Exchange with Becky

The Halloween exchange I stitched for Becky has arrived! I decided to make a cube finish as I've never done one, it turned out all right. That bow I made rocks! Also my first. (I'm now trying to think of more things that need bows...) I think I'd rather have done a half-width cube but it looks okay. Please visit Becky's blog for nicer photos...and I forgot to photo the back of the cube! I really enjoyed stitching for Becky.
