My package from Barbara, who had my name in the Autumn Swap, was a treasure chest. I feel very spoiled. Thank you sooo much Barbara, I love it all.
This pillow was stitched then made by loving hands and it is really nice.

This is a pinkeep she made and then put it into this cute little bag.

This is the reverse side of the pinkeep and a wonderful witch on a card and to answer it, I hope I am a good witch. Barbara and I have had many talks about how we like witches. She was born on Halloween.
These two cards were included, one from her home town.

Now then, just look at all this. It came in a little zipper bag. Orange sissors, how cute are they. A little book with my initial and a bookmard and needles. Wow, I am one lucky person here. I love it all. Soon Barbara will have a birthday and I am already getting her package together.

You received such special gifts. How great that Barbara has a birthday on Halloween. Your great-granddaughter is a beautiful young woman (she would have to be with you as her g-grandmother). I am anxious to hear more about your Mississippi cruise.

What a great gift packet from Barbara! She did a beautiful job with both the pinkeep and the pillow. And what a load of extra goodies. I guess you must be a good witch. LOL!
