I will be hitting a couple of you with this... so watch out!
Here are the instructions:
Go to as many friends as you want and tell them they've been "B00-ED." Have them link back to your blog to pick up their Halloween Treat (picture) and tell them to Boo their friends. Put the picture in your side bar so everyone will know that you have already been Boo-ed!
Happy Halloween everyone!
Now why I love my Mailman. He must love me...he brings me the most wonderful things!!! Lookie what I have received in the mail the last couple of days!
First I received my Stitching Angel package! I came all the way from France! Thank you so much Francoise!
I received a sweet little pincushion, needle keep and covered measuring tape! It was so much fun to participate in this swap! I am still waiting to hear when my Angel receives her goodies so that I can post a link to her site!
Next up is this darling little wallet that I won from Tango over at Tango's Trash and Treasure. She was having a giveaway to celebrate her 100th post. She ended up closing the giveaway early and sending out a wallet to everyone who left a comment...how cool is that!!! I love the colors! Thanks again Tango!
And are you ready for the last one???
From the UK I received the most precious little ornament from Su over at Contemplating my Needle and Thread. She was having a week long birthday giveaway and I was lucky enough to win the one that was my absolute favorite! Her work is gorgeous! Thanks again Su!
Hope you all have a great day!

It seems strange to me that all the hero's in the games look so effeminant, but that is the way the designers want them to look. At least my Son gives it a masculine look, more like the character would actually look if he were real.
More costume posting to come soon...

This one had the most gorgeous neon colors, they just don't show very well here:
This one was so sweet. It was made in 1893 and has that old world charm:
More gorgeous colors:
I wish this one came out better, it was my favorite! The butterflies are dimensional:
My Daughter's favorites:
This one was so sweet, I would love to make this one for my Daughter (it actually looks like I MIGHT be able to make it!):
Baby Girl and I had a great time at the quilt show. Everyone was charmed by her good manners and sweet disposition. She even managed to walk out of the vendor area with a free fat quarter and free Mary Englebrite buttons! They (two different vendors) told her that since she was such a good girl, she could have them to start her "stash." It was a wonderful, memory making afternoon!

Elizabeth over at Pigtails and Snails has a gorgeous, sunshiney quilt that she is giving away. It is her own pattern, so the first prize is the quilt and she is also giving away a second and third prize of the quilt pattern. Incredibly generous!
Laurie from My Home For the Holidays is giving away one of her Placemat Pocketbook Purses in celebration of her 100th post! Darling!
Dani at Olde Homestead Peddler is having a giveaway to celebrate starting to blog! She is giving away her own handmade darling candles and linen/room spray sets. There will be two lucky winners!
Farmchick over at Fresh from the Farm is giving away a soy candle, soy tarts and a sunflower stake all handmade by her (well, except for the stake)! Really cute!
Don't miss out on all this giveaway goodness!

I hope my partner will like the color choices I made. It is always so hard to know what someone will like.
Speaking of Angel Swap partners...I have yet to hear from mine. I was remiss on not contacting my partner sooner, so I definately understand. I do hope that mine is well...and out there...

Also free for your perusal is my lame attempt at adding decorative edges to my pictures! When I saved them, I thought they looked better! Oh well.
Here is my purse:
Nothing fancy, but I think the material and the trim really give it a nice personality. It was amazing the difference the braided trim made in the overall appearance of the purse! Next time I make one, I think I will make it just a little smaller and I will use a stiffer interfacing as this one is really quite slouchy. I made the button with a do -it-yourself button thingy (yes, that is a technical term). It was a little fiddly, but I figured it out without too much trouble.
I also finished an order for a cute little bucket tote done in cowboy material that I got from Jane's giveaway (see earlier post). I think it turned out really cute too!
It's kind of hard to tell from the picture, but the brown closure button I found in my Grandma's button jar is just perfect with it! Although made of some type of plastic, it has the look and feel of leather.
Well, enough for today! I have been doing lot's of sewing, so I will have more to share with you soon!

In the box (I don't know how she managed to stuff so much in there!)
Out of the box!
My Daughter has already run off with the cute little bird and the feathers! She also has her eye on quite a few other things that were in the box, but I hid it!! I see quite a few projects that will be enhanced by all the goodness in this box! Thanks again Vallen!

This one looks like Hairdresser Fairy lives here. It reminds me of a bad Beatles hairdo.
