Halloween Treats


I received this adorable exchange from Lisette for the HoE Halloween Exchange - she stitched up a goodie bag for me using a design by Helga Mandl. I love it! I am working on a good way to display it now. She also sent me an October breast cancer awareness bracelet, as well as a bag of Halloween licorice treats - those are half eaten now, and just did not make it into the photo ;-) Thanks Lisette, great exchange!
And, today I received a Halloween surprise from my dear friend Margaret - she stitched up the sweetest little Halloween biscornu - the back has spiders on it :-) She wrote in her card that is an unknown online freebie - I wonder if I have this one stored somewhere, as it is just too cute! She also sent fantastic fabrics, MH beads, and God love her - M&M's! What a treat! Oh, and look at the homemade card too! And... that great ribbon she wrapped it all in for me.... what a dear friend I have, thank you so much!! {{{HUGS}}}

I wouldn't have been able to show the licorice either - it is absolutely my favourite candy/sweet! Great exchanges!

Good morning, I'm a french stitcher and I can see that you have stitched "and a forrest grew" from RosewoodManor. I need you assistance if you agree. Would you please just tell me if you used ONE or TWO strand over two threads ?? The workbook suggest 1 over 2 but this is not very common and .. considering the huge work.. I'm affraid to mistake :-( With ALL MY THANKS
