Challenge #166 - BOO!!!

Ghoulies and Ghosties, Long Leggity Beasties, things that go Bump in the night...

Think Halloween, show us your ghost, goblins and ghouls. Your vampires, werewolves and zombies are all welcome here. The Bewitching Hour is close, so lets get into the 'spirit' of things and have some fun.

Jana here: I just knew I had the PERFECT project for this challenge. A cross stitch project in the form of a stitch along. (You know, where you are to stitch a certain amount along with everyone else and finish at the same time and then oooh and aaah over how well you've all done.) Well, it turns out that I miscalculated the time frame involved, so the piece is not quite done. There is one more week in the stitch along. SIGH. 

Anyhow, here's what I have done so far:

H is for Haunted House
A is for Apparition
L is for Lightening
L is for Lollipops
O is for Owls
W is for Witch

I'll get the 'EEN' on Monday. I'll post the finished piece on my blog when it's done. Hopefully not too much after the end of next week.

Now let's see what the other talented Poobah's have conjured up...

Electra   I have not participated in a stitch along.  I do not even know what a stitch along is.  One the other hand, I do know what ATC's are, and so that's what I made for Jana's Bootalicious theme this month.

I adore Halloween.  In fact, I hold my breath (figuratively speaking, of course) for months until we crawl closer to October.  If I held my breath REALLY, I would turn blue.  Or orange.  Or maybe I would be a real zombie.  Ahh, the places I could go.

Chat Noir here........and look at that Elextra, using my very favourite black cat!!   

We dont celebrate Halloween in Australia, except where there are lots of US expats in the street!!  But that doesn't stop the supermarkets filling the aisles with spiders and pumpkins and witches hats and broomsticks.  It always makes me think of Hocus Pocus, which is one of my very favourite movies, so here's my version from the lighter end of the dark side......

Rosemary here and I'm loving all the Poobah magic I'm seeing here.  My contribution to the things that go bump in the night is a little Halloween cross-stitch.  His name is Cinder and he a scaredy cat!   Love the retro feel of this pattern.  very easy to stitch up in just a couple of evenings.

Deena here: Time is flying by so fast that I can't even believe Hallowe'en is just around the corner!  I am making these little take out boxes for all the trick-or-treaters in the neighbourhood...I have about 198 more to go, but they will have to wait a bit to get finished...these two are just the prototypes...and then to fill them all up with candy...mmmm.

Now it's your turn to show off your creations.

You have until the end of Saturday 5 October to join in with your fabulous creation. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.

If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused.  
We look forward to visiting you! This is a Blog Hop!

My Lotería card was inspired by "El Día de los Muertos," which is not supposed to be spooky. However, it is a skull. Blessings!
