Finished in a Twisted Threads Rectangle Tin Necklace

My friend, Kim, had a birthday on Friday and I wanted to make something special for her. She’s a Halloween girl, like me, so I decided that a little “Wicked”-ness was in order. I really enjoyed stitching this and the colors were so fun. I had to special order the little tin necklace frame from my LNS, and luckily (even though it was on backorder for awhile), it came in the nick of time. I’ve got enough of the supplies left over to treat myself to this trick, so I think I’ll be wearing a matching pendant sometime soon. I do hope that she likes it.

And since we’re keeping in the Halloween spirit, I thought I’d share my silks for Black’d Skie. You can see how lovely they will be on the fabric. I’m really excited to try out these Pure Palette silks. They were a birthday gift and I’m absolutely thrilled to have them.

And finally, since finishing Kim’s gift I have returned to the Garden of Eerie for a bit. The center tree is coming along. In fact, I’m getting down almost to the snake. Can’t wait for that!

I’m starting to think about my goals for the end of the year and what I’d like to finish. I’m also starting to think toward 2011 too. Mostly, I’d just like to cut down on the amount of WIPs I have going. I think a focus on finishing is in order. But in the meantime, I’m just enjoying spending time with my wicked things.

I am grateful for a smile on Eric’s face.

  5. Wicked is such a cool project! And wow–such lovely thread–you’ll have to tell us how they feel through the fabric!

  7. It’s me, Kim, the lucky recipient of the Wicked necklace, and yes, it is every bit as awesome as in the picture. Michelle and I are truly identical twins (personality wise) separated at birth and 10 years apart, it’s uncanny how we like so many of the same things and have the same off-center, skewed sense of humor. A million thanks to you, Michelle, for one of my favorite birthday prezzies ever!

    Your Garden of Eerie has me falling for it….thanks. (LOL! – I don’t own it yet…and watching yours grow makes me want to own it like yesterday).
    And I’ve been thinking too about next year…I think it will be less spending and more finishing from my own stash too…
