Halloween Smalls

I finished these cute designs just in time for the October 2015 Smalls check-in.  I filled each little tin with chocolates and mailed them off to my DIL and to DS2 GF.

2015 Halloween Gift
Designer: Prairie Schooler
For: M and C

Both designs were stitched on 28ct even weave.  I did change the colors on the Cat…green eyes, red nose/mouth, purple bow tie, and gold stars ~ I like it much better this way. 
Each design was mounted onto the cover of a small metal tin that I found at Hobby Lobby.

For: C

For: M

I completed another scarf, using the yarn that I purchased back in May 2013 at Purl Soho in NYC.  Yikes, 2013 !!! It took me that long to find a project for this gorgeous yarn??? 





The scarf came in handy for this weeks photography assignment…photographing texture.  Here is a sampling of the images I snapped.





Little Emma turned 1 last month.  At 3 1/2 pounds she is still very tiny, very cute, and at times very naughty, but we love her. Unlike Lily, her coloring is off.  She is much too white around the face but we have no plans to show or breed her so it really doesn't matter. Sweet Lily turned 7 last May. She has a lot of patience when Emma nips at her ears, yips in her face, and tries to steal her toys.

Not sure which I like better, Marie--your cute Halloween finishes or the idea that the little tins are filled with chocolate :) Really cute gift idea!

And oh, is Emma so sweet in her Halloween photo shoot. You've taken some wonderful pictures and it looks like you're really enjoying your assignments...

Happy Halloween to you!

These Halloween tins are fantastic. A great idea how to use the round shapes of the designs other than a round ornament.
Adorable, these pictures of Emma and Lily.
