A Halloween Treat from Mary Cartledge-Hayes

I couldn't have asked for a nicer surprise if I had gone trick-or-treating door-to-door!  So wonderful to hear from Mary, who has been a regular Halloween mail-art friend. This year, she sent a hand-stitched quilted piece on cardboard with plenty of Halloween themed characters—cats and bats and skeletons and ghosts... The soft, cozy fabric makes them all seem much more friendly and less scary than they might've expected themselves to be. And all of this great textile work came in a self-created envelope featuring gloomy skies over a canyon landscape.

Quite wonderful. Thank you, Mary. This all came on a day when a friend's 'hello' in the mail was greatly appreciated and warmed my heart some.

Here is the back of Mary's piece, which shows her resourcefulness in recycling, too!
