Free Chart: Halloween

I have been in bed a lot just lately, though changing my Tamoxifen back to the original brand yesterday will hopefully put that right.  And in bed I have been watching Netflix, and in particular a series called Dead Like Me which is kindda ok.  And the very last one in the second series is about Halloween.

When I was a child Halloween wasn't as big as it is now in the UK, but we usually got to do some art work.  We would decorate cauldrons and make up spells...back in the day before the National Curriculum, when English was taught all the time and we all left school being able to read and write.

We always used to have to work to one rhyme in particular.  Do you remember it?

Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble!

And then we would have to finish it and add our own spin.  We used to add all sorts of disgusting things to our cauldron but we had to make it rhyme...so English, but fun and allowing us to use our imagination!

I won't get on my 'state of education' soapbox today: my own teaching days are over and it won't make for good reading.

So instead, have a freebie.

I am not allowed to play with glue in bed so can't make my own cauldron out of black paper and stick in eyeballs and dead man's fingers like we did when we were children.

Instead, have a free cross stitch chart.  If you are unable to access it feel free to email me at stitcheranon@yahoo.co.uk for a pdf copy xxx

Have fun!
