Exchanges received from me

I stitched this Drawn Thread pattern--Too Tiny Sampler for Amy V. It was for the HoE Mattress Pincushion Exchange. I have been wanting to stitch this pattern for sometime. I may have to stitch it again for myself.
These were the goodies I sent with the exchange. My daughter-in -law painted the cute needle case and I made the project bag, chicken pincushion, and the pillow.
This Shepherd's Bush Halloween bag was stitched for Nancy for the Legacy Halloween Sweet bag Exchange.
I also included some goodies. Candy of course for the Sweet bag and then a scissors, project bag, chicken pincushion, needle case, note pad and monster pen.
I really had fun putting these exchanges together.

Don't forget to post a comment on the October 12 post for my blogoversary drawing.

What fun projects you made for your exchanges! Was it difficult to stitch the Halloween bag? I have a bag like that and thought it would be fun to stitch on it but I do all of my stitching using q-snap frames. I suppose if I found a small design maybe I could do it.

I just love your project bags and I would like to try and make one for myself. I'm not a very good sewer; is there a pattern that you use or is it your own design? Thank you!
