All Powerful and Knowing Ouija

Primitive Needle
The Talking Board
1x2 36ct Relic PTP linen
WDW Charcoal
WDW Bark
DMC 535

Oh wise Ouija--will a publishing company sign me to a three book deal?



Will Hollywood buy the movie rights to my series?



Will I be able to finally buy that dream house in Topanga Canyon?



Will I ever get all the cat and dog hair out of the house? Will I ever get the pile of laundry off the kitchen table? Will anyone in my family pick up after themselves?




I guess I can live with that! I love Ouija boards, always have. My friend Linette and I would spend hours asking it questions. This was a fun stitch and quick for me. I think I started it on Sunday and finished it this morning. It was designed by The Primitive Needle' Check out more of her designs. Salem Remembered is up next in my to stitch pile. I should mention that there are two mistakes in this piece, all my fault, not the chart's. I ripped back three times and could find my mistake or I more than likely kept making the same mistake over and over. I decided late last night I could live with that. I seriously doubt anyone but me knows they are there. I also made one other change because I ran out of WDW's Charcoal and used DMC 535 for the stars at the bottom. I'm debating whether to coffee stain those stars to make them match better. I wish I had thought to just toss the whole skein of DMC in the coffee pot but when I originally compared the colors I thought they were a better match, but I'm happy with the results and I started out with a partial skein of the Charcoal so I'm pretty sure one full skein would be enough.






P.S. Thank you all for the sweet comments about my Papaw.

This is starting to get scary. I've got this one in my stash too. I bought some of that spray on stain. Can't remember the name right now. I'm thinking of using that on the Talking Board - when I finally stitch it.

Great finish. And in the pictures the stars don't look any different than the rest of the piece.

Wouldn't this be cute finished into a tray with a glass top?

Very funny, Melissa! Your fabric/fiber choices couldn't have been more perfect. We used to play Ouija boards when I was a kid and usually ended up scaring ourselves to death! Congrats on a wonderful finish!
