which Christine thought sounded like a Heston Blumenthal soup. They are both used in spells to steal a witch's power. And poison her too!
I asked everyone to pick their favourite chart from the three on offer and put all the names on a spreadsheet. If you were a picture poster you got an extra chance in the draw.
The most popular chart was Hallowe'en Happiness by Imaginating and the winner of this one is:
Ariadne said "As Halloween is not celebrated here I haven't got any stitched pieces. I only show some Halloween things (pumpkin, carving tools, a little witch and stickers) to my pupils and we draw a haunted house. Well who knows till next year I might have my own stitched piece and might take part in the blog hop you will organize next year too!"
So I am holding her to that, next October I shall expect to see a start at the very least!
The second most popular chart was Shepherd's Bush Spooky Night and the winner is:
The final chart was Stacy Nash's Cast Your Spell and the winner is:
A lot of people did not specify a chart so I put all the names back in and drew one more. I already have this person's address so they will get a small surprise some time before Christmas! I don't have addresses for the other three winners, so please email them to me.
Since Dark October finished I have returned to my usual rotation, starting with the Zodiac stitching for the SAL. I am so pleased that everyone is enjoying this SAL so far and we've had a couple of people link up too. I was enjoying the Satsuma Street Virgo so much that I decided to do a few more days on her and try complete the top half of the chart.
So if you'd like to join in, please leave a comment or send me an email. Let me know if there is a date you would particularly like or one you'd like to avoid. I will be in touch towards the end of the month!
Here is a link to last year's so you can see how it works:
Finally, I track my comments and I recently received my 15,000th comment from MsOhSewCrafty! No, she didn't make all 15,000, that's the cumulative total from you all. Thank you so much for commenting on each post. I try to reply to all even those tricky no-reply people! I do appreciate that you take the time to visit, read and comment. Thank you.
