As you can see, I’m going to be having a very-cross-stitched Halloween at my house this year. I was lucky enough to have four of my designs featured in the special Halloween issue of Just CrossStitch magazine, which is on newsstands now. Here’s a peak at my projects: first up is the Halloween Welcome Banner, pictured above.

I’ve got to admit, this Monster Movie television is one of the favorite things I’ve ever made. Maybe because I love watching campy 1950s sci-fi movies at Halloween or any time of year.

As you can see from the Nevermore cross-stitched picture above, I’m also a big Edgar Allan Poe fan.

Last but not least is this creepy Spiderweb ornament, which is embellished with a shiny spider charm and silky fringe. (The satin floss from DMC can be a little tricky to work with, but I think it’s totally worth the effort.)

If you’d like to stitch one of these designs–or any of the other 49 projects featured in the magazine–look for this cover on your newsstand. And if you want to finish in time for Halloween, you better start stitching soon.

Happy stitching!
