Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop 2018

Hello fellow stitchers and followers!
If you are here regularly then you know that Halloween is not in my stitching themes.
But last year I decided I really wanted to stitch something on the subject and I was lucky enough to win one of Jo's  of Serendipitous stitching giveaways.
It was Happy Halloween and I really loved it and stitched it.
It took me almost a year to do so LOL!I am a slow stitcher!
Jo even gifted me with the glow-in-the-dark thread for it.
So here it is !
How do you like it?
 Some details.

  I framed it into an old IKEA frame I already had.
 Here it is hanging on my kitchen wall along with other Halloween items I have.

And here you can see the glow-in-the-dark ghosts and moon and stars of the pattern in my poor photos. 

The Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop is an amusing way to spend sometime visiting blogs this Halloween and is organised by Jo again. 
You can find all the blogs here.
If you visit all the blogs gather the letters each blog gives and decode the secret phrase.
Then run back to Jo's blog to tell her the phrase. You have a week to do so.
It's fun! Also you may win one of her gifts.
If you leave a comment here on my blog about my stitched frame let me know if you would be interested in stitching Happy Halloween yourself. I will randomly choose one of the comments to send the pattern to anywhere in the world.
Since it was gifted to me I want to gift it too.
So please mention if you are interested in winning it!I will leave this open till November 7th.
 As you can see Barca my dog always helps me when I take pictures!
Finally the letter I was given for the phrase is the letter L. It's L like we say LEMON, LOL! I stitched the letter myself. I have made a whole booklet with the alphabet. You can read all about it here.
And now go to the next blog to pay a visit! It is the wicked stitcher!
Enjoy the blog hop!
Halloween hugs from me!

Thanks for taking part in the Hallowe'en Blog Hop this year.
Please don't include me in the draw LOL but good luck to everyone else who enters.

I love the witches that are flying around the finished piece.
Of course, your embroidered L is beautiful.

I love this piece (please count me in for the giveaway)! It's such a cute one filled with everything Halloweeny. How nice that you had the perfect frame for it already. Your flying witches are awesome too. Glow-in-the-dark thread is really hard to get to show up in photos!

Thank you for the letter and Happy Halloween~

I love your gorgeous Happy Halloween piece and would be delighted to stitch it myself so please put my name in the hat. I have only ever stitched a tiny design for Halloween as like in Greece, it is not celebrated much here in Spain although gathering popularity each year. Beautiful alphabet book you have stitched.

Christine said...

That is a stunning finish! Thanks for the letter

I love it, you stitched it beautifully! It looks perfect with your witches. I like the glow in dark thread, I just wish it would last longer.
Thank you and Barca for offering to pass on the pattern, please include me.

I'm haunting my way through collecting letters. I loved this piece when Jo finished it. I love it now that you finished it too. I would love to be entered into the drawing. How fun to continue to pass it on. Love the glow in the dark threads and the way you displayed it. Barca makes a beautiful photo bomb too.

Oh, what a great finish! I'm a little tempted to be entered into the giveaway, but I have more than enough Halloween projects do keep me busy for a decade, so I'll refrain. Thanks for the letter, though!
