Horrified HD

I was going to save this one for later, but I just couldn't resist. It's been sitting on my desk, and I've been looking at it....

I'm also working on a baby announcement for the friend that just had a baby. It uses mostly perle cotton to make smyrna crosses, so it's taking a while. It's not nearly as simple as I thought when I saw the pattern online. Still, it will be very pretty when done.

I haven't stitched a baby announcement for myself. Not sure why.

Becky asked if I could have stitched the cording on Porcelain Nosegay. The cording has to be attached to both the piece and the frame to hold it firmly in place. Double-stick tape holds the piece in the frame, but the edges flop a little. And to stitch the cording to the frame would probably cause the satin to run. Good thought, though, Becky! :-)

What a perfect Hallowe'en piece! Love it!

I didn't stitch a baby announcement for DS#1 until he was 3 - never found one I liked until then. DS#2 is still waiting for his....

Great little Halloween piece! I love the Whimzis and have some of them, but for some reason they always get pushed to the bottom of my pile and never get finished.
