A scary tree at the foot of the drive

A Scary tree beckons those who dare to walk through the gate and follow the path.

The second lesson of the Haunted House Mystery class focused on just those two details, the tree and the path.


I love the gnarly look for the tree and branches.  It's a little fiddly but worth the effort.


I did add a little counted stitch to the dark part of the tree trunk near the hole.  Gotta do a little counting somewhere.


I am loving the way this piece is evolving.  It's very dark and gloomy so a little hard for me to embrace;  you know I need bright happy colors.  I may over compensate for this next year in the mystery classes, so prepare yourself.

It's not too late to join us.  Three weeks until lesson three!

Just a little reminder, the Holiday Mystery class is just around the corner.  This is a larger piece and requires more time for the painters to paint so if you would like to start in the holiday season, now is the time to sign up.  It's going to be a fun stitch!
