Yep, today is Halloween.... and while we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia as much as other countries it has certainly started to gain some popularity recently.... and I am more than happy to jump on the bandwagon!!
Today's post is two-fold - firstly I will show you my Friday Frolics stitching from last night and then it's onto my Halloween bit....
As you would have read on previous posts, Friday Night is all about frolicing around with our WIP's and then posting what we have stitched on the "Friday Frolics" blog which is hosted by Kaye (Kitten Stitching).
Last night I stitched on my Margaret Sherry Christmas Mouse.... Mouse number 3! Yes, you're right that means number 2 is finished :o) (will show you a pic shortly of the finished mouse #2)
So when I started stitching on Mouse #3 last night he looked like this:

As I mentioned earlier I finished Christmas Mouse #2 this week,

Now who's ready for a Halloween Blog Hop? Yep, you got it right - it's time for Serendipitous Jo's Annual Halloween Blog Hop......
Each year Jo asks all the participants to show a picture of something Halloween related that they have stitched and she also sends us a Letter for a the mystery phrase - so now you need to write down my letter.... and then click on the link below to go to the next blog on the hop. If you get lost head back to Jo's blog and she will have all the blogs playing along listed in order so you can make sure that you are on the right track!
Now for the reveal... my letter is:
I love Halloween stitching because it generally incorporates my two favourite colours - orange and purple together!! Over the last couple of years I have stitched one or two pieces for the Halloween SAL Blog and while I have a couple of favourites I have to show you my absolute favourite Halloween stitch so far....

So, now that you have finished with my part of the Halloween Blog Hop it's time for you to fly over to the next blog on the hop.... say hi to Lenore at Needle, Pen and Sword for me....
Well that's it from me for today....
Hope you have a great Halloween, stay safe and happy stitching
