This months ATC letter was B and I made this for Marilyn @ The Tarnished Rose
B for Balloon!
Marilyn sent me B for Bird
plus all these wonderful extra goodies
Thank-you Marilyn for being a terrific swap partner! I'll get hours of fun creating with these goodies!
Now to spooky matters, Tee @ The Altered Paper also hosted an Denim Pocket Halloween Swap and I was lucky to have Tee's mum Frannie (No Blog Yet) as my partner, I sent Frannie all of these goodies
My altered pocket filled to the brim with ribbons, stickers, buttons, fabric, skeleton plus..
an altered tag...
and a handmade black cat (these are so quick to whip up!)
Frannie did the most amazing job altering a pocket for me, I love all the halloween diecuts
and inside was filled with awesome goodies
plus a vial of walnut crystals, perfect for staining ribbons, lace and just about everything!
and a spooky skeleton!
Thank-you Frannie, I feel very lucky to have you for my partner in this swap!
No stitching has been occurring around here lately as Uni and work have been swamping me. I've got 4 assignments left to do and only one two-day workshop to attend and then Uni will be over. I drove home Saturday night from the last two-day workshop and it was snowing at Spring Hill, it was almost a blizzard and in my little car it was a bit scary, so I took it slowly and even pulled over a couple of times. The flakes were nearly 2" in diameter, the biggest I've ever seen.
So to all my stitching friends I will be back stitching by Christmas and hopefully there'll be some of my own designs being released in the new year.
