Best Buds

Best Buds

Inspired by the antics of Nigella Shadow (Niggy), my best cat-bud!

I’m patching a hole in my jeans with this!

Happy Stitching!

  1. What a great halloween chart. One of the best I have seen and very effective. Thank you for the great chart.

  2. Thank you, Dolores!


  3. I think he is one of the nicest freekiest Hallowe’en cross stitch patterns I have seen. Thanks.

  4. Hey this is such fun, thanks for sharing the pattern, I am a keen knitter but also like to cross stitch. Thanks again

    • Hi Julie,

      You’re welcome! I’ve used knitting patterns for cross stitch, but I can’t seem to go in the opposite direction and knit anything beyond a straight scarf. My version of a decorative knitting pattern is to do cross stitch on something like a sweater!


  5. Thanks for coming by my other blog: and becoming a follower. I appreciate your support.

  6. Too cute! I won’t have time to stitch this as an ornament for my Halloween tree this year – but I’m saving it for later!
