Halloween Exchange

Yesterday morning, bright and early mind you, the postman delivered a parcel containing a Halloween exchange. Ellen sent me the most wonderful exchange package for the Hooked On Exchanging Halloween exchange. She stitched the cutest ornament and included some wonderful goodies. The design is by The Prairie Schooler and comes from last years JCS Halloween issue.


Aurelia was most fascinated that Ellen had sent "her" some lovely things, now who's exchange is it I ask. The trick or treat bag and the wooden Halloween ornament are now hanging in her room, but at least I managed to keep the stitched ornament. Thank you Ellen for making this such a fun and wonderful exchange.

I am involved in several other exchanges and Aurelia is already talking about the "things" she will keep for her own room. Talk about bossy!!

Last week I was very fortunate to have a happy dance. Not a stitching happy dance, but I think maybe even better. For the first time since Amelie was born, my ironing baskets are empty. Just before Amelie's party I decided to make one last go at getting it done and after many hours of ironing it's finished, but it all starts again this week. I have promised myself that I won't let it get that way ever again. Let's see how I go!
