Hello, My Pretties!

My private exchange with Angela this year was for Halloween.
I had a vision of what I wanted to do so I ordered the chart specifically for it, and I'm happy to say that it all came together just right in the end.
Here is what I stitched for Angela along with all the goodies I sent as extras.

Plum Street Samplers - My Pretties
Stitched on 32ct cream evenweave using DMC and a Bat charm 
Made into a wall hanging

I cant believe I found a Lizzie Kate chart that Angela didn't already have.

And here is what Angela sent me.

Lizzie Kate - Halloween Sampler
Stitched using 28ct Bone Jobelan and DMC
Finished as a hanging pillow

Another fun exchange we had this year.
I have another private exchange making its way over to Conny in The Netherlands and I have just finished up my Seasonal Exchange piece.  Now I have one more exchange to complete before the end of the year and then its on to making ornie's, along with working on WIPS inbetween.
Until next time, happy stitching

Looks like a perfect exchange with Angela--that witch pattern is one of my favorites. She is such a skinny old hag!

Glad you were able to find an LK pattern that Angela didn't own--unbelievable!
