Motif Five: Happy Halloween!


This is my skeleton featuring pearl tatting for the spine. The jaws need a little work, and next time, I think I will join the arms a little higher on the neck and add a set of ribs. But over all, I'm pleased with it and I don't think I'll have time to do it again before Halloween. Blocking will help -- I just time to iron it a little tonight.

This was the rough draft. Not bad, but I decided the chains outlining the ribs were too busy, so that the pearl tatting effect was getting lost.

  2. Why didn't the skeleton go to the dance alone?
    Cause he didn't have no body to go with.

    Very creative job, Ms. Ess!
