Here it is! The last Halloween swap done and delivered! (now to move on to Christmas swaps)
My mom and big sister LOVED the wall hanging I made for Kitty (Very Vintage Halloween Swap) I told them I’d make one for them if they’d do a swap with me. Both said yes! Each of these two wall hangings are a little different.
This is for my Mom, with her neverending love, and her amazement at all I’ve been doing with my blog and Fairy Child Heirlooms. She is a wonderful Suzuki piano teacher and has wonderful creative ideas of her own. I’ve inherited several patterns she used to make some amazing clothes for me and my siblings when we were young children.
Mom gave me this book. It was one of my Oma’s books back when she was a young schoolteacher.
This one is for Beth @ Road To Joy. She’s my older sister and my best friend. She’s an inspiration of creativity to all those around her. I talked her into FINALLY setting up her own blog! Beth is the sister that taught me how to smock 12 1/2 years ago, and gave me a passion of heirloom sewing! I’ve been competing with her all my life, but only because I want to be just like her!
~~I also made a set of the wall hangings for myself that are Just like these ones~~

Beth gave me some wonderful ‘3 Sister’s, Paris Flea Market’ fabric! I haven’t decided for sure what to make with it yet but I just love it!
