally made it to France and to Isabelle. I can't believe it took over two and a half weeks - you can get to Paris in an hour from here! Did it travel by rowing boat?! I'd almost given up hope.

This is the first of four seasonal pieces Isabelle and I are exchanging. I knew Isabelle loved witches, so I couldn't do an autumn exchange without a witch on it. I don't have any witchy charts, so I started looking and the one that caught my eye was Trick or Treat by Shepherd's Bush. I knew this was one of Isabelle's favourite designers, so the decision was made and here it is:


I really enjoyed doing this. So much so I promptly signed up for the Shepherd's Bush exchange! It's not a chart I'd ever have picked normally and I've never done a big Shepherd's Bush design before (only a couple of needlerolls), but it was great fun. So glad it got there and Isabelle likes it!
