Halloween Ornament Swap

I joined in on a
 Halloween Stitchy Ornament swap
over at
The plan was to stitch up anything
"Halloweenish" for your partner
and make it into an Ornament for
them to display this year for Halloween.

Heres what I made for my partner. 
With a scary Halloween Raven!!

It was a quick little stitching project for me,
 I like how it turned out...I sure
hope my partner does too..I am sending along
4 Sees Candies Lollipops with her ornament..chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch and
Café Latte! Yummo!!!

And here is what I received
from my parter Jenn...super cute!

I love love love that little tiny 
black cat stitchery, so cute!
A Yummy Maple lollipop , some cute
ribbons, a pattern and the most adorable 
hand made Halloween card...

Thanks Jenn!!

Its done! Yay!  My Bonnie Hunter Spider Web Quilt is
finished and I love it!  I even longarmed it myself, a major step!
This was the biggest quilt I have longarmed myself to date!

Here it is on the frame...not very much room left for this 
quilt to be any bigger!

Heres a close up of my loopy loops...not to shabby!

Needless to say, finishing up the binding on this beast took me a 
couple of days but it is done done done and I have it on my
bed for ME! Its so cozy and warm, a perfect winter quilt!

Richard & Tanya Quilts for

On the frame!!

Got another quilt loaded onto the longarm frame today..

This is a scrappy strings quilt with a 
scrappy green pieced backing..

I did stipple for the first time on this 
quilt, I like how it looks...I used green thread 
both in the top and bobbin...looks good so far!

Quilt Doodles BOM

I finished the final row of the 
Quilt Doodles BOM! 

The last row was the cute little
Christmas lights at the top.  

I have the first row shown below which was snowmen to put on the bottom 
but I have to add their button eyes first.
You can see that row in the
bottom photo..

I am loving how this quit is coming out...there are
more surprises coming to finish it up..
