Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween to you all. I hope you all stay safe but still have fun. Hubby and I had Ghoul-lash for dinner and spooky snacks for our usual Saturday quiz with friends via Messenger. As it was Halloween and our 30th quiz night (unbelievable) we all set questions on a given spooky theme... mine was food and drink.

This year's Halloween Exchange was just between myself, Christine and Mary, we had to stitch a scissor fob. I found a great Halloween alphabet which I used to stitch Christine's initials, one on each side, and included a witch treat. 

My exchange came from Mary, she stitched a beautiful scissor fob as well as an ornament that she used for the card too, very clever. Mary also sent some Halloween serviettes which wear great to use with dinner.

I put our Halloween things out, nothing scary really, more scarecrows and pumpkins than ghosts and ghouls. I lit my porcelain tealight holders, they always give a good flicker. We don't get any door knocking as we live in a quiet cul-de-sac with only one family with young children and I think they stayed in this year. 

I hope you all had a safe but fun Halloween with plenty of treats and no tricks.

The Halloween alphabet is good.

Lovely exchange, the alphabet is very sweet. I've stitched both of Mary's designs myself!
We never get trick or treaters here because we live at the end of a dark lane and our drive is very dark and Spooky too!
