Halloween Exchange

Before I lost my mojo, I had joined in the Halloween Exchange that Kim was organising.  This is the wonderful package that I received from my exchange partner, Lynda.  She did send me 2 of the marshmallow witches but the first one must have whizzed off on her broomstick as she never made it to the photocall :)

I have never had such lovely tea towels and dish cloths as these, so they will be put to good use. The scented reeds are gorgeous too, pumpkin scented.  The lollies were tasty too!  The best bit though were the 2 lovely stitched pieces which Lynda included though.  They are beautifully stitched and so cute!  Thank you Lynda, it was a lovely package to open.

My package hasn't arrived yet, sadly.  I am ok posting a photo of what I sent though as I am about 99.9% sure that my exchange partner doesn't read my blog.  Below is a photo of what I sent and a close up of what I stitched for my partner. The design was a BlueLadie Designs freebie from the last newsletter.  

Finally, a while back Kathryn had a Tour de France giveaway on her blog which I was lucky enough to win.  She sent me LOADS of bits, it took me AGES to open it all and look through.  Thank you so much Kathryn.  There were loads of cute San Man designs with the buttons to finish them or the little tuck pillow, threads, a project bag and all wrapped in the cute little pink bag you can see.  Well I say little, it was probably A4 size so not little at all.  My absolutely favourite thing though, has to be the frog bell pull end.  It is adorable.  I have even taken a closeup of the frog as he is so cute!  However, this is the ONLY visiting frog I want!  Thank you Kathryn for such a wonderful package :)

Fabulous exchange! I really like your finished piece and all the little extra you have sent too :)
Great win too but I'm not sure what these cute little frogs are for??? Still they really look adorable (if this can be said for frogs :D) xox

Nice exchanges. I wonder where the yummies went? Funny how they disappear so quickly?
I do like those little San Man tucks, I was tempted to make one for myself.

All your gifts where beautiful!!! I could not believe Debbie has died either and first I could not stitch but then I said I'm going to be strong and let her rest in peace. Now Debbie is a big angel watching over us Cross Stitchers!!!
