Tiny Halloween Patterns

I really like the little bat. I'm thinking he'll show up a few more times on this blog!

Are you pondering what I'm pondering?

I based the pattern for Brain off of the large sprite found here. It's been so long since I started working on this pattern that I honestly do not remember if I based the font off of one I found or just decided to wing it. All I do know is that I'm so excited to have it done even if I do keep looking at what else I could change to make it better.

Variegated Floss

A few weeks ago I found some variegated floss on clearance at my local craft store. I was so excited to try it out that I quickly came up with a simple pattern and went to stitching. Unfortunately, I wasn't as careful as I should have been when placing my stitches so what I ended up with is a bad camouflage effect. I guess next time I try to stitch with variegated floss, I'll google tips for doing so first.

My boyfriend says this often so I made him a magnet. The letters are based off of the alphabet found here. It's a very simple pattern, but I wanted to post something while I'm working on a bigger project.

Gold = DMC 783
The backstitch alphabet I used can be found here.

Inspired by Art Deco design and needing a good border, I came up with this after not being satisfied with anything else I could find for free online. I've modified the pattern some from the version I stitched up so it should fit a little better in a standard 5x7 frame when stitched on 16 ct aida.
