This is an octopus getting ready for bed.


He has everything he needs.

 A toothbrush


A book of "Octo Tales" bedtime stories


A glass of water


And his octo stuffie Grin


  This embroidery is pretty large, about 8X10 inches. This is my second "big" embroidery project ever, my first project was similar, but about 1/2 the size.
  He's done with DMC floss, and he took about 10 hours to do, including drawing the pattern.

That is adorable!!  That's all the things my daughter needs before bed... only we have to get them for her about 8-10 times before she actually falls asleep! Cheesy

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

Thanks guys Smiley

I like the idea of making him into a pillowcase, but it would have to be "decorative only" because a few of the colors of floss used are really scratchy!! I guess I should have thought of that beforehand Roll Eyes

What a cute idea, and great execution! He looks so sleepy and yawny. I use all the same things to get ready for bed, except my stuffie is a dog.  Smiley
