Halloween Swap Part II

Morning Everybody!
I'm writing this post quietly, while hiding in my craft room, there are sleeping children everywhere in my house ♥ I have three nieces and a nephew spending the weekend with me, so fun! Last night we played several rounds of the ABC's of Harry Potter and made Acid Pops and had pizza and giggled a lot. Good times!

Today, I thought I'd share the awesomness which I received from Jacquie in our Halloween swap, look at this gorgeous pillow! I love it so much, the image is great and Jacquie's embroidery is perfect - as always! 

I love the ribbon trim she used at the top & bottom of the pillow, more Halloweenie goodness!

I love the backing fabric, too. It reminds me of Saturday mornings, much like this one (they're all awake now) spent lying on my tummy watching cartoons, specifically scary episodes of Scooby-Doo.

Jacquie added some great details to the pillow, check out this great ruffle!

And these pom-poms! I need ask Jacquie how she did these, I think they're turkey work stitch, but they're very dense I can't see. Whatever they are, I luv 'em!

Here's the rest of my haul, Jax made me some great Halloween envelopes and sent me some terrific Halloween fabric, and some yummy mummies, and Godiva chocolate, oh yeaaaah!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mafiossagrrl!

In a couple of hours, I'm taking my little brood to the pumpkin patch, and later, a Zombie Walk!
What are you guys up to this weekend?
Oxo,
Lisa
