Nevermore cross stitch project

Quoth the raven, Nevermore. You’ve seen it before. The Nevermore cross stitch pattern, and now here it is! Finally, after almost a month of hard work, I’ve finished stitching Nevermore. As you may know, it’s a pattern found in the 2017 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue. It’s a fairly small stitch count if you just…

Haunted Mansion Demon Wallpaper

Disney’s Haunted mansion has my all time favorite wallpaper. The Demon Wallpaper. Spooky faces glare at you from a purple background. It’s simple, black, white, and purple.
