Halloween exchange, PIF received, and a blog award!

Halloween exchange from Wendy.

I have received my halloween exchange from Wendy in the Hooked on Exchanges Too Group blog and the Hooked on Exchanging blog here.  Wendy made me a lovely pillow and sent some fabric and a Little House Needlework pattern, thankyou Wendy, I love it all!
I have posted my halloween exchange last Thursday and it should arrive sometime this week.

Pay it forward for Akila
Here is the pay it forward that I sent Akila, I made a pinkeep and decorated it with silver butterflies.
Akila has let me know that she likes the gift.
I am currently stitching this ornament for the Christmas Challenge blog, I am making four ornaments in one!
It is stitched 2 over 1, however I think it is a bit tight and I should have used one thread instead of two, but it looks quite cute.
I finished stitching this cross stitch design for a pillow I am making, but I forgot to post a picture. The cross stitch design is a freebie and can be found here.
Stitching news 
I am currently stitching my Heaven and Earth Design - Gothic Rose,  it did get relegated to the bottom of my stitching stash as I was busy stitching exchanges and gifts, but now I have some spare time to catch up a little bit, hopefully I will post a picture soon. Here is the start of the Gothic Rose design.
I am planning to stitch a random act of kindness for a blogging friend  but I don't need to send that until the end of November, I have planned what I am going to stitch  and I am really looking forward to sending it.
My halloween stitching is in progress but I can't say what I have stitched as one of them is an exchange and the other is a surprise.

I was having a tidy up amongst my crafting stash, I found lots of patterns that I forgot I had, I really must not buy any more patterns until I have stitched them all, but of course you know we stitchers find that impossible to do, don't we!
I am planning to start one of my Mirabillia patterns sometime soon, as  I love having a couple of large projects on the go, I have a choice between : 
Crystal christmas
Angel Proclamation
Titania, Queen of the Fairies.

Happy stitching everyone!
