Autumn and/or Halloween

 

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Autumn and/or Halloween


This design is called Haunted House by Jodyri.  One of my stitching group friends did this on some pink fabric and I loved it so had to stitch it myself.  I've used dark blue though as I thought it was more spooky!



I've used DMC glow in the dark thread for the ghosts but I couldn't get a decent photo so you'll just have to trust me!

Added Sparkle at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Add Sparkle


Here's a quick card I've made using glitter washi tape from my stash in shades of pink and silver.  I got the inspiration from Pinterest.  I neeed something quick and easy this month as we've been decorating and today was the first day I've been able to get at my stash beacuse of stuff everywhere!  I'm quite pleased with the effect though.

Anything Goes at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Anything goes.


I stitched this little beer motif from a design library in World of Cross Stitching magazine.

This is a birthday card for my Dad who likes a pint. I only had this one sheet of the tie paper in my stash but I think the colours go quite well together.  It's so hard to find patterned papers that work well for men!

For a Baby or Child at Unicorn

 

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is For a Baby orChild

This chart was a free cover kit from World of Cross Stitching magazine but I've not used the aperture card that came with it and have used card, paper and embellishments from my stash.  I'm going to give it to my friend whose baby is due this month.  Let's hope her scans are correct and she is having a boy!

Shaped Cards at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Shaped Cards.

This kit is from The Nutmeg Company and I bought it at the NEC a couple of years ago, being super organised for my parents' golden wedding anniversary.  It's quite fiddly to cut the shape out but I love the finished effect.




It's also full of gold metallic thread which is my least favourite thing to stitch with but you can't have a golden wedding card without gold!

Include an Animal at Unicorn

Good morning everyone, it's time for a new monthly challnge at Unicorn.  Our theme this time is Include an animal.

We got 2 kittens last year and I couldn't agree more with the sentiment in this picture! Cats are my favourite though, even if they do wake you up and destroy your furniture!



I Found this image in my stash, it's by Hunkydory.  The little felt stars were a bargain in Sainsbury's after Christmas.
