Fall Intrigue Basket Swap

Here is the basket I made for the Fall Intrigue Basket Swap.  I found this lovely copper basket at a thrift store and thought it was perfect for the swap.  My partner was Margaret of the Rusty Plum.  She has posted pics also. 

Here are some of the items I included in the basket.

A candle with embroidery leaf and vintage vinegar and oil with machine embroidery towels.  Both the leaves and veggies were made on my Janome 11000 embroidery machine.

A Halloween stamp and Halloween apron.  The apron was designed and sewn by

Two tags I made from from Graphic 45 scrapbook paper and a handmade "Friends" fabric postcard.

Brown Aida cloth and fall colored floss, pumpkin kitchen scrubber, and vintage inspired napkins.

What a fun swap.  I have been on vacation and will receive my basket later this week.  Happy Fall!
