Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Here's Tater, dressed up as a pirate. Luckily I was able to get his costume finished on Sunday, not that he's going trick-or-treating or anything, he's too little!

I participated in a Halloween shoebox swap. Here are the 2 handmade things I sent... a little quilt, about 20" square and a Halloween apron. Thanks to my partner Cathy for letting me be a little late...she received her package on least it was in time to wear the apron!

owls owls and more owls

Recently I participated in Missy's Owl Swap. What a fun idea! I had an awesome partner, Raesha! Here's what she sent me...A cute tote bag for Tater! I love the material! He also loves to get a hold of the stuffed owls, but I'm keeping them for myself! A decorated notebook and a set of note cards. I can't wait to send one! Aren't they great? Thank you so much Raesha! I'd take you for a partner anytime! And this is the stuffed owl (pink striped) I sent to her. (You can see the tote bags I sent to her on her blog.) The blue and orange owl is my prototype and will now live in Tater's room with all the other animals. I don't know why their bodies are so different, as they are made from the same pattern. I guess they're just like people, all shapes and sizes.
