A bunch of us who meet up at the Nimble Thimble for stitching days have a small FB group and Tracy recently organised a Halloween ornament exchange. We were to stitch an ornament and include a chart and some sweets/chocolate in our parcel too.
My recipient was Michelle, aka Mouse :-)
I found a designer, Good Flora Stitchwort on etsy, (she has some lovely charts, go take a look),
I chose Bubble Bubble and finished it as a little wall hanging.
I found a little pack of Halloween buttons perfect for holding the hanging ribbon
Here's the whole exchange I sent, luckily Michelle didn't already have the chart I included
My package came from Chris, (I don't think Chris has a blog)
A cute little pumpkin ornie. My grandson, Oliver is mad about Halloween things and wanted to claim it for his Halloween tree, lol
Love the chart she included too
This weekend has been quite a busy one, It was my book club meeting on Saturday morning and later I went with Joanne to have high tea at a local garden centre. It was a lovely treat, lovely to just sit and take our time. Today was the annual Scarecrow festival in Belbroughton and I went with the girls again. We started the day with breakfast at another garden centre before going into Belbroughton. The weather was quite dull and dreary today but at least the rain kept off until we were ready to make our way home.
There didn't seem to be as much effort put in by the residents this year, in fact it was quite
disappointing to be honest, the theme was Fables and Fairy Tales, plenty of choice as to what to
make, you would think, but we counted at least 3 Humpty Dumpty's, 3 Tortoise and The Hare,
and about 4 Little Red Riding Hood .
I thought these were the best efforts
This one was brilliant, a lot of work has gone into making these
And this giant Gingerbread Man :-)
I've been flitting between various WIP's this week, nothing finished except for this little pair of shoes
I came across the pattern on line and just had to knit them right away :-)
They worked up really quickly, I knit both of them in a couple of hours
I do need to get a move on and finish some of the things I've got on the go at the moment, because I want to make a start on Bonnie's birth sampler this month so that It can be finished and framed ready for Christmas.
So many lovely things to make, so little time, lol
I hope you all have a lovely crafty time till next week
