Exchange finish and WIP

If I wasn't reasonably certain my partners don't read my blog, I wouldn't post these, but I am pretty sure they don't, sooooo thought I would share.

This is my finished Sanman board Hallofall exchange piece. It's LK Treats from the Boo Club. On perforated paper, backed with scrapbooking paper. Not too inventive, but I think it's pretty. I've discovered that spray adhesive works REALLY well to attach paper to these. I sent it to my partner with a trick or treat bag and some little goodies. I hope she likes it.






And my WIP for Dalene on 123. It's from Santa and Friends by Prairie Schooler, on 28 count Lugana that I had at Mom's. I had been going back and forth about this, remember, but someone on 123 stitched these for soldiers and I thought they were so cute. I thought I recognized the chart and started looking through the big binders and I had it, so this was the one I chose. I am having fun stitching it for her, and will stitch all of them for myself too. Eventually . . . I hope she likes it!

What a cute Halloween ornie. Thanks for the tip about the spray adhesive.

Stitching on dark fabby...not for me. I can't see the holes! But that's going to be a really pretty piece.

The Santa's Friends looks very dramatic on the dark fabric ... very pretty ... but then I tend to love just about anything from Prairie Schooler. I also likd your idea about backing the perforated paper with a nice scrapbooking paper.

What a cute and easy way to finish an ornament, Rachel--love it! And I've done one of the Santa and Friends ornaments on black, too (the one with Santa pulling the fox on the sled) and it was such fun... Your recipients are lucky stitchers :)

Ohhh, I like this WIP!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
