Halloween comes early to our house.

Hello all, I just had to post to share the exchange Tina and I did for Halloween,we were actually on time with the first of October. I like to have a  Halloween month. So I am going to show you the lovely exchange Tina did for me.
All these lovely things arrived in the  post ,whoo hoo. 
Isn't that fun  and  so unusual , Tina  said  the witch  was stitched on a Silkweaver  fabric. It is now  hanging in the kitchen . Wonder what the 9 year old  grandson will  say to that. 
This was only the tip  of the witches hat ,here is the rest on my little table.
I think the grandchildren  will be over to  carve pumpkins don't you. The notebook is  a lovely touchy feely one with etched designs on .The Room  on the broom witch is sitting  next  to the cauldron and this book I could  not resist for my Halloween Kitchen.
I sent a copy to Tina in her exchange parcel , wonder what she thought of that lol.
Balloons that will be snaffled  by grandchildren or maybe trick or treaters. Then there was this.
Inside this dear little box was eeeew a black spider. Not real  of course. Last but not  least a little  something for me  to stitch before next spring.


This looks so sweet. Thankyou so much Tina ,heres to next year. 
Now as Tina has not got a blog I will post what I stitched for her,  she was very pleased with it ,as was I , in fact I almost kept it as it was stitched before the one I did for  June . So here is Tinas Halloween needlebook. 

The inside as you open it.
I fell in love with the witchy fabric . The scissor fob was from a Prairie Schooler design.Moving  on.
As this was a needlecase , I altered the wording to read Why yes I can drive a stitch, and when you open it this is the inside.
2 pages of  needles size 26 and 28,I find they are the ones I use most often. Then a  page of pins.
The next compartment holds a notebook  and a little Lizzie Kate chart, on the pocket I put our names.
This folds back over the needlecase and is embroidered  with this.
I loved the little purple witch from Just Nan. So there you have it. I did not  take a pic of the chocolate spider or the one in his web and you have seen the Kitchen Witch book , so didn't we do well. If you would like a needlebook  , leave me a comment and what your theme  would be and I will sometime  do a giveaway if anyone is interested. 
Staying on  the Halloween Theme last time (not so very long ago) I showed you this. 

 It is now a pumpkin. It may be the only one as it was so thick to knit ,we  will see.

Also now  finished is  this row of sheepies.

So there you have it for this time, I will be back with goodies I have been told are on their way. Keep well and thankyou for the comments last time, they may have been few but they mean a lot  to this old person lol.Don't forget to  comment on the needlebook  theme.
See you next time 
Hugs
