New cross stitch, and a night out

I have been keeping my fingers busy with lots of cross stitching. It's a great tool for a lonely spinster such as myself ;-)

I made this for a coworkers birthday. Pattern available on Etsy from Ampyfied

This pattern took me a very long time to finish, the end result is fantastic. The pattern calls for yellow bats, but I made them grey instead. Pattern available on Etsy from DeepKalio

Games of Thrones cross stitch! I love how it looks like a tapestry. I haven't washed or ironed this yet, so it's a bit wrinkled. Available on Etsy from Ad Leones

WOW! I am amazed at the cross stitch work. The Frankenstein's monster is awesome.

Your makeup did turn out great! And I'm loving the play lists.

That Frankenstein picture is amazing! I think it was a good choice to change the bats from yellow to grey. Your makeup looks fantastic - I've realized after the Witches Night Out function that I've lost any makeup skills I once had, it having been so long since I've applied any. lol
