Halloween Goodies!

I received two more items this week and I wanted to share them with you. I think it is wonderful that these girls gave their time and a creation to support their PAFA Group and I hope you will visit their blogs and see their wonderful creations.

I love bowl fillers and when I saw Valerie's acorns, I knew I had to have them. They are perfect for my trencher on my dining table. Visit her at Yorkie's Primitives to see some wonderful primitive creations that she also sells in her etsy shop.


Carol of Firecracker Kid Primitives had a prize for the giveaway, as well. I have been the lucky winner of her rolling pin shelf and I love it, so I knew I had to have her newest item, a cat eared herb rack. It is so much nicer in person and I need to make some things to hang from it. The kitties on it now, are from my friend Joanne, she knows I love prim kitties. But my kitties love dangly things, so they will go back on the peg rack which is out of the real kitties reach.


I also went through my box of UFO's and found this punch needle, that I had forgotten about. I decided to put some double tape on the back of the folded over weavers cloth, not on the punched area. I learned the hard way to never do that;) Now I have a new piece to enjoy for now and then it can come down and  later I can make it into a permanent piece for next  year. The wonderful cross stitch piece, was made by my friend Sharon. I am truly blessed and hope that I can pay it forward later this year.

Love your newest PAFA goodies!! Those would have been in my choices as well...Love 'em both! And too weird - I just today finished up the same punch piece from Brenda and mounted it on a hornbook!! I love that design! But, I'm curious - what's lesson, exactly, did you learn about not putting double stick tape on the punched area? (I don't use tape - I glued my piece to the hornbook) - or are you talking about if you want to remove it at some point as I'm sure the tape would pull the loops out??? And that cross stitched piece is ADORABLE!!!! Haven't seen that one before! Ahhh - so many dances, so little time! Hope you're enjoying your weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Super cute October and Halloween goodies! Love the idea for the temp finish on the needlepunch, and the warning about avoiding the punched back section.

Are you enjoying cooler weather?

Great fall decorations, Debbie. Love the acorns. The punched piece is beautiful too.

Hi, Debbie, so many wonderful things. The cross stitch pillow from your friend is very adorable and I like how you mounted the punch piece. Firecracker Kids makes the best wooden pieces. It was very generous indeed for the
gals at PAFA to give of their time and efforts.
Warm Regards,
Susan

Wow! The PAFA giveaway is looking more and more awesome each day! Love the bowl fillers and the rack! At first glance I thought the top reminded me of a pumpkin! I'm very happy you are enjoying the kitty cross stitch! I'm halfway though another one for me! lol! I might have to find the punchneedle pattern you have displayed too... Brenda's designs can keep me busy for years!!! :-)
