Pixel Power Gandalf


Gandalf from Pixel Power
This was stitched on a piece of 28 count evenweave from a Crafty Kitten grab bag.

For those of you who wondered, the runes spell out Gandalf's speech while facing the Balrog on the bridge in the Mines of Moria - "You cannot pass.  I am a servant of the Secret Fire, Wielder of the Flame of Anor.  The Dark Fire will not avail you Flame of Udun.  Go back to the shadow. L.O.T.R."

Snowflower Diaries Spring Witch



Spring Witch by The Snowflower Diaries
I stitched her on a piece of random 28 count linen I had using the recommended DMC.  
The only change I made was to give the witch green eyes and I used satin stitch for the broom.

This is the cute little Witchy Kitty from Carand88.
Stitched on 28count Burnt Orange Jobelan, my favourite fabric for Hallowe'en stitching.

I changed the main colour from cream to a nice silver grey (DMC 415) because it looks nicer on the orange.
I also changed the eyes to metallic green DMC.

Kokopelli

Kokopelli
Native American fertility deity also associated with music (hence the pipe) and "an important conveyor of information and trinkets from afar, a Story Teller, par excellence".
Chart from Southwest Designs by Jenny Rasmussen.

I stitched him on 32 count evenweave over 1 using a Jodyri Variegated thread called Peacock Feathers.

Teresa Wenztler Futurecast

Teresa Wenzler Futurecast conversion

I wanted a dragon and I wanted books, maybe a little dragon sitting on a pile of books?  So I googled around and found this conversion on Deviant Art.  She took the standard Futurecast chart and changed the crystal ball to a book!  Perfect.

Teresa Wentzler designed this dragon to be easily converted into any colour scheme you like.  There is an ornate border and she recommends choosing a variegated thread for it then matching the colours for the dragon.  I left the border off and chose a scheme based on one in the Gallery.

Witch

I found this freebie on the subrosa blog and stitched it for a Halloween blog where members stitch a themed Halloween ornament each month.  This month's theme obviously is "witch".  It was a little big for an ornament stitched over 2 on my (go-to) 32 count so I stitched it over one on 25 count.
