SBEBB Hallowe'en Exchange


Terry (Sylvyrdragonstitcher) received my Hallowe'en exchange. I stitched a design from Prairie Schooler (of course, when in doubt I always fall back on Prairie Schooler) from one of their newest books, #140 Pumpkin Patch. I had in my mind from the beginning to make a sweet bag, so once the I was finished the stitching, I dove into my fabric stash and found some matching Hallowe'en prints to use. I lined the bag with black fabric and found a package of my favourite chocolates to put inside - Lindor chocolate pumpkins!


I have to add a link to my sidebar for the newest blog addition: The Snowbirds' SAL. Dani and Kathy created this blog for all the stitchers who wanted to starting the stitch-alongs on November 1st for Long Dog's Paradigm Lost (which I am starting) and Ink Circle's Cirque-des-Cercles. New members are very welcome.....although the Paradigm Lost members are becoming quite 'lost' - we are fast becoming outnumbered by the Circled group! So we need some help!!! Please join us for the fun!!!

I really love the treat bag - it's wonderful :) Isn't Hallowe'en great??!!

I started Paradigm Lost last March (!) and I'm still less than a third through it I think - I think a SAL on it would probably stress me out, as I'm currently planning on finishing it in 2009 LOL!
