October is all about Halloween, so I chose this cute little design from Barbara Ana to stitch. I just love her work cause it is always so much fun~
Pattern: Barbara Ana "Halloween Snail"
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 18ct oatmeal aida by Regency Mills
Size: 2.5" x 3.75"
Completion Date: 10-06-2008
Finishing Date: 10-08-2008
I chose an orange shiny fabric as backing and I think it matched up pretty good~
This is also my first time trying to make an ornament, and I think it turned out ok. Next time I'll remember to leave more fabric along the edge, though, cause I barley had enough this time to cover the edge and one side of the ornament is not pretty..... Here is a nice instruction on how to make ornaments~
This is the good side...... ;-)
I remembered that as a kid I just love Halloween, not only because we got to play different parts each time, but also that it's a time when we were actually allowed to ask for candies and stored them up for the whole year. Now that I think of it, my sister and I had been a snail once~
This was actually a dance costume from dancing class. I guess my parents weren't really the creative type... LOL. You can see that there was a robot in the background that was way cooler then what we had~
I appreciate all of your kind comments, and thank you all for stepping by~
