Halloween is finally over

I ended up sending two packages to Canada & two to Australia. The first of each made good time. But the second two… those took their sweet time.

Day 12

This was probably one of the most simple of them all. Just a little embroidered pin keep. Easy peasy, but I do admit to loving the crap out of that bat pin. The crystal on it is a deep blood red; trust me it looks great in person.

And the surprise that went into the Halloween Grande finale with all the other stuff was…

Can’t remember the name. lol But it was from this year’s JCS Halloween issue (Just Nan) and a whole bunch of other people people stitched it too, that’s where I ripped off the fob idea from.

The scissors are light weight Ginghers, but I bought them to go with it becaue they were black. I did a black beaded edge finish for the edge. Made the cording to match. And the fabric is a leftover from my Silkweaver Solo that I stitched Mira’s Halloween Fairy on last year. I think the pictures it’s reading very blue, but it’s more purple than blue, but both colors are mottled together. Oh and I filled it with walnut shells which IMHO are perfect for fobs because they give just enough weight.

One last thank you to everyone who stopped by to enter & comment on the 13 Days Giveaway. And a special thank you to all the countries’ mail systems that didn’t lose a single package!

    It’s great that all of your packages arrived safe & sound. You just never know when you put something in the mail.

    I love the froggie fob! It’s my belief that having a frog around wards off stitching frogs…

    You’re an amazing woman of stitchy accomplishment and you have incredibly good luck. However you do that … good goin’. I’m not much for Halloween (sorry to be such a dud in ultra-Halloweenland), but I love your fabulous prizes.

    Mmmmm … buttermilk pie. Haven’t had one of those in a bazillion years.

  4. OK, I’ll be totally ripping off that fob idea. Would look great with my beloved black teflon Dovos. Glad all the packages finally made their destinations – lucky peps!
