Boo to ewe
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY BARBARA ANA DESIGNS
One of Barbara Ana's favorite animals is a sheep. It keeps popping in unexpected!
Here's one that's made it's way into a Halloween pattern...
You'll love the way the designer used overdyed threads from The Gentle Art to bring beautiful variations in the texture of the pattern. Notice how the threads were stitched, sometimes in a horizontal direction, sometimes vertically, to create contrasting effects.
