Pictures as promised!!!

Obviously I can't show off any of the exchanges I've just finished until after Christmas but I can finally show off my October ones!
Starting with the Autumn theme Biscornu exchange! This exchange probably took the longest for me to stitch, I missed the posting deadline by 2 weeks and this was also my biggest biscornu to date as it was stitched on 14ct aida.

I stitched the Thanksgiving/Harvest design by Barbara Ana Designs~downloaded from creativepoppy.com

And I received this Autumn Design also by Barbara Ana designs!!-I know because I downloaded the chart at the same time as the Thanksgiving one as I couldn't decide which one I wanted to stitch!!

Check out the cute card that came with it!! :)

Next up was the Halloween Card Exchange

I sent this bubbling cauldron...
poem inside reads:
"When witches go riding by and black cats are seen,
 the moon laughs and whispers 'Tis Halloween!"

And I received this spooky black cat-I love the little button!
It was stitched by the same person who stitched my autumn biscornu!!

Lastly is the exchange that I actually set up and ran, the trick or treat halloween exchange (a halloween themed secret santa style exchange)
I sent out these spooky treats
Chocolates, Sour gummi bats, Halloween Candy's, halloween coloured threads in a trick or treat sack

& I received.....well nothing yet actually!! I've been informed that it has been posted out so hopefully it will arrive soon!!

That's all I have to show for now, until next time
Happy Stitching!!
