Sugar Skull

Last week I started a somewhat larger project (at least large for me, as it will take a couple of weeks to finish it). I found the book Twisted Stitches by Phil Davison via my favorite blog of this moment Feeling Stitchy and am embroidering the Sugar Skull that’s on the cover. I LOVE sugar skulls! Let's hope it's finished just in time for Dia de los Muertos, november 1st and 2nd.

This week I got an award! Katrin  of Me dLux gave me the award. Great honor to know that someone likes my blog so much she wants to give me an award for it!! But… I think anyone who takes the time to write a blog and wants to share ideas with others does deserve this award! So I guess I have to say ‘Thanks, but no thanks’ to the award. Not that I don’t appreciate it, because I certainly do, Katrin!! I hope you understand…

    1. Thank you, Katrin! I wanted to place a button of your blog in this post, to honor you for the honor you gave me, but couldn't find one on your blog. Do you have one (I do not have one myself), so I can still do it?

      Hugs! Liz

    1. It's just cross stitches, but the counting makes it difficult. I made a lot of mistakes myself, but I think it's worth the effort. I just love this sugar skull pattern! Nice weekend! Liz

  11. I have just stitched the sugar skull onto a bag for my sister! I chose the other version though, but can't wait to make this one too. I was fortunate enough to stitch up the zombie bride for the book photo too and I really love the book.

  12. That's a very pretty design! (I was gonna say a very pretty skull, but I don't think a skull itself can be categorized as pretty, lol!)

  13. Very cool crochet Day of The Dead work! And so cool to say thanks but no thanks to the award which are like the blog equivalent of chain letters! You are flattered but then dont want to send the award out to 10 others and name 10 things about yourself!
