Halloween Exchange

Now that my partner has received her package for the Halloween Exchange, I can share what I stitched for her, and what I got from my partner. I stitched "Hatz Boo-tique" by Brightneedle and I did it over one. Isn't she cute? Look at her tiny high heels, and the attitude in the set of her head. I'm making another one for myself, but NOT over one. I'll use mine as a scissor fob.

And wasn' t my package wonderful? From Laura, she stitched me a really cute cube--I've never made one of these, doesn't it look great? She also sent me a project envelope, a pair of spooky socks, a flicker candle (runs on a battery) three skeins of Crescent colors, and a really cute package of Kleenex (which my youngest granddaughter nabbed for herself.) Sorry, the flicker candle is not in the picture, its on my mantle flickering in a spooky candle holder.
I emailed Laura to ask her who the designer was for my lovely cube, as I'd had someone ask. Its Prairie Schooler, and the design name is Pumpkin Patch.

Not much else to report right now, no finishes to show. I'm in the early stages of stitching Indigo Rose's Remember Me. Also trying to decide what to take on vacation. Hubby and I have never been on a vacation in the 17 years we've been married. We are going to Branson, MO, with my parents, to see a few shows, and relax--well, relax as much as possible, going with my Mom to the outlet stores. I might even try to find the stitching store there, Aux Arcs? I have heard from friends that the prices there are a bit high.

Until next time, thanks for reading and many thanks for all of your lovely and insightful comments.
