Gifty goodness

Ok First up. Kim and I are doing a one on one Halloween Swap. I made this for Kim, she got it today. So I can show you: It's a quilted wall hanging. With bats. Kim loves bats.
This was my first time doing stippling quilting. I KNOW it's not supposed to cross, Kim doesn't know that though so I don't think she will care. I stippled my name right in too!
I also did a FREAK TON of satin stitching. Like too much really. But who cares, I like the look. I can tell it was too much because this tiny wall hanging quilt took THREE spools of thread. haha.

In other gifty news my mom SCORED BIG for me at her thift shop. Me, Mom, Kim, and my brother Jeff keep a blog called THRIFT FINDS which you can see the stuff mom got me on. I called her up and she said there really is tons more, doesn't want to totally ruin the suprise. I'm super excited.
