If you're familiar at all with my blog you'll know that I include embroidery in a lot of the stuff that I do. I love the freedom that embroidery gives you to make any design you want a reality.
With that said I follow the Feeling Stitchy blog and every month they host a stitch along that I try to participate in when I can. For September they had a halloween themed stitch along and considering that halloween is my all time favorite holiday (Christmas is of course a close second) I had to get in on this one.
The design was made by Cathy Gaubert and it's called Hallowe'en Trio.
For the ghost I used a brown thread for the outline and a cream embroidery thread to fill in the body. I don't know what technique I used to fill in the body since I made it up as I went, but I'm sure it does have a name.
I'm pretty darn happy with how it turned out, and plan to make it into a mug rug or something similar for myself.
Feeling Stitchy blog has planned for us in October.
If you're interested in seeing what the other participants made there's a Flickr group here.
