     Pumpkin coaster (5''x5''), Teal Mini Mug Rug (3'' x 6'')

    The coaster is a tradition: every year, on October 15th, we celebrate Pumpkin's day (the day when Pumpkin (our cat friend) joined our family). For this day I will cook many cool dishes, and as a memory I make a little coaster to use for the year. This year I decided to make a HST pumpkin... each square finishes 1'' so pieces are very tiny. I love it!!

    I made a Mini for my partner in the Teal Mini Swap (see last week's post) and with some leftover scraps I made myself a mini-mug rug, so that I will have a memory of what I made for my partner. I did this last year as well, and it is a good reminder.

    The only other thing I made are these cross stitching Xmas decorations.

    about 2.5'' x 2.5''

    They are stitched on red aida with glow in the dark floss. The effect is pretty cool. I will send them out with Xmas cards, because I like people to have a little hand made gift for the holidays

    Last, but not least, this is the block I received for my Hello Block Swap partner in September.
    I have 3 blocks to choose, and people can pick they favorite colors too...
    It is interesting to notice that I am getting many of these quarter flowers and many in pink.
