Fall Gift Exchange - Gift Received!

Hi again all,
Do you remember the Fall Gift Exchange I took part in a while back?


My gift exchange partner was from New York and the shipping was a little delayed but in the end it arrived all safe and sound on my doorstep :) And just before Halloween also! Talk about perfect timing!

Check out what I received:

I received a quilted checkbook cover, a photo frame, very cute cupcake socks (she must have read my blog for that one LOL), a cupcake tin, orange thread, black leather string, fabrics in Halloween colours and orange bias tape (perfect to make a Halloween project), a luggage tag, and scrapbooking paper. Isnt it great? I've never tried scrapbooking so that will definitely be very cool, and I will use the fabrics as soon as the Halloween stress has died down a bit (now comes to time for taken the decoration down again).

As this gift exchange was about sending the other person what you feel Fall is about, I sent her this:


I made her the Stitch London Bag, a strawberry cheesecake cupcake with swirl cream, a pumpkin hairclip, a needlebook, hot chocolate for those cold autumn evenings, a book on Halloween ideas and one on general holiday gifts, a mailbox keyring, a gingerbread man painting thingy for in the window, and the little box contains homemade cookies :)

Surprised it is very Halloween based? I was told she liked it so thats a good thing hihi :)


Now Christmas crafting must begin soon...
