About Me

I love anything creative...I am a busy mom of three (+4 dogs, 1 bird, 1 bunny, and 1 sweet husband) who sometimes wishes I had more time/energy/talent to devote to just being creative!

I participated again in the HOE Halloween exchange. This is what I received from Amy of Cross Stitch and Cupcakes. It is a Blue Ribbons Designs peice out of the JCS Halloween issue, and I love it! She made it into a treat bag and it came filled with candy YUM! She also made the two pillowcases you see underneath it in the photo, which are super cute Halloween colors. I am in awe of her sewing/finishing skills!

And this is the piece I sent out to Rachel of The Wandering Bunny. She posted a photo of it amongst her Halloween display on the HOE blog, and she has the cutest Halloween tree with all of these knitted/crocheted? ornaments. I need to get my act together and start digging out all of our Halloween decorations before October passes me by. The ornament is a Prairie Schooler design, I stitched just the top of it actually cause I loved the trio of witches with that poor cat hanging off the broom. I also hand-dyed the linen, and still have a scrap of it which I will probably use to stitch this again for myself.

I love the way you adapted that PS design!!

Both pieces are great.
You chose a lovely Prairie Schooler design for your little pillow, and the blue fabric you stitched it on is so perfect for it. Great exchange.

Thank you for the gift! I absolutely love it. I've been showing a picture of it to my friends. Everyone loves the design and your beautiful dyed fabric!

Beautiful gifts both sent and received. I love to see these exchanges go so well!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes, I made some of the ornaments on my tree. They are crocheted. A few of the ornaments were made by my best friend, Amanda. She got me into crochet.

You should try crochet again. YouTube is great for learning new crafts. A lot of what I know is from watching tutorials.
