Hi, everyone! My HOE Halloween exchange project finally made it to its destination in Nova Scotia, Canada today.

I was quite worried for a while after I mailed it because after it got to Canada and cleared customs, the tracking number kept on insisting that it was on its way from Miami all over again (the original departure city in the US)!!! For a while I thought maybe the package failed at customs and was being sent back to me! I was so glad when this morning it said it had been delivered.

While searching for a cute Halloween design to stitch for my partner, Rosa of Working with my Hands, I found a lovely design by Les Grilles de Maryse.

I decided to finish it as a no-sew cube. I had help choosing the backing fabric. I had two types of fabrics in my stash and after asking for Amanda's advice, I went with the darker pumpkin fabric.

I used an orange fabric and mulitcolored ribbon for the side and top of the cube.

I had a lot of fun making this project and I hope my partner liked her exchange :)

Until next time >___<

  1. Wonderful, this cube finishing. And perfect for the design you chose for the exchange. I also stitched this lovely Halloween design a couple of years ago and it was a lot of fun.
