Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop 2014

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…

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!

all from Hyraea

Finally, Theme-a-licious and the Just Nan Updates will follow on All Saints' Day tomorrow.

Mii Stitch said...

Jacqueline Morris said...

Congratulations on a marvelous Halloween Blog Hop :)
I have had so much fun looking at every ones blogs, seeing what they have stitched too... simply brilliant!
After hop hop hopping I have gathered all my letters and come up with..."PUMPKINS & BLACKCATS" it was a lot of fun to collect and take part in :)
Happy Halloween to you!!
Smiles :)

Christine said...

That was fun Jo! I found some great new (to me) blogs to follow.
Some letters not up yet. I can get a few different phrases depending how I fill in the blanks. I toyed with "Pimp, kiss, & blame cats" for a while, but now I've decided to go with "Pumpkins & Black Cats"

Great fun xx Happy Halloween xxxx

Suz said...

This has been really fun and I'm happy to have been able to be a part of it!

I'll throw out a guess (even though not everyone has had a chance to get their letter up), since I think I've figured it out, Wheel of Fortune style ;)

Pumpkins & Black Cats

Musicwoman said...

This was such a fun hopping through all the bloggs. Thanks for this great fun.
I guessed the solution and had written to you.

EvalinaMaria said...

I missed this one!
There is a couple of letters missing but I think the phrase is 'pumpkins & black cats'

Emma/Itzy said...

Thank you for hosting the fun blog hop again this year, I will have to make sure I have one stitched ready for next year :)

Perhaps I could join in the Advent Christmas Event if you do that again - it is always good fun!

I found a few new blogs to me this time - Thank you! :)

Finally stopped by to see what this blog hop is all about. I have the words and it's too cute. What a great idea to do to get people to see new to them blogs. I added you to my blog list.

I found a few new blogs this time around; thank you, ma'am! I always enjoy these holiday ones you have.

Karin in CA said...

Hi Jo! Even though AllXXXs hasn't posted her letter yet, I believe the phrase is:
Pumpkins & Black Cats

:) And thank you for the blog hop which introduced me to more patterns I have to have and new SALs to join.

What a fun hop. Thank you for the introduction to so many wonderful blogs.

sew.darn.quilt said...

Good Grief, I forgot to add the Mystery Phrase, too much candy ;)

Diann said...

The phrase is
Pumpkins & Black Cats
I enjoyed visiting the blogs and seeing everyone's projects. I like your Spell of the Moon project. You don't see many Halloween projects stitched on orange-a shame because it looks really good.

Katie said...

The hidden phrase is Pumpkins & Black Cats. Thank you for hosting.

ShelEm said...

That was super fun. I've been a long time skulker but still discovered some new blogs (and some lovely patterns!) Thank you for organizing.

Pumpkin & Black Cats

Unknown said...

Thanks for organising this. I had great fun exploring some new (to me) blogs this weekend. In fact it was the main reason I didn't make a lot of progress with any of my WiPs. But then lack of time is a common theme on most stitching blogs isn't it?

Anyway I think the phrase is

Thoeria said... this was fun! Almost forgot to come back here and give the phrase!
Very clever :)

cheryl said...
