It was a project weekend!

I actually had three days off and I got to sew and glue and cut and make a huge mess!!!! I also made things..fun things and some I can't show you because they are a secret. I have no idea what I was thinking but I signed up for four swaps that all pretty much have the same date. For a while, I make almost nothing and I think my jubilance ran away from me. I am happy to report that I got them done! Oh my happy dancing feet!



My partner and I for Val's zombie swap are done....Sarah is someone I have never met before and it was her first swap. I could tell by the note that came in the package that she was pretty excited about it..Whaddya say she's hooked? These swaps have a way of grabbing you.
So this is what the spooky miss Sarah sent me...














There were also reese's peanut butter cup but I wolfed them down first thing. I had a day that called for serious chocolate.


I love the zombie doll...I love the bright orange especially cause I have a secret thing for orange. That is me being dramatic and mysterious because I know it's not really a secret. A girl can pretend ok?
I already used some of the little monster stickers and I also ate a couple of eyeballs out of the coffin....delicous!


Here is what I sent Sarah....

The zombie bride from a few posts back.


















Some spooky cards! And here it is all together....Zombie bride is in the coffin.she is waiting to make her appearance on Halloween!




















A few posts ago I mentioned I made up a big tablerunner...Victoria from "Bears Mom" actually sent me these and I wanted to show her that I used them. I think the fabrics are flour sack repro's. I love them what ever they are. This first picture isnt the greatest but you can see the pattern.















And this is what I did with it.....This is what the colors really look like and this little bench is in my entry way.....














Happy Fall!
