Leah's Halloween Swap Goodies

I thought it was about time I got my act together and blogged about the lovely goodies I received in the Halloween Swap.

The first of my 2 swap packages was from SqueezyCheese, and it was a beautiful necklace.

It's made from greeny/light jade beads that have a crackly pattern to them, interspirced with clear crystal beads.
The clasp is just adorable being a leaf design.
It came all wrapped up in an orange box.

My second package was from my mystery swap partner - and was full of goodies.

I got 2 FQ of fabric, plus 2 squares of felt - all halloween colours - I especially love the pumpkins!

Some spooky sweeties and a little cup with ghosties on - both of which my DD loved!!

And the piece-de-resistance - drum roll please - a pincushion.

The top of which has been cross-stitched with halloween motifs - a pumpkin, a bat, a ghost and my name initial dripping blood!

Thank you both ladies. Everything was lovely xxx

Chachargabor's goodies!

Fudge is absolutely scrummy, smells intoxicating and so moreish. DD in pictures, minimally dressed as usual [hmm] but decent enough, has had a good munch and carries the little bag around everywhere with her. Made up with this craft swap :)

Thell's swap goodies!

I am going to add the pictures you send me with your 'received' post as anything I write won't be as good as the excited first post after it turns up, so without further waffle, here's are Thell's gorgeous gifts!

Received my gifts this morning - thank you SO much!
I received a beautiful scarf and essential oil candle-melt, wrapped in very funky skull wrapping paper, both completely fab!

phantom knitter - you needn't have worried about colours as I love stripes too (I'm wearing a grey and black stripy top and hat today!), but thank you so very much for choosing the wool specially x x x
