I've been waiting to submit this until October. It's my Halloween ball! I found the perfect orange thread and thought silhouette work would be sufficiently spooky. The moon is the only "real" temari stitching on this one. There are (of course) 13 spokes in the moon. Materials: cotton machine sewing thread (background), cotton pearl #5 (ground), various metallics (moon), Very Velvet (tree), silk pearl #12 (bats). On the reverse side (not shown here; photos didn't turn out) are a couple twisty little houses also done in the velvet thread.
Edit - I submitted this guy to the Halloween contest sponsored by darkfantasy here: [link]
