Fall/Halloween exchange!

Me and my friend Amanda were the only people who signed up in a Halloween exchange in one of my stitching groups. And since Halloween is not celebrated here in Iceland I asked for something with a Fall/Autumn theme and I got to stitch a Halloween themed item for her. I love Halloween patterns and try to find ever excuse there is to stitch them 🙂

Today I got my package from Amanda and it is gorgeous!

Fall exchange from Amanda
She stitched me this beautiful strawberry emery that is just perfect! The stitching and finishing are just amazing! But she didn’t stop there. She also sent me some colored floss rings (awesome!) and a beautiful beaded scissor fob that she made for me! Here is another shot of just the emery. It has tons of beads on it!
Fall exchange from Amanda
Thank you Amanda! I love my goodies!

And here is a picture of what I stitched for Amanda. I made her a pinkeep and a floss ring tag. Sorry about the picture, it is a little blurry. I didn’t download the images until I had already mailed the exchange only to find that the images were not so great :-/

Halloween Exchange for Amanda

The pattern for the pinkeep is a freebie from Cyberstitchers called ‘Halloween’s a sudden boo’ and is designed by Barbara Ana. As you can see I only used a very small portion of the pattern for the pinkeep. I know Amanda collects Halloween houses so I thought this would be perfect for her. The windows and moon and stars are stitched with DMC glow in the dark thread and it is so cool!
The ghost on the floss ring tag is from Halloween Spots by The Trilogy. I also stitched the word ‘Boo’ on the back.

Thanks Amanda for a great exchange!
