Black Cat Hollow (Part One)
CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
Here is the first part of a Halloween cross stitch pattern sold in 3 sections. Each part is a strip of landscape and they come on top of each other, framed on each side with a design of a black tree bearing fruit. You can choose to cross stitch this part only on its own, or the complete design.

Here is a view of the full design with all three parts stitched together:
Part One of the Black Cat Hollow shows a rolling landscape with a river. Witches are busying themselves, gathering fruit and harvesting pumpkins while another one, bundle in hand, is flying over the lake on her broom to visit her two friends on the other bank. On each side are trees, including a weeping willow overlooking two small graves nestled in a hollow. Two quirky-shaped houses are perched in the hills, all lit up and welcoming.
The background is illuminated by the moon and stars, with small quaker patterns fitted in between.
The cross stitch tones are soft and warm. The piece is stitched on Zweigart Granite linen, a light khaki that beautifully highlights the range of floss colors, greyish white, orange yellow, and a golden green, in contrast to the black silhouettes.
