I just finished my last Halloween swap package 
 for the IG Trick or Treat Mini Swap 
By now I hope my secret partner @chelsaphene
has received it!

Don't ya just luv these goofy Halloween characters!
My partner said she like the "fun" side of Halloween
so this should so it!

 I made the Nested Churn Dash block
by Quilt Jane...
which is my all time favorite mini kwilt to make.
It finishes at 24"

And kwilted with a wavy, wacky design!

I had some fun spiders and webs in my stash for the backing.

It turned out sew cute...I wanted to keep it!

But I didn' I added some fun extras.
Her favortie Halloween movie is
"Hocus Pocus"
and I couldn't believe I found this kitchen towel!
She loves cats...and I had a couple FQs to include.
Some cute hair pin that a friend had made.
I hope she likes it all!

I received this Halloween banner in a swap
And had to hang it!

I know fall is just setting in but my mind is 
on  a Christmas Cookie Exchange Party! 

It has been 5 years since I have hosted a cookie party. 
But the peer pressure was on...   
I have sew many wonderful these
how can I say no!

At the last Cookie Party they all received a
"Cookie Diva" apron-check them out!

 I decided to make myself a new apron 
for this cookie party!
It's just GHASTLIE!!!

I have the Ghastlie Christmas fabric 
in the other colors as well.
Plus ordered 2 more yards of the red!
Sew I'll figure out other fun projects to make!

I am already sewing gifts for those attending.
 Here's a sneak peak!
Some of them follow this blog
so shhhhh...I'm keeping it a secret!

My mind is spinning with ideas for doorprizes
and decorating and trees...lots of theme trees!
That being said...all projects around this party
are from my Christmas Fabric stash.
