First Friday Giveaway Day!

Hope everyone had a swell time trick-or-treating last night.  Ours was a success!  And by that I mean we went door to door begging for candy and got it :)  I had "Dark" Vader, Mario and a monkey in my group :)  Halloween was always one of my favorites growing up but nothing can beat Christmas, sorry :)

After receiving awesome feedback from you (thanks!) and our sponsors we've decided to have monthly giveaways!  The first Friday of the month we will have multiple giveaways, and with few exceptions that will be it.  One comment and you're entered into all of them. So take a minute to read through the great shops, what they're giving away and a little about them.

Critter Patch Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway

HoneyBeGood is pleased to offer one 6-piece bundle in your choice of colorway - Sky, Autumn or Forest. 

Hedgehogs, rabbits, raccoons, foxes and more. Critter Patch, the latest organic quilter's cotton collection by Alyssa Thomas for Clothworks offers up a nice variety of scale, including three prints that can easily be used as blenders. The small oak leaf prints are on a mottled color background that almost shimmers. There's not a stark solid to be found here. The organic cotton coming from Clothworks is quickly becoming among our very favorite. The quality of the cotton and the printing, the supreme softness, and an attractive price point all combine to make Critter Patch a great value.

Gathered with family, cuddled the grandbaby while mom handed out candy. So fun! Thanks for sharing.

My daughter (almost 4) enjoyed being a lion--went to 3 houses in the pouring rain and that was enough! She gets one piece of candy per day.

Taryn said...

It was stormy here, so there wasn't much in the way of Halloween participation. We did eat some yummy burritos though!

Marjorie Nath said...

My Halloween was very quiet. Here in Mexico, at least in our town, they don't do trick or treating but they do celebrate the Day of the Dead.
Thank you and your great sponsors for the giveaways.

Unfortunately we live at the very end of a dead end street so we really don't get any kids but I buy a big bag a week before Halloween and the tween kids in the neighborhood usually come by & grab a hand full after school. So by Halloween it's usually gone.

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Awesome shops and what generous giveaways! This year my grandson was a ninja turtle and his folks, friends and I went around trick or treating. My grandson loved knocking on all the doors, hehe. It was a great night.

Thank you and all the wonderful Sponsors for super generous giveaways and a chance to win.


Mary said...

WOW what a giveaway!!! Thanks...
I do not celebrate Halloween.

supersara20 said...

My husband and I handed out candy on Halloween.

Thanks for the fun giveaway - we don't really do Halloween round here. Just had a nice night with the family.

Kate said...

Here in Australia Halloween is growing! I stayed home with plenty of lollies (candy) for the local children.


Patty D from NC said...

lovely bunch of shops - thanks for the chance to win. My girls are in high school and weren't interested in trick or treating. The weather was warm but we only got six trick or treaters. A lot of candy for us.

Anda W said...

I wore a horrible mask while giving out candy, was great to see the reactions from unsuspecting trick or treaters! awolk at rogers dot com

Lindsey said...

Are house is too far from the road for trick or treaters but close enough walking the dog wad impossible! So I had a quiet night with a hyper puppy.

Colleen said...

We handed out candy, but only had 9 kids! Trick or treating is not as popular as it used to be here (Calgary, Canada)

Kathy H said...

We had a great Halloween. Went to see our granddaughter dressed for her first Halloween. Then we went home to hand out candy to our neighborhood kids. It was fun to see how excited they all were to be dressed up.

Cecilia said...

Thanks for the great giveaway. We didn't participate in Halloween this year.

Shawna said...

Such a great giveaway! Two new stores for me, The Quilted Castle and Stitching Santuary, which I will be visiting after this. Halloween was quiet. Waited for my little nephew to come over and show hos costume and get candy. After I went to a friend's house to help pass out candy and some tv. Thank you again for a great giveaway.

We went to an event at the hospital and got some candy and played games. (littlesillysally at

I'm in!
My son had a Halloween party at school
We do not trick or treat here in Argentina but he had so much fun with his costume! :)

Sarah @ mila+cuatro said...

I'm in New Zealand and Halloween just isn't that much of a deal here - we didn't even have any trick or treaters knocking on our door! Fantastic prizes you've got lined up here, and great sponsors.

Martie said...

Love the giveaway items. I didn't do anything on Halloween!

jaragabrielle said...

Thank you so much for a great post and giveaway!
I actually didn't do anything for halloween :) Just another day to me.

Misty Bowie said...

I took a 5 year-old fireman trick or treating!

Kristina Grapes said...

My husband and I watched scary movies. It's our tradition!

Melissa at Missouri Mel said...

I can really use the billet doux fabric. I'm making a quilt for a gift using that collection.

Melissa at Missouri Mel said...

Sorry! I didn't answer your question. My husband and I went out to eat. Sadly, we don't get trick or treaters in our neighborhood. Keeping my fingers crossed for the billet doux!

Alexis said...

My husband and daughter took our daughter trick-or-treating. Because we live in a basement apt, we didn't have to worry about passing out candy. Silver lining to not owning our own home. :) Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

Ella and Nesta said...

We had fun dressing up and exchanging sweets between neighbours!

Connie said...

We stayed home and had candy duty trick or treaters in our little town.

Brandy Pettit said...

I don't know if I qualify, but I'm excited about this non the less. On Halloween my family (20 of us) went to the DARE Spaghetti Fundraiser dinner at the Elks Club, and we had a great time. I also handed out candy during our neighborhoods organized trick-or-treat. I'm looking forward to the Holiday Tutorial Series, so glad I happened across your blog!
