1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Positive Affirmation Swap - Butterfly on: March 20, 2019 01:05:59 PM
I made this hopping for Audio for the positive affirmation swap. I love the saying and colors she chose.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Halloween Cross Stitch Cat on: September 28, 2018 06:17:21 PM
I made this for my partner in the Vintage Halloween Swap. Her decor is mid-century modern. I'm very proud of how this turned out.

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / TM Patches Rainbow Swap on: March 20, 2018 01:17:56 PM
I made a couple of TM patches for the Rainbow Swap and thought I'd share them here.





Trust me, the stitching looks a little better than the photos. lol

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Graveyard Raven on: November 02, 2016 09:11:04 PM
This is a hoop I did for artsycandice in a Halloween swap. The moon is done in glow in the dark thread for a little extra punch.



and some detail:



artsycandice took the pics, she did a great job.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Halloween Owl on: October 31, 2013 08:03:54 PM
I did this pattern from the Just Cross Stitch Halloween Ornament magazine. I used fiddlers cloth instead of the black background suggested and I think it turned out pretty well. This is before it was hooped.



I love the orange and yellows in this. I liked it so much I did another one on black, but that picture didn't turn out.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mad Witch on: October 25, 2013 04:59:39 AM
My partner received in the OTT October Holiday Swap so it's safe to post this. She and I both had Mad Hatter Day as one of our themes so I made a Mad Hatter witch hat.



I used satin thread for the spider because I thought it might give it a little sheen but it didn't really. It still adds a little contrast though.
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Early Halloween on: September 27, 2013 04:25:41 AM
I did this for the Vintage Halloween Swap and my partner has received so I thought I'd share it here.



My partner, pennydreadfull, likes Edgar Allan Poe as much as I do. And she also likes Victorian themes so I thought this fit perfectly. This is the picture she took of it because her photo kung fu is better than mine.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Plan 9 - The Most Sinister Plan of All on: March 12, 2013 05:38:52 PM
I recently saw Plan 9 From Outer Space and it has so many great lines I was inspired to preserve one of them in needlework.



The picture is a little overexposed but I used florescent green for the aliens and I wanted them to show up better.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Nightmare to Embroider on: June 06, 2010 10:06:00 PM
I did this piece for the monster swap currently in progress. Since my partner has received I think it's safe to post pics. She said she liked Freddy Krueger so I did this:



I found a site called DragoArt.com that has how-to tutorials for drawing our favorite monsters. It's pretty cool. Here's the link: http://www.dragoart.com/tuts/2323/1/1/how-to-draw-freddy-krueger.htm

The embroidery is backstich, satin stitch, french knots (eyes) and long and short stitch (which I had never done and was more difficult than I anticipated). The knives are done with metallic thread to make them shiny.

Here is a close up:



Overall I'm happy with how it turned out. I hope my partner agrees.  Smiley
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Blackwork Bookmark on: April 21, 2010 09:40:51 PM
Here's a little blackwork bookmark I made from a pattern I found on the internet. The flowers are pansies so I thought they would look nice in blue. It's backed with felt. I wanted to do blanket stitch around the edge but it's been so long since I've done it I had to look up a tutorial.  Embarrassed
