Hallowe'en Mystery Phrase Blog Hop
Welcome to the spooky hallowe’en mystery phrase blog hop!
All you need to do is visit each of the following blogs in order, jot down the letter displayed with their Hallowe'en stitched picture then return here and leave a comment telling me the Mystery Phrase.
It'd be nice if you left a comment on their blog too, especially if it's new to you.
I've enabled "moderate comments before publishing" for the next week so no-one can copy anyone else!
There will be a small prize for one person picked at random from the guessers. People who posted a picture will get one chance for that and another chance if they make a guess too.
So without further ado,
start the blog hop – enter if you dare…
Fittingly the first blog is The Alychmyst's Study
Then onto This and That
and finally (just so it isn't thirteen) back to me:
This is an old piece, stitched sometime in the 1990s.
The ABC and border came from a book by Better Homes and Gardens called "Cross Stitcher's Big Book of Alphabets and Borders". And yes, it does exactly what it says on the tin!! I have used this book alot.
I centralised the alphabet and changed the shape behind the L to another skull rather than a beige paper bag with a white thing sticking out the top. The finished framed piece now lives in the Large Boy's room.
Finally, don't forget, some of us are on different time zones so if you visit a blog and can't find a letter or picture yet, pop back later in the day. The competition is open for one week closing 00.01 hours 7th November GMT. - Competition now closed!
