And here is finally my finished san man original Halloween pillowcushion.I have started this stitchery last year , but it was allready close to Halloween and I didn't finish it on time.So I picked it up a while ago and I decided to make a small pillow from it. I really love the way it looks. Now I have to finish the Halloween pattern I started stitching a while ago and hopefully I can finish that tonight.

Here are some lovely things I received from my new penfriend Manon. She is also from the Netherlands and it's amazing to see how many things we have in common!
She knows how much I love Christmas so she send me this cute embellishment from snowmans.They are adorable.

And she also send me these 2 lovely doilies.

She also has a lovely blog, you can find it here
I hope that everyone has a lovely weekend.

Well done with the Halloween stitchery. You have made it into a lovely cushion. I also adore the doilies and the snowman you received from your new penfriend.

it's lovely to find a friend that you have so much in common with. hopefully you live nearby and catch up - it's the one thing i find hard in blogland - you find friends but can't 'meet' them.
love the cushion - very cute!!

I recently came across your blog and quite enjoy it. I was wondering if you could share where you got the pattern for your darling peg bag - I would like to make one, too. Thanks. Have a great day.

Hallo Monique!
Wat leuk dat je mij gelinkt hebt op je blog!! Ik had ook al een andere engelstalige reactie en begin mij af te vragen of ik de blogberichten ook in het engels moet maken..maar ik maak vast giga veel schrijffouten in het engels..
Wat leuk dat je de kleedjes al gebruikt. Ik ben het helemaal eens met Levin and Emily, dat het jammer is dat je blog vriendinnen niet kunt ontmoeten. Het is toch veel afstandelijker dan pennen!
Fijne week toegewenst,

Hi's Heather here...your swap partner. My email is not working so I thought I'd use your comments section to let you know your package arrived and I LOVED IT. My kids moaned with joy as they stole my chocolate and ate it. The material, the knitted pumpkin, the stickers...all of it so thoughtful and lovely. Thank you. Let me know when you get your box. Thanks again.
