Squares to share!

Heather sent me these adorable little squares for the fair and Square
Halloween round. It is "Fright Cat" by Bent Creek. Any suggestions as
to what I could make these into? They are about 6" squares. Since the
design is more fall-ish and not so Halloween-ish, I can display them
through November. Any thoughts??

I think I will take a break from F & S until the Holidays are over.
From now until January first, I'm just too busy. I tend to make a
lot of my presents as opposed to buying them for people. It's just
getting to be so expensive and I think people love handmade things.
So between that, the kids, D.H. (cuz sometimes it seems like I have
4 kids, not 3), Christmas, and then youngest's Birthday 4 days after
Christmas, there's not much time left for me. I'm sure I'm not alone
on that one. Plus, I have found so many other wonderful groups/boards
out there that I just joined. I would like to give them a try too.
Take care everyone!

Some things I've been meaning to share...

I can't believe it's been almost 6 weeks since my last
post. Wow-time does fly. Between getting ready for
my craft fairs and then my FIL having a heart attack-
there just wasn't any time left in the day to post. I hope
to change that.
Anyway, first up is the Crazy exchange that I sent to
Carol. I decided on a fall design as opposed to a Halloween
one, that way she could display it until December. Not that
I don't love Halloween-because I do!

*LK's "welcome fall" from the "Autumn Things" leaflet
*Stitched on 28 ct. summer khaki linen
*I used sampler threads & WDW floss. The lettering is WDW's
holiday collection -"Indian summer". I love it!
*Made into a small wall hanging/banner.

Here's the entire exchange that I sent her. I'm so glad she likes
what I made.
