My exchange partner was Carol Amich (Battatter) and I know she loves anything Halloween. Well, this isn't quite Halloween, but something along those lines and I thought she would get a kick out of it. I tatted Frankenstein and his Bride. LOL!! How far out is that one.....way out there I guess. I used Jane Eborall's Bridegroom pattern for Frankenstein and her Bride pattern and altered them a bit and this is what I came up with.
Then I used scrapbook paper and drew a background that looked like a brick wall, added a tatted bat and drew a spider web and put glitter on the web and added a tatted spider. Pretty creepy looking, huh??
Here is the rest of what I sent Carol. Some Halloween HDT by Heather and also one of her shuttles, thread, beads, dragonfly pin,
tatted snowflake, Halloween confeti, and the heart shaped material, is a rice heating pad. I got the pattern from Hope Green. You fill the bag with rice and heat it in the microwave and put on your neck or shoulder or where ever you need heat. It stays warm for a long time and the shape allows it to drape so nicely around you neck. I love mine and use it all the time. In fact, if it is really cold out and my bed is cold, I'll warm the heart rice pad up and put it at my feet and I get warm real quick. The polar bear stocking is from Avon and of course there is the required chocolate.
I so enjoy the Secret Santa Exchange. I think it is more fun putting together the package for someone than actually receiving a package. LOL!!
Happy Tatting everyone!
