A Regal Reveal

Today is Reveal Day for the Stitch and Stash Monthly Challenge. This month we chose Lizzie*Kate's Hello Spring. The album can be found here. I chose to finish mine as a long pincushion, mostly because I wanted an excuse to use some of this wonderful funky lime pompom trimming. Yes, this is "The Trimming that Taste Forgot", I love it, there is a very real danger that I will stitch it to anything that sits still for long enough...
And why "regal" you are wondering as you look at my decidedly un-regal pincushion, well we just found out that Naomi will be Carnival Queen for 2010/11. She is as excited as a dog with two tails! Expect LOTS of pictures (be afraid, be very afraid...)

Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

Not Naomi apparently, at least not when the wolf looks like this:-

Hmmmm. Can't blame her really...

Anyway you might remember a while ago I made her this little ornament using a complimentary pattern from Paulette's blog.

Well it was one of her friends' birthday last week, and this particular friend is another avid member of "Team Jacob" so Naomi had me make another ornament for her, and here it is: Jacob Ornament Mark II.

I put a little silver apple charm and a wolf on it

I hope her friend likes it

An exchange and some undead things

No, I haven't dropped off the face of the planet, we've just been busy, so I'm late posting this but there was an April Fool's exchange at Stitch and Stash and this is the wonderful parcel I recieved from Angie (no blog as far as I know).
Look at all these lovely threads and fabrics! It took me ages to spot the "fool". Hint: look at the DMC in the bottom right corner...
Eloise was admiring a keyring with a strange little plushie creature on it yesterday. Anyway to cut a long story short I retro-engineered it and I've come up with these little zombie kitties (because even the undead need love).
I only meant to make a couple, but they kind of got away from me. My favourite is the little vampire one, but then I've got a bit of a soft spot for vampires (the brooding sort, not the sparkly ones).
