Miss Mary Mack - all dressed for Halloween

Ugh lighting stitching for photos stinks.  Any advice?  Anyway a couple of weeks ago I was able to FINALLY finish Miss Mary Mack (La di da) into a pillow, it was my first throw pillow and it came out pretty good, even if it took almost my one whole free day during Fall Break.  that is Black fabric with silver buttons on the back. I discovered my sewing machine does not have a buttonhole foot so i just attached the buttons. I added fringe to the edges because I am tired of finishing plain pillows.  She will be Halloween regular :)

Just a(nother) little snowman

This one Took me years, literally! It has been half done forever. (Note to self- snowmen over one are BORING). He is by Twisted threads in the 2003 JCS ornament mag.

Lee, I am sending you the snowman pattern from the last post. ( as soon as I email you to get your address). Maybe you can pay it forward to Tammy :) (Kim, I have something for you too).

Sampler Snowman

I finished finished this guy a couple of days ago. Don't ask me when I finished stitching him, but I know it was this year ( I think... ) ANYWAY he is Sampler Snowman by HomespunElegance. I want to pass on the pattern along with my leftover Caron Wildflowers thread in "Fiesta"(for the alphabet) if any one wants it. Just leave a note in the comments, if there is more than one ill do a drawing :)

Halloween finish

I just finished Halloween Acorn House by Jeanette Douglas designs from last years JCS Halloween issue, I am having trouble finding nice fabric for the back, a lot of Halloween fabric is too cutesy for this.
