I began my Sugar Skull cross stitch series in 2010 after visiting The National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago, Illinois. Día de los Muertes, or Day of the Dead, is celebrated on November 2 (All Souls’ Day) each year. I was, and I am, exceptionally inspired by the beautiful brightly decorated sugar skulls & dancing skeletons. Currently my series includes 9 versions. My goal is to merge traditional cross stitch designs with my visions while honoring the richness of Mexican Culture.

Finished size: 82 x 101 stitches (using 14 count fabric the size is approx. 6" x 7 1/4") and uses 6 DMC colors.
