Halloween Blog Hop 2020

Happy Halloween and Happy Fall from me and my Just Nan Owls!! Today I’m participating in Jo’s (of Serendipitous Stitching) Halloween Blog Hop! It’s a chance to Trick or Treat at the participating blogs. Your treat is some fall/Halloween stitching AND a letter. Collect all the letters and return to Jo’s to submit the secret message you discover!

This week I finished Oakley Owlet up into a little friend for Mr. Nutley Owl, who I stitched a couple years ago. Isn’t she cute?!

I didn’t want to put a hanger on her as pictured because she will sit on a shelf. I made the Happy Fall sign into a little flag which I can remove when it is not fall.

In Arizona, in the Phoenix area where I live, we have had a week of fall weather. Here, we can count on 90-100*F degree temps regularly until Halloween, but this year we got a respite from the heat a week early! It’s been in the 60s-70s! The kids claim they are freezing! 🙂 (our tender little Arizona babies!) We even had several cloudy days. It has been so nice, and I have actually felt like getting out some fall decor and drinking hot tea-unthinkable during “extended summer.” I’m hoping it will stay cool enough through the weekend. We are not going trick or treating this year, but we will play some Halloween games (bobbing for apples etc.), have a fun themed dinner (I never have time for fun holiday themed dinners usually because I am busy finishing costumes and carving pumpkins on Halloween) and make a fire to roast marshmallows. It will be different from the usual trick-or-treating but I’m looking forward to it. And then it is supposed to warm up again next week.

And now after I’ve blathered on, here is what you’ve come for, your Trick or Treat letter!

That’s right, letter C! Now, to collect your next letter, go to Grandma Cathy’s. Have a fun weekend!

  1. Aww… those owls are the cutest, Mary! I bet they were quite fiddly to work with, but they turned out great. Lucky you living where it’s warm all year. I do love our snow, though, as long as I can sit inside. For us, we are having a heat wave beginning on Wednesday–it will be in the 60s. Almost unheard of for November. Of course yesterday morning it was 27. Yes–tell your kids it could be worse 🙂 Have a great week!

  2. Thanks for taking part in the Hallowe’en Blog Hop this year. I adore your owls! I have only stitched the mice so far, maybe I should add the owls to my collection!
