Little Skulls


In my post from last week I wrote I wouldn’t post anything autumnish for the rest of this month, but that was when it still looked like we were in the middle of the summer here. But now it’s raining, the wind is blowing around the house and I even saw some leaves falling already, so I guess fall has started here, too. The weather makes me long for orange, brown and red colored stuff, lots of pumpkin recipes and most of all Halloween.

My favorite blog at the moment is Feeling Stitchy; they made me rediscover embroidery. I already found a nice poodle pattern a couple of weeks ago and yesterday I found an adorable Halloween skull garland. I stole the skull pattern and made my own style of garland:

Another favorite blog of mine is TheFreelancer’s Fashion Blog and just now The Freelancer has a give away: an embroidery book! I only know how to make straight stitches and cross stitches, so hopefully I win this book, so I can extend my not so great embroidery skills! If you want to give it a try, too, go here

  1. Leaves are falling here too, but not because of fall. They died from the heat and are falling off. I am not a Halloween person, but I think your goodies are cute.

  3. Thanks for your sweet comment, Liz. I feel the same way; I saw some leaves turning the other day and it's like fall snuck up on me. I might be ready to change my summer wreath to a fall one. :)

  5. My 4 year old son would love for me to make those skulls. He's obsessed with skulls and skeletons lately. He wants to either be a vampire or skeleton for Halloween.

    I love Feeling Stitchy too. I've bought several of their patterns. Just got back into embroidery myself. This is super cute. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday. Can’t wait to see what you share next week. Have a great weekend.

  9. Very cute garland! We have a few leaves but I think it was just because some dried early. I'm seeing pops of color but we have at least 3 weeks before it will be in our full fall colors!

  13. Hi Liz!
    Welcome to the cool side....Fall. You've even gotten into some fun 'skull'duggery. Oh if you have the straight and x-stitch down you have the basics....satin and the lazy daisy are just as easy to name a couple.
