Fall into Autumn Exchange revealed

I participated in the Stitched with Love Exchange hosted by Lainey.  I love deciding what to stitch and what else to include.   This was an autumn/halloween themed exchange and I geared mine towards autumn as you can see.  It seemed like all of the fall decorations were about crows this year so I went with it including my stitched piece.  I hope Pirjo likes her goodies.  The top photo is what I sent to her.  Below is a picture of what Colleen sent me.  It was packed beautifully, everything was individually wrapped etc. . . Problem, my little man wanted to help and busted everything open before I snapped a pic.  The stitched piece is gorgeous.  The pics don't do it justitce.  there are specialty stitched leaves, and wooden buttons to embellish this lovely little hanging pillow.  It is darling.  She also spoiled me with a chart, scissors, ribbon, fabric, buttons, and thread.  She also sent some candy but that got eaten up right away.  I think little man thought it was his reward for helping me open my package:)Thanks Colleen for a lovely surprise!  You outdid yourself and I love it all!!


I am headed out the door to help with a school Halloween Party.  Let the madness and sugar high begin.  HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!
