A Raven's Reply - Cross Stitch Pattern
Ravens are a bit spooky, aren't they? Edgar Allan Poe's eerie poem, "The Raven," was the inspiration for this fun Halloween design. "A Raven's Reply" is part of my series celebrating birds. Central to the design is a mysterious raven perched on a pumpkin above its unforgettable reply, "Nevermore." A golden moon hangs in the sky with a spider suspended from it. The border is scalloped orange and black, giving the design a vintage Halloween feel. If you're looking for a fun and spooky design to decorate your home, this is the perfect project for you!
