I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

edelC: What a soothing, happy, quilt for your friend.

AoC- Great mail organization idea! And I LOVE the candy corn cross stitch! That is fantastic.

LM- Those owls are c-u-t-e! I love the bright, retro-y ornament garland and, of course, whichever journal is mine in the pic. The others are cool, too Grin They're truly fabulous prizes and I'm very thankful and thrilled with mine. The sparkly soap and the turkey caramel apple tray are awesome, too! What cool ideas!

Smeddley- Wow, that leash may not make you happy, but it certainly looks effective!

cADD, thanks for the comments! Here's the tutorial I used for the yarn star ornaments. To make them striped, either wrap with two strands at once for the criss-cross look, or wrap one color all the way around followed by the other for even stripes. Your canning looks delicious, and the seasonal display area sounds like a great idea!

Smeddley, I love your little kodama! They are some of my favorite little beings ever.

elliot_anne, thank you for your comments! Your family looked so cute for Halloween! And congrats on tackling macarons, they look they came out well.
