Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop 2020

It's scream time and time for the Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop. I have two spooky finishes this year. The first is Just Nan's Scream Girls which I finished as a flat ornament and attached to a card.

Scream Girls - Just Nan
Fabric: 32ct Zweigart Natural Line
Threads: Suggested DMC threads, 
DMC 310 used for BOO lettering instead of Krenik #4 005

The second finish has been completed as a scissor fob.

Owls in Moonlight - Blue Ribbon Designs
Taken from Just Cross Stitch magazine, October 2014
Fabric: 40ct Zweigart Light Mocha linen
Threads: Recommended DMC threads. Stitched 1 thread over 2

The Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop is organised by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching. Follow the blog hop to find a list of all the blog participants and to collect a letter from each of them to complete a mystery phrase.  

This year I am the final blog listed and I have the letter L:

Work out what the mystery phrase is and hop back to Jo's blog to give her your answer. While there take some time to watch the slideshow of Jo's Spooky Scrapbook stitching.


  1. Great finishes for those lovely Halloween stitchings. Merci pour la lettre L. Joyeuses Fêtes ! Amicalement. XXX

  2. Lovely stitching and finishing!
    Happy Halloween!

  3. Two great finishes! Scream is very colourful, and I love the way you’ve finished it! I have a few cross stitch pieces that need FFO’ing, it’s nice to get different ideas like this, as I’m nervous that I might spoil things at the finish stage!
    Such a pretty scissor fob too!
    I’ve enjoyed visiting today!
    Happy Halloween!

  4. Both are great finishes, I love the ghost trio and the owls are perfect for the fall.
    Happy Halloween 🎃

  5. Great finishes! I really must get on the FFO'ing train. Those are beautifully done.

  6. I really love the owls, very autumnal.

  7. I love them both, Mary! I am a big fan of Just Nan, and the owls is darling...may have to hunt up that magazine! Happy Halloween!

  8. Two lovely designs Mary, I love the little scissor fob. Thanks for the letter.

  9. Great finishes for Halloween. I think I've seen these in person ;-) I'm just popping by but not hopping.

  10. Thanks for taking part in the Hallowe’en Blog Hop this year.
    I have stitched both those designs myself - great taste!

  11. Great Stitching! Thanks for the letter!

  12. Finally found time to hop along. What lovely finishes. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Love those screaming ladies - thanks for the letter!

  14. Such cute Halloween stitching, Mary! Funny, but I just pulled that owl chart last night to consider stitching for next year. Yours turned out darling :) Hope you are having a lovely November so far!
