Happy Halloween!!!! .... and my spoils from the show :o)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!!!!
We don't tend to go 'all out' here in Oz celebrating Halloween but I'm sure to get some cute as a button trick or treaters at the door tonight ... and I'm going to be ready!!! I love to see the little darlings all dressed up in their scary outfits ... sooooo cute!!! :o)

Well it's been a week since the Craft and Quilt Show and I realised I haven't shown you what I bought!!! I had such fun - ended up going for 2 days instead of one, so much to see :o). I've started the Ella and Skysie stitchery that I bought ... I ALWAYS buy an Ella and Skysie stitchery when I go ... ALWAYS :o). ............. And scissors, I can't resist scissors he he he .....................
As you can see there's a couple of pairs in that piccy above he he he. I also found 'Fortunes and Fairies' there ... I haven't seen them at the shows before and they had a fabulous range of fabrics and they were in 30cm strips (which I prefer) rather than fatties so I got myself a nice selection ..... don't you just LOVE the rosy one at the back ..... I got half a metre of that one and now I'm wishing I'd bought more he he he!!! No problem though, they have a website I can always pop in there.I couldn't sleep last night ... I tossed and turned for what seemed like ages!!! Then I had an 'epiphany' as my friend Persephone would call it ......... now I can't tell you too much more as I'm going to do my best to get this design made up this weekend - but I can tell you that these .......... have something to do with it :o)!!!!!!!!!!

Have you got your latest issue of Creating Country Threads yet!!!!! Oh you just have to buy this one ............ it's got a gorgeous pattern in it by the beautiful Cheryl Goss from Willowberry Designs - one of my darling Gumnut Sisters!!!!!
That's her wonderful cushion on the right hand side above "lend a helping hand" ..... and you can also read all about her as they've done a profile story about Cheryl too!!!!

That's it from me, I've got some designing to do - but before I go if you're after a bargain - pop on over to Jenny's Elefantz Etsy shop!!! She's having a FABULOUS SALE and there isn't much longer before it finishes ... be quick!!!!!
............... Happy Halloween everyone!!!!!!!!

Hi Joy, Could be ever so helpful - I too love the rose print with the words - I checked their website but could not find it. Could you tell the name and manufacturer so I can ask again. Thanks again Cheryl
