One Last Halloween Gift

Wow, I think this the most gift charts and posts that I've done in a single month. 
This will be my final Halloween chart then it will be on to Christmas and winter if my designing mojo holds up.

"Hardanger Spider's Web"
6" x 6" (78 x78) on 28 count evenweave

Again I didn't write any directions for this one, I suck at Hardanger directions, but you can go to Nordic Needles Stitch Dictionary and find quite a few examples and directions for the stitches. I added Doves Eyes and Reverse Branch just as an example, I really want to see where your vision takes the chart.

I charted it for white or DMC 762 for the web, straight stitch for the outside webbing being couched down with petite crystal or clear seed beads as dew drops, and black for the spiders. 

I know there are other websites that you can get directions from but I can't seem to find them among my bookmarks, so if you have other sources I'd love to hear about them so I can add them to the post.

Take Care Everyone & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy
