Hallowe'en Trick Or Treat Blog Hop 2016

Trick or Treat!

A collage of the spooky stitches I have completed since the last 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 have "moderate comments before publishing" enabled 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…

and finally back to me for this letter

and this picture:

This is Sampling Hallowe'en by Lizzie*Kate, a gift from Mii in our Hallowe'en Mail Art Exchange last year.  I stitched it on 28 count lilac linen using most of the recommended colours, a few changes so things would show up better on the lilac fabric, which is looking blue in this photo!  The little ghost charm was included with the chart.

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.

happy hunting!

  8. ciao Jo! thank you for another lovely blog hop! I've been waiting for a few hours for a few posts to be sure and even if some are still missing I'm pretty confident this year's clue is "when witches ride out in brooms" although I just thought, shouldn't it be "on brooms"?
    I hope you enjoyed a lovely Hallowe'en, here it's just an excuse to eat more candy and chocolate, which is exactly what I'm going to do right now! ;D

  9. When Witch's Ride Out On Brooms. I am assuming that is it but there were two blogs that didn't have a letter posted.

    When witches ride out on brooms.

  21. Thank you for organising the hop Jo, it's been fun and I've found some new blogs to follow.
    There is a letter missing at the moment so I'm having to guess at filling in the blank.
    It is either "When witches ride on out on Grooms" - which reminds me of the Wiccan wedding we shot a few years back, but seems kind of inappropriate for a blog children might read, or "when witches ride on out on Brooms"
    Hmm. Yes. I think I'm going to go with brooms

  22. One of the letters is still missing, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the phrase is: "When witches ride out on brooms." Thanks for letting me join in the fun! Have a good All Saints Day, if that's your thing; if not, have a good Tuesday!

  23. I have enjoyed this hop again,finding some new to me blogs. I really enjoyed seeing everyone's stitching. Here is the phrase.when witches ride out on brooms.

  28. Thanks for organising this hop Jo - I'm finally sitting down to hop on Bonfire Night!

  29. I thought by the time I came around with blog reading, it would be to late to enter a guess, but looks like I'm just in time! So if I didn't misshop, the phrase for this hop is: WHEN WITCHES RIDE OUT ON ?ROOMS, and I'm pretty sure that one letter I couldn't find is a B!

    Also, your blog hop made me add another three or four blogs to my list...not that I don't have enough to catch up on already!
