Mexican Kitsch Swap Rd. 2 Goodies

I received my package from trampycouture for the craftster.org Mexican Kitsch Swap and I am in shock! You can visit her blog here: http://craftyenglishteacher.blogspot.com/

She made me a travel blanket with a giant sugar skull embroidered on it, two embroidered towels, an embroidered Virgin de Guadalupe piece, and even the note was on a Dia de los Muertos postcard. Although we only needed to send a large,medium and small, she sent an extra towel.

Her stitches are immaculate. They are neat, tiny, and delicate. It looks like she only used one strand of floss and she used a back stitch, stem stitch and satin stitch on this piece. I travel on the train a lot so this is one of the best things she could have possibly make me.

I believe this pattern is from the Sublime Stitching Dia de los Muertos pack- I love the colors! I haven't found a place for her yet so she's hanging out on the book shelf for now.

These may be from the Sublime Stitching kit too, but I'm not as positive. My future kitchen will be Day of the Dead themed so these are perfect!

I am spray painting frames this weekend and I plan to mat this =)


  1. Actually, I got most of the patterns from istockphoto.com if you are interested. It's a bunch of clip art that is not copyrighted, and I just make patterns with a transfer pen. The only one I didn't get from there was the huge skull. I got that one from urbanthreads.com. Just in case you're interested! So happy you like your package!

  2. Copyright free stuff is great =) I'll have to keep that site in mind.
