Yes it is that time of year again ,and Halloween is almost upon us.Tina my friend who I have been doing a Halloween exchange for many years with now has been busy with her needle and thread. She stitched me this .
I do not know who the design is by but it is now sitting in the lounge.She also sent me these wonderful goodies , she spoilt me, so thankyou so much my friend. Also sheepie bits.
I will share mine to her later.I stitch LizzieKate on Mondays with Sally another of my stitchy friends of many years, I am so lucky with all that I am in touch with. Anyway back to LK, I saw this and thought of my grandaughter Caitlin who really this fits to a T. Finished last week,I gave it to her when she brought her new boyfriend round to meet us ,must be serious as she has not done that before. They are coming for a meal this week.They have chosen what they want me to cook too.This is what I did for her.
Yes I did fill it with chocolate ,although I expect it was empty soon after. The back is this.
Now I will show you what I stitched for Tina. Halloween exchange 2017 ,
I have not finished anything else but I am working on several bits. I have put Mondays onto the exchange I do with Sally at Christmas , it is a bit bigger than an ornament so it will take me longer. I do not stitch as quick as I used to . Arthur has attacked the hands , age does not come alone.
I will not be able to show you that one for a while. I have picked up boughs of Holly again!!! This is Wednesdays in the parlour , I can show you here as I cannot get photobucket to let me share it with Needlecraft Haven.
The garden is not at its best now as winter is around the corner but I did take a couple of photos for you to see,
So I now have family news to share. My grandaughter Ella passed her driving test first time on Saturday last . Now G &S will not know where she is. Then this last weekend our eldest Grandson Jack and Kate his fiancee moved into their first home together.I have not seen it yet but have been invited for the grand tour on Saturday. Such a special time for them although the wedding date has been set for 2020 , so I have time to save for a new hat lol.
I think that is about it for this time ,the next post will probably to a photo scraphunt which is due in a couple of weeks. Get thinking head on for that.I will leave you with a witch I have on my Patio door courtesy of Tina. Off now to practise the cackle. lol.
Thanks for reading my rambling and even taking time for a comment. They mean a lot to this elderly woman.
Much love and hugs
