Ghastlie Mail

A box arrived for me!
I honestly forgot that while I've been crafting something for my swap partner, someone else has been crafting a little goodie for me.
This swap was the brain child of my friend Kathy over at Kwilty Pleasures.
Kwilty Pleasures
My benefactor is Heidi and look at all the great presents I found inside the box (Yes I did open the box and checked it all out before I put it all back in so that I could snap the picture)
I cannot believe that Heidi made me a doll!  I love her. Now I have my very own Prudence Ghastlie to keep me company in my studio.
The details are fabulous!  She is even all fancied up with a great apron and lace scarf. At some point I might be tempted to make her a few other Ghastlie outfits so that she can have an alternate look when she wants to.
Her "hair" is very cool....ribbon and ric-rac.
The box also contained all of these other goodies....a couple of Halloween stamps, some stickers and cupcake liners, a list pad and some great pumpkin socks.  Oh how I love my themed socks (you can read all about that here if you haven't already.)
And last but certainly not least, also included was this fun pillow cover using the very first Ghastlie feature fabric.  Now I will get to look at this fun print all the time (you didn't really think that I'd actually put it away after Halloween is over, now do you?)
The pillow backing is the wonderful skull fabric. I didn't have a pillow form this size so I ran out to one of the local stores yesterday to get one and wouldn't you know it but they were all out. Drat!  I'll have to try the other one today.
Thank you, thank you so very much Heidi.  You certainly made my day and I will cherish these Ghastlie goodies. And a huge thanks goes out to Kathy for putting this swap together.  I haven't had time this year to join in many swaps but I'm sure glad that I did this one.

My Ghastlie package is on its way to my secret partner and since she'll probably get it early next week I'll post about what I sent to her then. I hope you all have a Ghastlie great day.

Looks like you're set. I'm sure your doll will have a wardrobe all her own by this time next year =)

Great Ghastlie gifts! And of course the Ghastlies should be present at all times of the year. Looking forward to seeing what you sent to your partner.
