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.

Weather made the trick-or treaters stay home, so we went to the bar in costume. Facepaint is a lot of fun. We should have more excuses to wear it the rest of the year.

Neha said...

Thank you so much for the giveaway! We spent our Halloween handing out candy to many little trick-o-treaters that live our neighborhood ~ so fun!!

Michele said...

Lots of lovely giveaway opportunities. Thank you for the chance to win.

Since I have 2 kidlets ages almost 5 and almost 7, we had to go out trick-or-treating. The rain wasn't great but it wasn't totally horrible either and the kids had a great time.

Laura said...

We visited a couple of neighbors and gave out candy to our 10ish trick-or-treaters. My boys are just 18 months, so they were adorable as Mario and Luigi. Thanks for the giveaways!

Allison said...

Our Halloween was a bust- not a single trick or treater :(. Anxiously awaiting next Halloween when it should be more fun since we will have a 6 month old!!!

Katie said...

My 2 year old did her first door to door trick or treating. She loved it and was amazed by all of the people that just handed her candy. She was such a proud little red crayon. Her brother (6 mo.) was not so impressed with his penguin costume. :)

Laura said...

I went trick or treating with my three year old granddaughter. She had a blast! I am sure she is wondering when she will get to do that again!

Pauline G said...

What great give away to start off
We watched a scary movie - Bag of Bones with Pierce. Bronsnan.

andri. said...

Thanks for the chance! My halloween was very boring...

Tracy said...

We handed out candy at our Church Trunk or Treat and had a blast with a great turn out! Some new shops to check out, thanks!

Michelle said...

Such great giveaways! Stayed home last night and handed out candy-luckily it stopped raining for part of the evening.

sarahquilts.com said...

Handed out candy to wet trick-or-treaters. Have lots of leftovers this year due to the weather!

Teje Karjalainen said...

Hi Megan and Heather! Fantastic give away - thank you! We don't have Halloween here, so it was a normal evening without any excitment. x Teje

Stacey said...

I took the kids out but had to come home early. My little guy wasn't feeling too good and just wanted to go home......poor little guy!!! My daughter got to tear up the town with a few friends.

Catrin Lewis said...

As Halloween isn't as big here in Wales as it is in the US we only went to the houses in our estate where we knew there were other trick or treaters - so that was the houses total!

Courtneysews said...

We went trick-or-treating and had a great time. My poor 7 year old son got the scare of his life at one house when a tricky masked teenager came running out of a hidden door just as he was stepping away from the path to the doorway. The fear knocked him off his feet. LOL! Thanks for the great give-away!

BobbiG said...

Upstairs hand quilting while my husband handed out candy. Kind of scroogish!

Lisa Marie said...

I don't have any young ones to take trick-or-treating and my house is too far from other houses for the kids to bother with. So I spend an un-scary evening quilting! Works for me.

Gill said...

I handed out treats!!

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

Had a fairly quiet night handing out a few bags of candy. There were definitely more little treaters than usual.

marilyn emmons said...

Our town has 2 trick or treat nights! We had 168 little "monsters" the firstnight alone! I would love a treat too!

CountryBelle said...

My Storm Trooper, Gorilla, White Queen (from Alice in WOnderland), husband and I piled into the car and travelled the countryside collecting candy and visiting the neighbors ;)
But I ALWAYS leave a bowl of candy at our front door for the kiddos that stop by our house when we're gone!

del said...

I handed out candy, as I do every year. I love seeing the kids dressed in costumes.

Karen said...

Thanks for the giveaway ladies! Trick or Treat was a blast -- with 3 of the 8 grandkids ages 3 to 15! We ate pizza, candy, donuts and went trick or treating in the neighborhood. Good family time. Have a wonderful day!

Adele said...

Love the one entry for all idea! No Halloween here-weather was terrible.

Andrea H. said...

My kiddos enjoyed giving out candy as much as they did visiting other houses. My son was Percy Jackson and my daughter was American Girl Felicity. Lots of fun! Thanks for the opportunity!

Kathy C said...

I live out in the country so no trick-or-treaters. I went to bed early since I was up late the night before watching the Red Sox game! kcannon@anwsu.org

Char said...

I live on a huge street where we have never had any trick or treaters. My DD is 21 although she did go out trick or treating with her college friends. I stayed in and watched TV.

Barbe said...

had a fun night, dressed up as a fairy and handed out candy, halloween isn't just for kids. lol

Catherine said...

I went trick or treating with my boys ... in the rain ... for 2 1/2 hours!

It was a lot of fun, though. :)

Alex said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I was the candy distributor last evening, lots of cute littles including my own elephant and wolverine!

Heidi said...

We took our 2 1/2 year old and 6 month old trick or treating at the local armory and to a few neighbors. It was cold and drizzling so we didn't stay out too long!

Kay said...

We had a 2 hour parent evening at school seeing all the subject teachers for my teenage daughter! We did have time to see a few people at our door once we got home though. Thanks for great giveaways.

Teresa Stanulis said...

We stayed home and handed out candy. We only had a few this year so we have lots of candy leftover!

Jenniffier Kramer said...

My Halloween was quiet. My dog had to have surgery so we keep the house quite and dark for him. Although I don't think it would have mattered because the streets were empty.

thriftstorecrafter.com said...

It was dinner and an old Vincent Price movie for me. thriftstorecrafter at yahoo.com

Amy Verne said...

Thanks for entering me in the giveaways. My husband and I gave out candy while our youngest (12 years old) trick or treated with friends.

Kim said...

We took our kids trick-or-treating. It was a wonderful night.

Lori said...

I gave out candy. I love to see the costumes! Thanks for a chance to win

Southern Gal said...

We enjoyed the evening as a family with a great meal and good company.

Linda said...

HELLO,WE HAD SNICKERS FOR OUR LITTLE TRICKERS! THANKS FOR SHARING A GREAT GIVEAWAY!

momof3 said...

Weather here in CO was good so we had a ton of kids come by. It is fun to see all the costumes. I love Connecting Threads new lines and would love to get a FQ bundle!

Gnomemade said...

We had a great Halloween! This was our first one in a home where we get trick-or-treaters. It was great to see all the creative costumes.

Shanners said...

For Halloween, we stayed home curled up on the couch watching The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and other awesome Halloween movies.

Lisa said...

We actually stayed in last night and admired all our friends through facebook who have grandchildren or children. It was a very relaxing evening!

Laurel09 said...

Trick-or-treating was delayed until tonight because of bad weather, so last night ended up being just a normal night, with our Halloween activities put off until today. Thank you for the chance to win one of these amazing giveaways!

Lindsay Rodems said...

This year was the first year trick or treating with one of my 2 year old. The pouring rain did not slow her down one bit!

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

I actually went to a Christmas Fayre last night - I do love halloween but Christmas shopping with free wine won!!!

memmens said...

What a wonderful giveaway, thanks for the chance. I spent Hallowen at my sewing machine piecing a quilt back! That is my idea of fun!

Allison C said...

We handed out candy, but didn't have many kids stop by. Now we are stuck with all this candy. Temptation is so evil...

needle and nest said...

I love your new giveaway format! As to Halloween, we took our wee ones trick-or-treating. We also had a monkey with us, along with a skeleton and Peter Pan. :)

LynCC said...

What a great giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity. Our teen did not want to go out and about this year, so we stayed home (only had 2 groups of Trick-or-Treaters - sad!) - and watched "The Raven" and "Interview with a Vampire."

Andy said...

I was on candy duty last night while everyone else went out trick or treating. It's fine with me though, because I like to see all of the neighborhood kids come by!

Katelyn Vawter said...

My Halloween night was a very calm one. The weather kept many trick-or-treaters from going door to door. None of my Nieces or nephews live near me so I handed out LARGE handfuls of candy to the kids braving the chance of rain (it had been raining all day...seemed to stop just in time, but the sky still seemed pretty threatening). It was a fun and relaxed halloween night! Thanks for the chance at one of these awesome giveaways!

claudia said...

I got to spend my Halloween in bed sleeping. All my work at work and home just caught up with me and I needed SLEEP! My ninety one year old dad assumed he was going to be answering the door and I made sure he had plenty of goodies for the goblins and such, but alas! No one came to the door. I think everyone is thinking safer Halloween activities and having private parties.
Thank you for an opportunity to win goodies. You and your sponsors are always so generous!

Jenny said...

oh my goodness! we had an epic puking incident before we even left the house! im so glad my daughter's timing allowed that nasty trick to happen at home and not someone's doorstep! regardless, she went out, for 10 minutes...dad took her home...and 20 minutes after that...my son and i got rained out. lots of rain...but we still got enough candy to bring smiles to the kids...we snuggled on the couch and watched Mariposa before bed. gonna check out some of these shops now...im stuck at work until 5pm but my boss is out of the office!

Sue H said...

Gave out a lot of candy!!

Netta said...

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

Sarah Craig said...

Our Halloween was very quiet, except for the wind howling around the windows! Bad weather had most cities in our area postponing Halloween festivities until tonight. We still won't have folks come here - our house is deep in the woods off the street, and I guess it's too creepy in the dark!! Can't wait to see my granddaughters all dressed up as Merida (from Brave) and her little brother bear, though! thanks for the chance to win!!

Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] said...

Nothing special here... My six month old was dressed up all day but we're in the country so we didn't have to hand out candy!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

My Halloween evening was spent with three lovely young ladies who made me laugh, cry and just remember the wonder of being young. It was a most delightful evening.

Madeleine said...

We went over to my aunt's house and watched Monster's University. It was fun!

Ali said...

Halloween isn't such a big thing here but my younger son (10) did go to a party dressed as a vampire.

diane said...

We took our little kids out trick or treating, while our older girls stayed home and gave out candy. My 16-year-old went to a party and watched 'When a Stranger Calls' and had to sleep upstairs on the couch because she was so freaked out! Ha!

wintunancy said...

No kids in our neighborhood to go door to door. We took an elderly friend to dinner. I usually hate to go anywhere Halloween night, don't want to be out driving with all the kids out. Thanks for chances at some great things.

shawn said...

I went with my daughter and granddaughter tick or treating but it was raining on and off but she still received a good bit of candy. Thanks for the giveaways.

Sharon Nez said...

I went out with the kids and met up with some friends as we walked the neighbor hoods so the kids could trick-or-treat!
It was such a blast, and we all had a lot of fun.

barbara woods said...

we are great grand parents and the weather keep our great grands away, thanks for the giveaway

Josie McRazie said...

My man, me, and zombies! No really it was our night to watch this weeks episode of Walking Dead!

Mrs.Pickles said...

Thank you for the chance to win. I handed out candy to the one trick or treater we got

dornydorndorn said...

Wonderful giveaways! I think I saw one family in costume & that was it.

Jessica said...

I gave out candy with family and some friends... and ate a nice dinner together, too :)

Pinspot said...

Hubby and I switched off taking our girls out, and passing out candy. We had way less kids at our door than I expected. Tons leftover! Luckily I bought can't I don't like!

Ella said...

I had a nary a trick or treater, so I ate lots of Reese's and napped out with the dog.

Susanne said...

I cuddled up at home and handed out LOTS of candy :)

Nicole Hannah said...

Best Hallowe'en ever! Potluck dinner party with neighbours, then husband did group trick or treating with our 6 year old and gang of her friends. I took the toddler home and handed out candy.

The kids I saw had great costumes and were super polite, so that made it pleasant all around.

Kim M said...

What an awesome giveaway! I passed out candy to the cute little trick-or-treaters last night (although we had fewer kids come by than last year). I also made chili for our football tailgate this weekend!

JoyceLM said...

Great giveaway. I celebrated Halloween by watching Project Runway All Stars - their creations this week were pretty scarey. Thanks.

Tina Short said...

I stayed home and handed out candy as my kiddos are in their 30's and are no longer at home.

barbara woods said...

i ate candy because it was raining and no one came, thanks for the great giveaways

Funky Kim said...

Halloween was kids at the door and a quickly made light saber out of a flashlight and freezer paper.

Happy November!

Emily C said...

I handed out candy to lots of little ghouls, batmen, ironmen, and princesses.

Lauren Deel said...

What great giveaways! Last night, our family actually celebrated "Reformation Day" - the anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the church door on Oct. 31, 1517. Definitely a "nerdy" holiday, but we dressed up, went to a party, played games and won plenty of candy. :)

Aimee said...

We took our daughter out trick or treating. It was super windy & very rainy, but she had a marvelous time.

Mom C said...

I went to the trunk and treat at our church. I wrapped leftover strips from a strip quilt I had made, added my machine cover as an apron and went as a quilt. The grownups got it, the kids, not so much. But then I get confused with all the female Disney characters. Then my grandson asked if I knew what he was. After informing me he was Bumblebee he asked if he was the old one or the new one!!!???!!! I said old, I was wrong! Of course.
After that quick, intense candy disposal, I went home, answered the door to a few more until the grandkids came over. Once they left, we turned out all the lights and went to bed. On to Thanksgiving and the holiday season!

Kacey said...

Our Halloween got rained out, so we're expecting trick-or-treaters tonight!

Polly @ Pieces by Polly said...

We had a great Halloween. It was pretty epic...we were all different characters from Harry Potter...and it was a lot of fun making the costumes, but I'm also glad it's over. Thanks for all the awesome giveaways!

Chiska said...

It was so cold my kids said, "We don't want to go trick-or-treating." So after a quick candy gather at a group gathering we came home and watched very unhalloween movies. It was fun though.

Laura B said...

I will have to try these new shops.

Bridget B said...

had our candy ready but only a few showed up. Too many other things happening. Really do enjoy seeing the little kiddos in their costumes.

laurie said...

We went trick-or-treating in our neighborhood with our 2 youngest. So nice to see neighbors out and about. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Esther F. said...

Nothing much, LOL! We do not celebrate Halloween much here! I had to grade some tests and work on a thread experiment on the sewing machine... Not so fun and more fun!

tpott said...

I LOVE Halloween! We stayed home to hand out popcorn to the trick or treaters. Unfortunately it drizzled on and off so it was a slow Halloween night. Only, maybe 50 kids came by. I hope next year is better, I missed the costumes the crowds of little kids in the street and all the happy faces. Hope you all had a great Halloween! ;-> Toni Anne

Emmacathryn said...

Halloween isn't very big here in Australia, but we did get a few trick or treaters, and they were surprisingly polite teenage boys!! Thanks for the giveaway.

pkmegs said...

Went trick or treating with the 2 boys in the rain and got soaked, at least it wasn't cold and the boys had fun.

Joan said...

I helped give out candy and had a lovely Halloween with my three little granddaughters.

Jackie T said...

I handed out candy and worked on an apron I am making. We live out on a dairy farm, so we don't get very many children. Thank you for such a nice assortment of giveaways!

Niki said...

We had a horribly rainy trick or treating experience but had a blast anyway! My kids were Jake and Izzy from the Never Land Pirates.

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

Our biggest group of trick or treaters arrived on a flat bed trailer pulled by a tractor which promptly stalled in our driveway (we live at the end of a longish road). LOL! After a 15 minute plug in to our battery charger they were back on their happy way.

Lynne Tilley said...

We had perfect cool fall weather for Halloween. I handed out candy to the cutest little people for 2-½ hours. I just love that! My granddaughters were 6 hours away, and I got photos of them later from my daughter, so that was fun. Thanks for the giveaways! Awesome! Great websites, too.

Jen said...

Thanks for the great giveaways!

Joyce said...

Awesome giveaway....I passed out candy to 20 cute little trick-or-treaters and 5 who were not so cute and looked to be college age...go figure. All in all a nice, but rainy night.

Barbara said...

We had fun going door-to-door trick or treating. Halloween with a 5-year-old is the best!

Julie Thompson said...

We had Batgirl and Super Natalie, who looked an awful lot like Robin but didn't want to be her big sister's side kick :)

Christine @ sew bossi said...

It was the first time for my kids to celebrate Hallowe'en. They had so much fun!
Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Angela Bullard said...

We didn't end up doing anything Halloween night since my oldest fell asleep early and the other is too young to care but during the day we went to my little boy's school costume parade and carnival. It was wonderful to see him interacting with his "classmates" (he's just 20 months old)!

Thanks so much to you and the sponsors for such generous giveaways!

Katie said...

Thank you for the chance to win! We had visits from the tooth fairy, batman, and a cute puppy!

Cheryl said...

Stayed in and listened to the wind howl! Thanks for all the chances to win.

Allison said...

I handed out candy while my husband took our older kids or trick or treating... the baby stayed home with me.

oneenglishteacher said...

I was a bit of a halloween stick in the mud this year and didn't do anything personally, but I did love cruising my Facebook feed to see what all my friends dressed their kids as.

Rebecca said...

We went to a Harvestfest - a fundraiser for the boys and girls clubs at our church. Lots of games and candy for the kids, and socializing for the adults - it was fun!

Vicki Posten said...

I sewed for Halloween! These are all great giveaways! Thanks!

trudys_person said...

I had a lousy day at work and spent the evening feeling sorry for myself ... I'm feeling better now!

Cherie said...

Halloween was fun! I went to my friends house and helped her pass out candy with her little 4 month old baby while her husband took her 3 year old around the neighborhood. The weather was great, and we had a blast! Next year I will have my own little one, so I enjoyed seeing all the babies going around!

Mom2RyandSis said...

We had a wonderful but wet time!! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

Jody Polen said...

Wow! What awesome giveaways!

Jody Polen said...

Wow! What awesome giveaways!

Michele T said...

I handed out goody bags to 12 trick or treater's... We doubled the number from last year!!! Isn't that incredible? My husband was way too optimistic and bought enough for 100 - I kif you not!!!

Beth said...

We live in the country, and our driveway is a quarter mile long, so we never get any trick-or-treaters. I miss life in the suburbs on Halloween--we were reminiscing about how our neighbors always brought their cute kids over to show us their costumes. Plus, no excuse for buying Halloween candy when we know we won't be giving any away!

Nikki said...

We were in Las Vegas for Halloween. Kid-friendly trip this time with 6 adults and 6 kids. Thanks for the great giveaways - exciting!

Jenn said...

My daughter says 'dark' vader too, or "black" vader. We went to our church's trunk or treat, which was great! Thanks for the giveaway(s).

Tricks-ur-treating went very well, a little soggy here in the Midwest but we like to say "Whatever it takes to get the candy" right?? A good time was had by all! as I sit here finishing my 6th peanut butter cup ; ) Ahhh life is good!

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

Our neighborhood has no small children, so sadly no little trick-or-treaters visiting. I spent the evening working on a few quilt projects. Thanks for the sweet giveaways :)

ljeanne said...

We were able to see one grandson in his gorilla costume. The other grandson lives 2000 miles away and we had to settle on a picture of him as a nice skeleton.

Barbara O. said...

What an awesome giveaway, thanks for the chance!
My Halloween was rather quiet, I was out on the countryside with my kids during the day, so they were so completely worn out in the evening that they fell asleep round 7 p.m., no tricking nor treating then. Next year again!

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

We had a fabulous playgroup Halloween party where most of the kids were only just old enough this year to understand what was going on - so cute!

Angelia Lanouette said...

We handed out candy to trick or treaters. After about 120 kiddos we ran out of candy so we turned out the lights and watched scary movies. Thank you for sharing and the generous giveaways!

Dyann Cox said...

We went to see our Grandson in his costume, hung out for a bit and watched the trick-or-treaters come by and then we headed home. Thank you for the great giveaway :)

Rebecca said...

We stayed at home and handed out Annie's Bunnies and pencils. Not nearly as many children came as we used to get :(

Judy Johnson said...

Grandma got to hand out candy while Grandpa and Dad took Dracula and Spiderman Trick or Treating. The littles ones are the cutest. One wee guy who called out 'Twick or Tweet" just couldn't wait and dug into his bag to see what had been added. It was a hit - 'Look Daddy. I got candy!' So precious.

Kathy said...

The numbers have dwindled on the trick or treaters, only 40! In years past we had upwards of 200. Halloween has changed, kind of sad!

Francis Paul said...

we don't celebrate Halloween here in the Netherlands, so no trick or treat for the kids here .... :-(

Rachelle said...

No Halloween here in New Zealand

Catherine said...

My youngest daughter turned 17 on Halloween, so we were out for something to eat. Trick or treat isn't as popular here in the UK

Julie said...

We don't get kids anymore (all grown up in our neighborhood) but we still love Halloween. We watched the first 3 "Halloween" movies and will watch the rest this weekend.

Linda Nelson said...

Watched The Exorcist after handing out candy!

Janice Stockwell said...

I was all set with a big bowl of candy and not one Trick or Treater showed up at my door! I must be scary!!!
Now I guess I'll have to eat all those candy bars myself!

ELNM said...

Our 14 year old and her friends went trick-or-treating, but it was rainy and windy - not the greatest of nights. But when you put 9 friends together it only means fun! Many thanks to you and your sponsors!

I flew to Florida this Halloween - I missed the festivities, but I got to join my hubs in FL, so it was a good Halloween, anyway. :)

CherriBeri said...

No tricker treaters this year :-( So I sewed!

Gunilla said...

For me watching a scary movie is great halloween fun! Usually a lot of scary cute kids also turn up, and of course the'll get a treat!

Dianne W said...

Nothing remotely Halloween here I'm afraid, since I had to finish a quilt for my Sister-In-Law's 50th birthday.

Been there, done that said...

We gave out over 200 little bags of candy in less than 2 hours. There was even a hayride in our neighborhood. Aww…the advantages of living in Florida. My 18 month old red haired grand daughter was dressed as Pebbles from the Flintstones, and my 8 year old grandson was dressed as one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I couldn't ask for a better Halloween.

Thanks to you an your sponsors for the wonderful give away! I have a cold so I spent it hiding inside (especially since it was cold and rainy around here) and sewing on my many WIP's.

Great giveaways! I'd never heard of HoneyBeGood before. We went trick-or-treating in the rain and to a parade. Not the best weather, but we got out!

Eileen DiPietro said...

Another great Halloween, did a little of both handing out candy and walking the neighborhood with the kids Traditional chicken parm dinner at my house afterwards. Great night with family and friends. Thanks for the chance.

We had a drizzly night, so many of our Trick-or-Treaters stayed home, but we did get a few die-hards! Unfortunately, this left us with too many leftover treats in the house!!! Thanks for the great giveaway chance!

Karen said...

We only had 9 trick or treaters. The weather was terrible here. I ended up having time to quilt. All the giveaways are wonderful. It feels like Christmas!

KatieQ said...

I live just slightly left of the middle of nowhere so we didn't get very many trick or treaters. Unfortunately, that left us with too much candy for chubby old people to deal with. I've got to swear off Kit Kats for breakfast.
I've purchased from Southern Fabrics and Connecting Threads many times, but was delighted to discover the great fabric selections at The Quilted Castle and Honey Be Good.

We live in a neighborhood where all of the kids have grown up. So we went out to dinner with my sister-in-law and had sushi.

I took my oldest daughter and her friend trick or treating. Fan4may at aol dot com

no kids in the area, so we drove around and looked at all the decorations

Barb said...

Very low key Halloween here. This year we moved to the country and there are no little ones even living nearby. Very sad. Very, very sad. Next year I'll have to think of some way to get to see those little cuties all dressed up. Hmmmm.....

Leanne said...

Lovely giveaways. I spent Halloween finishing a quilting challenge that was due the next morning. We had a windy night and are off the easy track so not even many kids at our door.

dessie95 said...

Very quiet at our house until our grandbaby came by dressed as a dragon He was so cute !!!!

Kristen said...

We went trick-or-treating with our little Dorothy, Spiderman, and princess.

Michelle Bartholomew said...

We took my friend's daughter trick or treating around downtown. Her bucket was so heavy by the end she couldn't carry it. I snuck a few pieces to lighten her load :) mls.bartholomew [at] gmail

We had a blast!! The weather was wonderful and the kids were well! We all spent the week before sick so we were all so thankful just to feel like ourselves again! The kids got so much candy which is a good thing to them! I wish we could start trick or treating a little earlier because it stinks that the kids go out and get all this candy and then it's time to go home to get ready for bed because of school the next day but ok guess that's just the name of the game!
Thank you for the chance at your giveaways, Jessica

Rosemary said...

I've noticed that fewer and fewer trick or treaters are coming around these days. I ALWAYS have to have some treats for them just in case. We had more this year and it's always fun to see the great ideas that they come with to "scare" us. Great giveaway and thanks for sharing.

Jodie said...

We took the kids trick-or-treating with a little friend, a tiny, adorable superhero!

Beth said...

I passed out candy while my daughter took the boys trick or treating. It was a warm evening so everyone was outside and the whole neighborhood was having a party! Fun times!

Bethany Martini said...

Since I am in college, there was a lot of costume parties, none of which I attended. Instead, my roommate and I decided to watch the Charlie Brown Halloween movie!

Miss Nancy said...

We went to dinner at a local restaurant. They had a Halloween special. Very tasty meal. Thank you for this super great giveaway.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

Vicki H said...

I was at home to pass out candy to the spooks. The few we had had great costumes.

Mrs.Hearts said...

We stayed home, and the kids shared a bag of candy. We had the big ZERO trick or treaters as usual in our rural area.

Tara Kulla said...

My family doesn't trick or treat so we were just at home hanging out:)

Gayle Himmelwright said...

We took our three kids out with their three older cousins and their neighbors. We always have a great time with them! Thanks for the giveaway!

Krista Foley said...

Awesome giveaways!
Halloween was uneventful. We had bad weather, so the kids Beggar's night got moved to an indoor location. So we had no one come by. :(

Miggsie said...

Great giveaways - thanks so much! We went out trick-or-treating with our kiddo in warm, dry weather, which is a real treat here in Seattle this time of year!

Catskill Quilter said...

Great giveaway! We have had the outside decorated for a month (lit up with orange lights every night!) and we were ready with treats - but sadly, no trick or treaters this year!

mindingmomma said...

We went out in the rain with a friends' family. Gathered plenty of candy, and shared some fellowship over cake and cider.

Jane S. said...

As is always the case, we had no trick-or-treaters at all! We live in a remote area so there is just a Halloween party at the Grange Hall. We've been here for 22 years now and nary a trick-or-treater have we seen. :)

Rebeckah Austin said...

Well, I thought I had a class to teach so I had my hubby drop me off at Joann's. After an hour of shopping (killing time till class started) I go to the computer to sign and print the class papers it showed the class canceled... :( So I had to wait till 7:30 for my hubby to get out of his class to pick me up and take me home. I killed time at Stbx knitting a sweater (NEVER leave home with out a project!) Then we went home and watched The Voice we recorded. Pretty tame night.

terri h said...

Rainy halloween, so not too many trick-or-treaters. Thanks for the chance to win!

Kelly Leroux said...

Our trick or treat night was wednesday, so we missed the rain (but not the cold!). I handed out candy while hubby took the kids around the neighborhood - Dorothy and the Not-so-cowardly Lion.

Becky Butler said...

I took my kids to a Halloween party, they loved it! I on the other hand could've done with ear plugs...

Jen said...

We didn't do anything for Halloween this year (no kids). But we had a potluck at my work and our whole team dressed up as cowboys/girls, so that was fun!

tracy_a said...

Halloween with kids is so fun - even though it rained, we all trick-or-treated (we don't get many trick or treaters at our house on a big road). What a great giveaway - thanks to your sponsors!

Sadly, I spent this Halloween helping my father get settled into a nursing home :(

Debra Kay Neiman said...

Love all the lovely prizes. Halloween we watched DVD BBC Sherlock and I followed my family and friends children on Facebook with lots of pics of their costumes. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

Tammie B said...

I took a pirate, kitty and owl trick or treating!

bestjlb said...

My husband and I took our young Batman trick-or-treating. It was lots of fun. Thanks for so many great giveaways!

PK Sews said...

Oh wow - it was so much fun visiting your wonderful sponsors. Lots of eye candy - especially billet doux! Thank you! I dressed as a raven for work and then came home and took a little turkey trick-or-treating. Then we came home and over-indulged a bit on chocolate. Thanks for the fun question and for your inspiring blog.

Melissa said...

We stayed home and passed out candy as usual. It is fun seeing all the littles in their cute costumes!

watched King's Faith on Thursday night.

Cindy said...

We handed out candy at home, but didn't have a lot of trick or treaters.

Virginia said...

We handed out candy. My kids are too old and too cool for trick-or-treating anymore, so they ate more than they gave out!

Kathleen Lambert said...

Fabulous give away. Love all the products offered. Was at work, but seeing how I work in an Outlet where the kids trick or treat from 5pm to 7pm, handed out candy to about 800 kids. It was so fun seeing all the little kids costumes.

Mhairi said...

(mumbled into chest) We don't do Halloween!
But I did go shopping for Lego Advent calendars and other Christmas presents.

Debbie said...

Great bunch of shops! For us it was just an ordinary day. Halloween is not celebrated here!

LivinH20 said...

Thanks for sharing links for the quilt & fabric shops. I do not participate in Halloween. It was an ordinary work day.
