Haunting Hallowe'en Swap Goodies...

Hello all,

In the 'Haunting Hallowe'en Swap' I was partnered up with the lovely Melanie over at The Patchwork Robin

the postie came with a HUGE parcel...

which was packed full of beautifully wrapped packages..

and lovely prezzies inside!

such a beautifully stitched black cat hanger..

sweeties galore..

love, love, love this pumpkin!

this fabric one too is just fab...

its just not quite Hallowe'en without a touch of Scooby...

a multitude of ideas swirling on what projects to make with these gorgeous fabrics..

there was also some great bunting which is already adorning my crafty shelves!

Thank you so very much Melanie, it was a pleasure to be partnered with you.


This is what I sent to Melanie...

a handmade Hallowe'en card...

a little stitchy, googly eyes 'Boo' hanging..

a handmade clay 'Halloween 2012' hanger..

I make different versions of these every year as I like the way they glow with a lit candle inside..

some seasonal tealights to pop in..

got to be a sweet treat to be had!

little pumpkins, scented with a little fragrant pumpkin spice oil..

pumpkin lights - I got some of these last year and they look really good wherever you hang them..

window/mirror clings, again I have some of these which come out year after year..

finally a sparkly witches boot (well witches can be glamourous too can't they?)...I made this as I went along without a pattern and I like it so much I hope I can replicate another..

This was a really fun swap, huge thanks again to Melanie for taking part in the swap and for all of the lovely gifts she sent to me.

Hallowe'en always gets those creative juices flowing, so now it's onwards and upwards with Christmas projects! Bring on that glitter!!
