Trick or Treat Halloween Exchange


This year, I have joined the Trick or Treat Exchange
organized by Parsley at Seasons of My Mind

I had to send my little bits & pieces to Nikki at Furry Bottoms
I've posted everything one week ago, so I'm hoping she has now received them ☺
 

So, what have I prepared for Nikki?

Apart from the usual ribbons, fabric, choccie & chart from her wish list
I have worked on Owliver & Punky!!

This is a sweet little design available in the fabulous JCS Halloween Special 2013
Chart was designed by Diane Arthurs of Imaginating Inc

I have stitched it on 14 count white aida using recommanded DMC threads
and finished it as a little cushion using candy corn fabric, green ribbon & a bat button

Now, l'm so looking forward to receiving my little parcel!!!
I'm keeping an eye on my letter box everyday :D

Happy Stitching!
Ingrid


Cette année j'ai decide de joindre l'échange Halloween Trick or Treat,
organisé par Parsley à Seasons of My Mind

Ma partenaire était Nikki à Furry Bottoms
Je lui ai envoyé son petit paquet la semaine dernière ☺

Mis à part les rubans, tissue, chocolat & une grille qu'elle avait sur sa liste de voeux
j'ai aussi fais un petit coussin pour Nikki

Voici Owliver & Punky de chez Imaginating Inc.
La grille est disponible dans le magazine Spécial Halloween JCS

Travaillé sur toile blanche aida 14 fils avec les brins DMC listés,
je l'ai terminé en petit coussin avec ruban & bouton chauve-souris!
Trop chouette!

Maintenant j'attends avec impatience pour mon petit paquet
Je surveille ma boite aux lettres tous les jours :D

A tout à l'heure...
