I was surprised when I opened this box, I was expecting another swap and assumed that was what I was opening.I kept pulling packages out and finally stopped and looked at the name and realized it was the Thanks Giving Swap. Michelle sent me all sorts of goodies.
This swap was hosted by Wendy.

I'm getting this in late, since it's pinned it, made it! Monday---I had to back date it since it's really Tuesday when I uploaded the pictures.:-)
pinned. I just gathered some small twigs and used a bigger one for the handle. I wrapped with jute and then tied it with aged cheesecloth. I added a tag that says free rides.
I also made this cute little ghost.

The pin I made today is one that I pinned a long time ago, when I pulled my Halloween decorations out I grabbed this old trick or treat pumpkin and some Christmas lights. I couldn't find the branches in our yard, but yesterday while picking up walnuts at my in-laws, I found two on the burn pile.
Here is the link to the original: Tammy at A Primitive Place blogged about it last year here. I still have crows to add to the tree branches. My 12 yr old asked "Why there was a Christmas Tree on the porch?" Whatever kid!

I finally dug my autumn and halloween stuff out today. On one side of the mantle, I placed my Party Lite bones collection. The witch's boot, hat and candy corn were from an ornie swap on Prim Pals last year.
This is the autumn side, isn't that a cute pumpkin stichery?

I've been wanting to make a picnic blanket, I saw on Pinterest (I didn't add the ties). Years ago I made a blue jean quilt, no backing, no binding, we used it for all sports events but if the ground was wet so were we. I found the tablecloth material in the remnants at JoAnn's. The squares are from a quilt square swap from the La Leche League 50th Anniversary Conference in 2007 that was held in Chicago. I have a few left over that I'll use with some other LLL memorabilia and make a small quilt or wall hanging or who knows what I might come up with in the meantime. I used 4 squares across and 5 down, I ended up cutting some squares in fourths to make it match the size of the backing, I used embroidery floss to tie the quilt.

I wanted to make some salsa and found this recipe and picture from Six Sisters' Stuff. I made a few changes since I was lacking a few ingredients, I only had pickled jalapenos, so I used those instead and no lime juice. It tasted wonderful but need to add more jalapenos because I love spicy and it wasn't hot enough for me.
Isn't this a pretty picture? My husband had been feeling under the weather last week and I had just pinned this recipe for a home remedy. So he made it up and he added garlic. He also took a bigger dose then was suggested, he said he felt he could smell and breathe better a few hours later.
I am sewing and making prims but need to finish and take photos so hopefully soon.
