A bit of stitching has been happening, Halloween Ornament Exchange

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

Lovely post this week. The exchange looks like it was a lot of fun. Your buttons on the hanging are perfect.


Hope you have a happy October!

Barb said...

What a terrific exchange. I do love the stitched piece you made. The buttons are just perfect!

butterfly said...

Wonderful exchange's by both .
Love the little blue booties.
Ha love the gingerman.
Have a good week .

Jo said...

Both lovely parcels for your ornament exchange. Those little spider web buttons finish the wall hanging off perfectly, it's the little details which really add to a creation. I love visiting scarecrow festivals, there's quite a few around now but the one at Kettlewell is brilliant because so many of the residents join in, such a great day out. I like that gingerbread man, very clever. The little shoes are so cute. I'm still in the throes of Christmas knitting, I think lots of crafters are turning their thoughts to gifts at this time of year. I'm just glad that I started early.

Carolien said...

Hi Maggie,

You made a great ornament. Love the fingers of that witch, giggle ...
The straw 'statues' are wonderful, such fun!
And oh those knitted cuties, love them.

Have a great week!

Sally said...

Both exchanges are brilliant!

The scarecrow festival looks great fun.

What a lovely exchange, I loved your Halloween buttons. Fairytales and fables is such a good idea for a theme, I loved the gingerbread man. Cute little shoes, I know what you mean about so much to do and so little time xx

I love the Scarecrow festival, such cool ideas. And what a nice Halloween exchange, Halloween ornies are my favorites.

The Tortoise and the Hare and the Gingerbread Man at the Scarecrow festival were really cool! I loved the pieces in your exchange! So much fun!

Hiya! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able
to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Many thanks!

In addition, the cost of satellite internet sergice has
been coming down so iit will fiit perfectly into the budget of an outdoor festival.

It seems every mobile operator is playing a waiting game.

In a recent study, 72% of those companies which responded ssid

With the introduction of broadband, you no longer have to sspend
many hours for buying commodities or booking tickets.
Not all comparison tools are comprehensive, and as a result, not
all comparison tools are impartial. Getting online
will give a btide a good idea of what she wants
and then she can take printed out pictures with her to a store and see if they hazve a similar dress.

The inernet has allowed for doctors and patients to communicate with each other without having tto be in the same room with each other.

One industry that really helps to keep America going iss the
trucking industry. Like Verizon, Sprint does not provide nationwide coverage of Wi - Max; instead,
they offer 3G mobile broadband services foor cities
lacking Wi - Max access. Often, in the middle of nowhere, it ccan be difficult to
get reliable Wi - Fi service, so for adventurers it is beter to tuurn to a mobile phone which can get the internwt off
of a satellite or hve a tablet with the same capabilities.

Using common copper telephone lines means hat Internet
package prices can be kept to a minimum, because there is no need
to build orr create any neew ijfrastructure
and, instead, simply upgrade or improve on existing network capabilities.
Each and egery household is different, in tedrms of children and data usages, therefore different needs and demands exist.

As a result, you are much more likely to have impulse
buys onlune than iin a brick and mortar store. The installation proocess for DSL will vary
depending on the type of connection. Many people now usse
the internet to ddo such things as pay thheir bills, manage their bank accounts and
even bring work home.

Demand for your event Wi - Fi services wll rise and fall
so technical staff shoulod mmanage this. As Humans we
have a regular need to keep in touch with others for a variety of reasons.
When it comes to satellite intternet it can tend to work at slightly higher speeds than dial up but
stil tends to come with many limitations.
