Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop 2020


 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!


So without further ado,
start the blog hop – enter if you dare…



And then back here to leave a comment.  I do not have a letter this year.  But I do have a nice slideshow of my Spooky Scrapbook for you all to enjoy:



I also have a great fully finished project.  This was "Beware" - my Just Nan Band Sampler for September and October.  I stitched a band every week or two for the larger bands.  

stitched on 32 count tea dyed linen

Close-ups


I did not have the charted bat charm so I used a spider instead


The bottom row of boxes are stitched in 310 and 550 stripes then Kreinik 027 in a spiral pattern.



I had this wonderful sign I bought from Poundland last year which perfectly fits this design. Originally it had 3 skulls. I just cut off the centre one (save that for another project) then I stretched the stitching over a piece of stiff card and stuck it to a piece of scrapbook paper cut to size. Thread the rope through some holes made with a sharp point and you have an FFO:



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 phrase will stay a mystery for one week then all comments will be shown from 7th November, 2020.

happy hunting!

I love it all. What a wonderful way to display your Halloween stitching! I also loved Beware. What a fun stitch! I missed the blog this year as I was so busy with Coming To America. I missed participating!

So many wonderful Halloween pieces, I love them all! Beware looks fantastic and you found the perfect way to display it.
Thanks for this treat, we really needed it!

The phrase - come sit for a spell - sounds good to me!

Unfortunetaly, today it's beware of kisses and hugs, sniff. Could be a good news for ghosts, we are more afraid of a virus! But we still have cross stitching and yours is great! Thanks for the blog hop. Here is my phrase : Come, sit for a spell. Love. xxx

Love the finish, that's excellent! And again, great inspiration with the slide show, thank you.

I enjoyed watching your little video of your scrapbooked Halloween finishes, Jo. It's so creative! Do you ever remove anything from it and turn things into pillows or frame them? Just curious :)

Beware is wonderful--I think I have that chart and should really stitch it one year. Hope you have a great month ahead ♥

You have stitched some super cute Halloween things over the years! It was really fun to see them all! That vampiress at St. Marco's in Venice is really wonderful, and I love the skeletons and the pumpkin face spider...oh there are some great ones in your collection! Happy Halloween, Jo!

Sheryl said...

Wonderful stitched pieces on your video and the Beware stitchery is impressive Jo. Great hop as always and lovely work to admire. Thank you for organising this fun hop once again this year. I found the phrase to be Come, sit for a spell.

Beware is fabulous!
The phrase is "Come, sit for a spell"

"Come, sit for a spell"; the "and stitch" is implied :) Thanks again for hosting the bloghop!

Just made it through the hop and I think the mystery phrase is 'Come, sit for a spell'! Loved to see all the pieces, including your Beware sampler. Those metallic spirals on the bottom blocks are so pretty.
