My New "Assistant", Another Great Swap and a new Give-Away

Hi, hope everyone is having a great start to the week.  I finally got a helper and let me tell you, he thinks he is helping, but he is not.  I work at a small library and when we moved 3 years, this male, black cat was eating out of the dumpster and not friendly at all.  He became ours, we named him LC (Library Cat), I know novery original, but he likes it.  One of our patrons operates a pet rescue and helped us get him spayed and ever since, he wants to stay in our office, be petted and eat.  He loves my desk, as you can see, this is one of his favorite spots, as well as your chair, if you get up.
 When I got home today, there were two packages waiting for me, my swap with Lil Raggedy Angie. She sent way too much, as usual.  But sooooo happy she did!
 I know she knows I live in Florida, but a window fan?   Naw, she just used the box.

I wanted one of her witches and the shelf that she is sitting in, and that got us started on our swap.  She included a pumpkin, candy corn, a mini rag doll, fall pip berries and some "real" candy corn and ....
 some prim stocking, vintage lace and embroidery work
Lace, some wonderful yarn for doll hair, and of course that fabric, love the green and the pumpkin print.  Have to think what I am going to make with it.
 A cute little dress

 A small wooden swing.  Thank you Angie, you are the best.  If you haven't visited her, please do, she is having a give-away, Lil Raggedy Angie. We have to do another real soon.

 I finished up some orders this week, and finally got to work on some Christmas items, working on making a little herd of them.  Want to get started on some ornaments, our show will be here before you know it.
And, a new give-away to say thank you for following.  The rules are simple :  you must be a follower, new ones are welcome.  You will get an extra entry if you are already a follower and you must leave a comment on this post.  I will announce the winner on Sunday.  Thanks, Cyndy
