Halloween Exchange 2014

I recently participated in the first annual Halloween Exchange organised by Kim of Wisdom with Needle and Thread.  My goodies arrived a couple of weeks ago and I've been dying to share with you what I sent!

My parcel came all the way from Donna in Tennessee, USA.  Please check out Donna's blog here, she's very talented and you won't be disappointed.

This is what was in my parcel...

A gorgeous Pine Mountain Designs ornament finished with pretty ricrac trim and some lovely Halloween fabric which I have already found a use for!  Donna also included three cute Halloween charts which I haven't seen before.

And this beautiful card which she must have made herself...

Thank you Donna, I loved everything you sent and as always with exchanges I've been blown away with your generosity!

I sent my exchange parcel to Melanie over at The Patchwork Robin.  This is what I sent to her...

JBW designs Halloween pinkeep, Lizzie*Kate Halloween Quick-it chart, some Halloween fabric and threads and some chocolate with chilli.  I'm happy to say Melanie liked everything and has already stitched up the LK chart!

This exchange was so much fun and not least because I discovered some great new-to-me blogs.

Thanks Kim for organising this, I look forward to next year's exchange!
