Wings and Things

Way back in September I got a copy of Just Cross Stitch 2012 Special Collector's Issue Halloween.  Inside there are a ton of cross stitch projects that I want to make!
My younger daughter liked Wings and Things.  On a trip to Spring Robin in Salisbury, NC., I was happy to find that she had the fabric needed to make this, 32 count monster mash Belfast linen from Picture This Plus.  I was so excited.
 I used  different threads than the directions called for. I used a bit more than 3 skeins of (so get 4) Simply Shaker Sampler thread  - Black Raspberry Jam 7021 from The Gentle Art. I used DMC  Satin Floss S976 or 30976.

I think it turned out well.
