It's time to get your SPOOKY on!


As you can see, I have been doing a little shopping. I have loads of ideas for goodies to make, and have gathered all of my Halloween patterns, ordered fabrics, pulled threads from my stash and purchased a couple of really neat ones to add to my collection. This is the first year that I have really been bitten by the Halloween bug. I have my feather tree out and want to fill it with ornaments so I need to get busy stitching. I think the colors are so much fun and there are lots of great patterns available for spooky stitching!

What's this? Peter piper picked a peck of pickled pumpkins????? As you can see, I have two. One for me, and one for whoooooooo? You? Maybe. Leave a comment on THIS post and tell me what you are stitching for Halloween. I will draw a name and announce a winner next Friday before I leave for the weekend retreat I am going on. The lucky winner will receive the pattern, a piece of the 10 count Sweet Potato Heatherfield fabric, and the two skeins of DMC size 5 perle cotton required to stitch this Halloween quicky! And maybe I will even post another giveaway...... That is, if I don't scare everyone away with this one!

Have a great day!

What a fun giveaway! Enter me, please.

The only thing I'm stitching for the holiday (so far) is a little exchange giftie.

Your Halloween stash is SUPER...I need to go shopping!

Halloween is not celebrated in Finland that much; thus my stitching is mainly for exchanges and such. One ornament (freebie from Barbara Ana) and one biscornu (both sides freebies, too). But I would love to stitch a Stitchie Witchie for myself (BB freebie)!!!

Count me in, please!

Love you giveaway and right now I am stitching up my pumpkin blackwork checkerboard. Just finish the game pieces to my tictactoe board.

Your giveaway is cute would love to stitch it. This is my first reading of your blog. Love the pictures of what you have made or received for exchanges. Have not stitched any halloween yet except for a couple of plastic canvas exchanges. I am getting ready to stitch the tic-tac-toe from Saphirestitching as soon as I finish my biscornu for bbi.

Haven't stitched for Halloween prior to this year, but now am doing a SAL on ILCS & also Brooke's Books has given us a cute freebie. Your little witch would complement these well. Like to be counted in for your drawing please!

I just finished AlmaLynne's "Queen of Halloweenie" and am now starting on Joans SAL. I love the fabric you picked out for your ornaments. I found some great ones last year and am trying to figure out how to make a Tuck Pillow for my small ornament stitches.

I've just found your blog and love it. Please enter me in your wonderful drawing. I've already stitched the Bent Creek Black Cat and plan to stitch lots of Halloween ornaments this year. I've collected all the charts (LK, Helga Mandl, Barbara Ana, Brooks Books, SapphireStitching, & SMO)and bought Halloween print fabric for the backs. I plan to create my first Halloween tree.

Please enter me in your giveaway. I'm working on 123 Blackbird Zippie for my fall collection. I teach an hour away from my home so time is precious.

Of course I want in on this one! :) So, what am I stitching on for Halloween? My Fair & square Halloween block and a Halloween surprise for a friend. Packing up my house keeps the sewing needle out of my hand! :(

Look at your cute halloween-y stuff ;) As soon as I get a few exchanges out of the way I'm going to stitch L*K's Hocus Pocus :)
