Who's Your Mummy?

Last night I hosted our monthly cross stitch meeting, and as usual we had a blast with non-stop talking, lots of laughs and eating.  

If you've been following our blog for a while now,  you may have read in a previous post (or two) where we talked about the unexpected giving of gifts at these meetings.

Well, it just so happened last night was one of those nights and Jody was one of the "givers".

Since Halloween is creeping closer every day, Jody decided to go with the spooky theme and handed each of the 3 of us one of these mummies that she made...


 Aren't they just the cutest --and so simple to make too!!  She just wrapped vet tape around the glass container and stuck on the wiggly eyes.  We spent the next few minutes discussing what we could use them for... candy? a candle?... any suggestions out there??

Hmmm... maybe I could switch out my regular glass ort jar (that I've been using for the TUSAL) with my new mummy friend.  If that's the case, I'd better get stitching so I can fill him up!!

how cute are they! and I agree about a tea light but knowing you four there will be M&M's in one, Jube jubes in another one, Mints in another one and maybe Candy Kisses in the other. Definitely for candy.
You Four from Forest are just AMAZING
Be always in stitches
