I really do love everything. I'm trying to find an iron so I can put my skulls on something. LOL, haven't even figured out what yet.

The city has a leash law, but if you call them about an animal not on a leash, they won't do anything. Yesterday a really mean dog came into our yard and growled at me, then at a lady walking down the road. It was foaming and really agitated. It was the third time we have seen this dog off it's leash, and we have complained before, but they won't  do anything about it. Hubby called animal control and they said it wasn't an emergency. So, I went to town hall and had a long conversation about the what if factor. I don't know if it did any good, but it's on them if they don't do anything next time.

I got my package from smushisweetbaboo. It is AWESOME!!! Seriously It's freakin' GREAT!
A A wallet is a great fabric and a charm bracelet.                                      Action Shot

Two cell phone charms. (one already one my cell) and a crocheted skull magnet.             And a great coat hook.

An incredibly intricate embroidered skull.       
                         
A crappy picture of a great painting entitled "Shadow of the Leviathan"

And stenciled potholder.
Everything is so awesome. The painting, embroidery and coat hook are all going to be part of my waredrobe, that I'm currently skullifying.  Thank you Smushisweetbaboo!!!!!

lol sweet...I'm glad you like!!!

Funny thing...I actually meant that coat hook as the holder for the pot holders because I was like, oh, man...I can't give her pot holders without an appropriately cool hook for them!!! lol. I'm glad it works for you on multiple levels...

sorry I didn't send an explanation...for example, with those cell phone charms, the squiddy looking one was inspired by a cthulu looking skull image on DragonsMuse's wists...and then I noticed that there were lots of squiddy, tentacled things on her wists....so I was inspired to do the Shadow of the Leviathan painting, especially since DM had said she wanted stuff to cover up her walls! XD The large item was the sugar skull I embroidered, it took probably around fifteen hours on and off throughout the week!!! (and that's just a guesstimate.) The charms on the bracelet are vintage bubble gum charms and cool skull guitar picks. And I just wanted to try out the tutorial here for those cute little change purses.

Dragonsmuse, I really hope this gets you well on the way to an awesome and creative skull-themed home!!!

lol seriously now I am addicted...I designed it (oh btw that was an original design) and then once I was stitching it I just kept adding to it...I had to force myself to stop...but my husband helped me maintain the right balance, like he told me to put the white stitching in the background to really give it that great texture.

I'm working on my next embroidery project for my next swap that's due next week. Hopefully I can get it done in time!!!

I bought a few Sublime Stitching patterns and a book (I think Doodle Stitch) in Nov. and yet to have picked up the skill. I am kinda scared, I am afraid I will turn the thread into a ball of knots!
