Exchanges and Finishes

I have been busy stitching and I also received a couple exchanges too. I got a lovely Halloween exchange for Joan. Joan is the owner of Sapphire Stitching and formed a yahoo group which I joined. The exchange came from The Phoenix Stitchers which we both belong to. This was a combination of 2 exchanges, Halloween ornament and Spooky Stash. She send me some Halloween buttons, a piece of hand dyed fabric in orange, glow in the dark floss, black floss, foamies for a Halloween Sal Joan is hosting, and a pattern from her called Pumpkin Stack. She designed it herself. She is very talented. I put a close up picture of the ornament. I just love the beads.
My second package is from my new Secret Sister from the i love cross stitch group. She send me Lizzie Kate Normal kit and the Hocus Pocus Pattern. I cant wait to stitch them. I got a Mirabilia kit of the Queen of Peace. This kit came from my angel Stitcher, Wanda J in Canada. I dont have a picture but I cant wait to start this one too. I have so much projects I wanting to stitch.
I did finish stitching Debra's SFE and its on her way. She should be getting it soon and than I can show it off. I am still waiting to hear from Viv if she got hers. She lives in England and sometimes the packages takes forever to get there. I finished the September Block Swap and Ornament too. The theme for the swap was Fall or bats. I found a cute bat pattern from Helga Mandl. I sitiched it on Sassy Fabbys Spring Green aida. The eyes is stitched with glow in the dark floss so they will glow in the dark. How cool is that! My Sept ornament is another Mill Hill and its called Believe. I love the blues and silver beads make it so wintery. I am also using it for a Blind Oranament Swap in another group. I will get another ornament in exchange. Until next time.
