Fall exchange revealed

Hello everyone,
Last month was the Fall into Halloween exchange over at Stitched with Love exchanges. You can see the whole gallery here.

Now that the exchange is closed, I found out that my wonderful package came from Dawn. I must say I was quite worried as one end of the box had  been crushed by the time it arrived. With quite a bit of anxiety, I opened the parcel to find this lovely exchange. Dawn had wrapped everything so beautifully, that nothing was damaged.

 I requested either fall or Halloween for this exchange. 

 This Homespun Elegance piece ABC Cat she stitched for me fits both beautifully.

Such lovely ribbons for the no-sew finish.

Don't you just love the pretty fall fabric she used for my orts?

My partner was Nancy (Glory Bee), and she requested a fall themed package. I went stash diving and finally settled on the biscornu from the fall collection of Anita's Little Stitches.

32ct Antique Ivory
DMC & DMC Color Variations  Chilean Sunset
Stitch Count 62 x 62, 2 over 2

When I started to assemble this, I realized that somehow I managed to stitch the front twice. LOL! Luckily, I realized it in time and stitched the bottom panel. I stuffed it with poly fill and added a few tablespoons of pumpkin spice  scented pellets. Then I added a covered button and a few bicone crystal pins.

Here is the package that I sent. I do hope that she liked it.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. What a wonderful exchange! Both packages are wonderful. The stitched pieces are gorgeous!

  2. What a great exchange! I love the stitched pieces.

  3. You always send such fabulous exchages Lisa! I love the ceramic pumpkin that Dawn sent you.
