Halloween in July
Mark Myers Scary Ghost in size 80 thread. (Correction: It is Mettler Machine Quilting Thread, about a size 100.) It's finished size is 4.5 cm by 4.5 cm. I used split rings to climb from row 1 to row 2. It was just the break I needed to get the clogs in my brain turning again. I started flipping through my design notebook and spotted an element in one of my doily designs that suddenly resembled a ghost. The little ghost by Scary Ghost's side is a prototype of one of the ideas that resulted. Don't look too closely because he's tied together in places and there are spots where I cut things out and kept going--very much a rough work--but you can see where I'm headed anyway.
