A Thief in the Neighborhood, Give-Away Wins, A New Give-Away and more--

Hi, we have a thief in the neighborhood, he likes to steal shoes, but only one!  He also likes to steal pumpkins, I placed my large claypot scarecrow next to my front  door with a small real pumpkin, got home yesterday, the pumpkin was gone and my scarecrow was moved.  Found the pumpkin in the back yard with the stem broken off and a nice wet soggy diaper.  YUCK. Well,  I am calling him out, here is a picture of our thief.
We call  him "Whiskers" aka "the THIEF", because of all of the wire like whiskers on his snout.  He is one of the dumbest dogs I have ever seen, but cute none the less.  He loves my son and is our walking partner, if you open the car door he jumps in ready for a ride or open the front door in he walks, nothing like the neighbors dog that lives at your house!
 I recently participated in the "Fall Ornie Swap" thru the Prim Pals forum,  thanks to everyone who participated and to prim pals for hosting this.  We are doing a Christmas ornie swap next, this is the second one and last year's was so much fun.
A package was waiting for me when I got home this morning -
I was the second winner in Jean of Prim Crafts give-away.  Jean sent me some great Halloween items.  I love that cat with the pumpkins, and the pumpkin and the prim candelight.  Thank you, Jean.  It is very much appreciated.
 I also participated in the envelope swap thru Prim Pals, it was a secret swap and no one knew who their partner was, I received this great pin keep from Ginny N.  Thank you, Ginny, it is perfect as I collect sewing items.  As you see, I already have it placed so it is handy.


I also made a Santa, I usually only get one of these made.
 And of course, another Raggedy Ann, she has a monkey print wrap-around apron and is holding a  mini sock monkey.
 A new pattern, Liberty Creek Primitives was having a half off pattern sale and I got this one.  I used an old cutter quilt, that I tea-dyed then stiffened with starch for the wings and the added the stitching.
I put out a few more decorations for fall and Halloween, the witch and the pumpkin the front and shelf are from Lil Raggedy Angie and my new black cat and pumpkins from Jean.
 This is a quilted table runner, that I got in a swap last year, with Sew Diva Diane, I love the colors.A

I am still bringing out more, you gotta love those swaps!

And now for my new give-away, you must be a follower of this blog, new ones are welcome.  Just leave a comment on this post for one entry and if you post it on your blog, you will receive another entry, just leave me a note in this post.    The give-away is one of my Halloween Raggedy Bagholders.  The last day to enter is Oct. 1st, winner will be announced Oct. 2nd.  thanks, have a great weekend.
