IsikkahJai - That's a nice package. I like the Neverending Story doll. So cute. And the Clue hoop is such a clever idea. What movie is the wire wrapped pendant from? That's a beautiful piece.

Smeddley - Spaceballs the novelization? That's got to be a hoot. I've never seen that. What a cool find.

alwaysinmyroom - That pendant is so cool. What a great idea for a frame. It's so detailed, even down to the brides ring. Very creative. I was wondering how big it was. That's the perfect size.

whatthepuck - What a cute garland and box. I love secret/hidden things like that. The colors are great too.

This gallery is one for the books.

The journal is beautiful, a true work of art. And that Hocus Pocus hoop is really cute.

Potted Rosemary, that's hilarious. I like her accessories.

PromisedHeartbrk - I hope my graveyard will encourage you to do miniatures because you did an amazing job with it. It's going to be my Halloween centerpiece this year.

I got my package from fatewineroses today and I'm still reeling from all the goodies. She is the best swap partner and I'm so lucky to have gotten her this round.

The package was quite an emotional journey. First she brought the laughs with this from Monty Python and the Holy Grail:



Without any prompting she managed to hit one of my favorite quotes from the movie. That whole scene with the French knights never fails to make me laugh, just like I did when I saw that plaque.

Then I discovered this from Young Frankenstein:



I don't know how many times I've seen Young Frankenstein - a bunch. My favorite scenes are between Victor and Igor. I'm so blown away by this I can't even express it. I just sat and stared when I opened it. Talk about tiny stitching! And a portrait! I can't even imagine how something like this is done.

Then I opened this from Aladdin:






And the lining:



How did she know yellow is my favorite color? And once again the quote is perfect. She's either the world's best stalker or she's psychic. I swear I teared up when I saw this because of Robin Williams. The lining is a tribute to his beautiful soul.

Then there was this from Lord of the Rings:



The Eye of Sauron! Old Lord of the Rings himself! lol

You think that's the best thing about it, the evil reptilian eye? No, not at all. It also... lights up! Yes, that's right, my very own, glowing Eye of Sauron.  I couldn't get a picture of it lit up, it washed out to much. Suffice it to say it's bloody awesome!

And did I mention the candy? There was candy too, was being the operative word.  Cheesy

Fatewineroses, you're the best. Thanks so much!

I received a really amazing scene from my partner today. PromisedHeartbrk is awesome!

There are a lot of pics here so be patient. This graveyard scene deserves better pictures than my poor photography skills, but here goes:

Just look at the little gateposts. It's full of great details.




Here's another view:



And another:



And as if that wasn't enough, I also got a batty mug, some spooky s'mores (their tiny costumes are adorable), and some fabulous Halloween fabric.

Spooky extras:





Thanks so much, PromisedHeartbrk! You're an awesome swap partner!

Aw, PromisedHeartbrk, your little girl looks adorable in that hat! Looks like you lost it after all. lol

Thanks everyone for your comments about the towels. I might make a set of those for myself.

What a great package, TrickyMcVomit. The Minnie Mouse ears are so cool, and I love the Nightmare Before Christmas potholders and trivet. The patchwork pattern for the Annie potholder is a real nice touch. The pillow is a great find, and the buttons are creepy cool.

Quaggy, those zombie sheep are fantastic! I love all the Halloween fabric, and the glow in the dark doilies. The death bottle hanging and skull and crossbones are great decorations too.

This gallery seriously rocks!

LOL Blue. The Venom Committee. I love it!

I'm so glad you like the towels and everything else, Promisedheartbrk. I love puns but I'm never sure if others will. They were a lot of fun to make.

That hat looks good on you, hide it, hide it! lol And I really love your black cat tattoo. That's awesome!

I wish I had gotten my package today like I was supposed to, but I'll check my mail first thing tomorrow. Surely they will have gotten it in the box by then.

I really love the embroidery Lindy did too. It's such a great design. I wish I could make my stitches so even.

And that ghost with the Mickey Mouse ears. OMG! So cute, Whistley!

Thanks, penguin, it was fun making that Boba Fett bag. When I saw those bags I thought "That's something I can cross stitch on."  Smiley I didn't know the other symbol was a mythosaur skull. I just knew, like fatewineroses, that it was on the uniform. The things we learn from these swaps.  Grin

That's the one I heard too, artsycandice. There are king snakes with the same colors but the sequence is different. I wouldn't trust myself in a real life situation to differentiate though.

I wouldn't handle a venomous snake but I've picked up garter snakes before. They're pretty docile.
