Barbara is my partner for the next year for the Seasonal Exchange and as you know I received a few weeks back the most wonderful parcel from her which was stuffed full of Barbaras wonderful finishes and the biggest wicker wreath to place them on, so I deliberated and deliberated on what to stitch for her, and finally decided on what you see above.

The pin keep is a Mary Garry Seasonal design and I knew that Barbara liked MG very much so I stitched it using a hand-dyed vintage looking linen. Its trimmed with black satin ribbon and orange and black pins.

The wee fob - which I have to add I am going to stitch for myself as he's too cute, is stitched using DMC Glo-in-the-Dark thread and it really works, the design is Heart in Hand if I remember rightly. He's stitched using the same linen, and I added the wee R.I.P. charm to the top.

I'm pleased that Barb liked it as I didn't strictly stitch Autumn, I stitched an Autumn event.

Can't wait to try out my ghostie in the dark!

I love it all Su. I have no Halloween stitching, so this is going to be great - it'll really get me in the mood! :D Thanks so much for the additional goodies, too.

I just saw this on Barbara's blog -what a fabulous exchange! I love it. How neat that the fob has glow in the dark thread! Here is a silly question ... how does one make that lovely knot at the top when attaching cording to such a fob? It may be impossible to describe. Have you ever seen instructions anywhere? You are wonderful Su and I know Barbara loves this gift!

I know I left you a comment Su, but I don't see it here so I'll leave another. I LOVE this! The pinkeep is so beautiful if you can call Halloween designs beautiful - personally I love them! And the fob is precious! If you have the time can you let me know who the designer is and the name of the pattern? Beautiful as always!
