OCTOBER - SO MUCH FUN IN STORE....


October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came
-The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper


For those of you that follow my blog know how much I LOVE Halloween and giveaways!!! So during the month of October I will be having a weekly giveaway. So you will need to stay tuned if you wanna play!!

The first giveaway will be for the new Blackbird Designs pattern "Midnight Watch" and of course all the threads and the fabric, too. The winner will get to choose what count of cloth they want and also if they want linen or aida. Sound fun????

Ok, now for the catch, you will need to leave a comment on this post for one entry and tell me what your favorite candy is or what you will be handing out this year for "Trick or Treat". If you are a follower and or sign up to be a follower you will get a second entry, but you will need to mention this in a second post telling me so. And if you would like a third entry, post this giveaway on your blog and let me know that you have done so in a third post. Sound easy enough?? Your entries can be placed until the end of day on October 7th, 2009. I will then post the lucky winner on October 8th, 2009.

It has been raining or hailing here all day and feels more like winter instead of fall. I have been very busy at work this week as I missed all of last week with this stupid flu that has started to go around. Not good!!! I would rather be at work anytime!!! So now I am playing catch up and it's going slow, which means I haven't been able to do any stitching recently. I have put my Sail Away on hold for a while. I just can't seem to work on something that is not fall or Halloween related during October. But, I will finish it soon, before end of year 2009, I promise all my sailor friends!! I have not jumped off the boat for long.

I have tried my hand at designing a Halloween pattern and I am needing to get it stitched quickly along with a crickety old skeleton. I love skeletons as long as they are in good taste and primitive looking. Maybe if I can pick up speed on my office work I can get home in time and hopefully have some energy left in me to pick up that needle and thread. Wish me luck! I look forward to your comments and good luck on the giveaway!! They will continue to get better!! Have a wonderful day in every way!

Oooh, fun giveaway! I love that BBD. The autumn picture you shared is soooooo pretty. I miss that big range of color that we used to get in Delaware. Here, the leaves change but not quite so dramatically.

Okay, favorite candy, hands down, is a big box of Good and Plenty. Hersheys makes it, they don't sell it here, so I get it in care packages from my mother. The kids here will be getting Cadbury chocolates in their Halloween bags this year.

Robin said...

I love all the fall colors and Halloween as well.
My favorite candy is Kitkat candy bars. We usually always give them out for Trick or Treat.

Deb said...

Sorry that you've been sick with the flu. You and I should have been complaining together the past week. What a fun giveaway!!! My favorite candy are the Mounds bars - could eat the whole package.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the great contest, I love this design. It was on my list to order when I go back to work. I have been out of work since 8/31/09 for shoulder surgery.
My favorite candy is red licorce and peanut m&ms. Pat

Deb said...

And you asked for a second post - I'm a follower too!!

Deb said...

Okay, and third post - I'm putting a link on my blog!! Hope you get a lot of stitching done now that you're feeling better.

Debbie said...

Just came across your blog, love it!!! Fall is my favorite time of year. I really love the colors.
My favorite candy, York Peppermint Candies, yummy. A close second, anything licorice.

I have fallen in love with BBD and this would be a great addition.

Thanks for a great contest.

Margaret said...

Oh what a lovely giveaway! I think my favorite candy is Snickers bars. :D Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and Peanut M&Ms are in there too though. BTW, for some reason, the followers thingie isn't working for me -- I wanted to check to see if I was a follower yet, but that whole area is blank. :(

Cathy B said...

Hi Jolene -- love that fall picture with all the beautiful colors. I think that is why I enjoy fall so much - the rich, warm hues of red, orange, and yellow.

Anyway -- you're giveaway is very tempting and I must join in the fun. My favorite type of candy bar hands down is a snickers bar; although there was a period of time when I would only eat dark chocolate milky ways!

Now go get that office work done so that you can stitch tonight!

Cari said...

What a wonderful giveaway! Jolene, you have such a generous heart!

Favorite candy... anything with the combination of peanut butter and chocolate - I also love specialty chocolates.

What is your favorite candy?

Cari said...

Second post - I am a follower.

Btw, I love your holiday header - and your fall picture is amazing - is this somewhere you go camping or close to home?

Enjoy your day! I hope you have lots of extra time and energy to work on your new design.

Catherine G. said...

How exciting! Two of my favorite topics - candy and stitching - not to mention that I love BBD!!! I am really a lover of all things sweet, but we always give out chocolate bars at Halloween!

Catherine G. said...

Okay, I am all signed up as a follower now, so here is my second entry! I guess if I want the third, I'll have to think about starting a blog. Good luck to everyone!

Kathy said...

Oh what a fantastic giveaway! I love this pattern too. :)

As for my favorite candy at Halloween, (or anytime. LOL) AND it is what I giveaway to the treaters, is small reese's peanut butter cups AND york peppermint patties. Of course I always hope that there aren't that many who come to the door. Leaves more for me. LOL

Please enter me in your giveaway.

Tracey said...

OOOH! I saw this yesterday and wrote it down to be added to my wish list. I LOVE it. My favorite candy at this time of year is Brach's Autumn Mix. Not handing out any candy this year as we don't get many trick-or-treaters in our block, and we will be taking our kids out trick-or treating!

Tracey said...

Oh and I am a follower too! Off to post this on my blog. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Kat said...

What a nice giveaway! My favorite candy is sweet tarts, but they usually don't make halloween shapes - so we give out mini kit kats every year!

Kat said...

I am also a follower for a second chance. Thanks!

Alf N Stitches said...

Wow, please sign me up! My favorite candy is Turtles. I will be handing out Hershey mixed candies and Reese P/B cups. This is one of my favorite holidays!

That new Blackbird design is so cute! My favorite candy is M&M's and I will probably be passing out some on Halloween. Thanks for the giveaway.

Cari said...

Jolene - you are way too kind for this give away! Too much fun girlfriend. Love your new blog header!! HUGS and I'm glad you're feeling better.

Cari said...

Hey girl -- I've followed your blog for awhile now but I guess I never 'officially' signed up to follow your blog. But I just did!! I think I forgot to tell you my favorite candy... Snickers!!

Cole said...

What a cute design, thank you for your generosity! My favorite candy are Rockets :)

Cole said...

I'm a follower too!

Cari said...

Just posted your give away info on my blog. Thanks for sharing. You're just the best!!

Robin said...

Thanks for a great contest. I love candy corn candies I have a pumpkin shaped dish on my desk and it it always full. mmmmmm.

Teresa S. said...

You have chosen my favorite design of all the new ones for your giveaway! Since Halloween is my birthday, I try to make it a little special. And since we live down a VERY long driveway, the little ones who make it here get full-size candy bars-usually Snickers (my downfall!)

Robin said...

I just signed up to be a follower of your blog I have been reading it for a while but didn't know how to do the follower thing until recently so now I'm in. :) thanks for the contest.

Terri(TerriBoog) said...

What a fun giveaway, Jolene! Love the pattern and hadn't seen it before. Thanks for sharing the beutiful fall poem and picture - it truly is a blessed season, isn't it.

Hard for me to choose a very favorite candy - but I love Snickers with Almonds and Almond Joy candy bars.

BTW - love your Halloween header!

Jan said...

OH what a lovely giveaway! You have such a good and generous heart, Jolene. Please count me in! Oh favorite candies, a tie here, York Peppermint Patties and Milky Ways!

Jan said...

Second posting, I am already a follower! How fun!

Jan said...

Third posting, I am heading off right now, to post a link to this wonderful contest on my blog! BTW, love your header picture!!

valerie said...

Jolene...what a fabulous giveaway you are hosting. I was drooling over Midnight Watch all day yesterday too! My favorite chocolate candy is Midnight Milky Ways and my favorite hard candys are Jolly Ranchers. Please enter me in your giveaway...I'd love the chance.

ALso...love your new Halloween header and the lovely Fall photo.

valerie said...

Just signed up to be a follower too!

Loraine said...

Oh my goodness Jolene! What a generous give away. I love this design. I made the quilt that matches this, and I think it's my best work ever!
Love to be included in the giveaway. Also, wanted to let you know that I understand about the Sail Away. I absolutely love Halloween, and the house is all black, orange and purple at the moment. I just can't seem to get myself in the mood to work on a "summer" project. I'll finish it before 2009 if you will. Maybe we can spur each other on between Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I'm working on needle cases today. Those are taking longer than I thought, so I will have yours to you really soon.
Have a great one!

Loraine said...

BTW already following your fabulous blog! Smiles.

Loraine said...

I'm going to attempt to post this on my blog. I'm a little illiterate on how to do that, so lets hope I can figure it out!

Deanna said...

ohhhh! My aunt is Carolyn and she directed me to your blog from her blog for this fun little give away... So here's my entry!

You're little stitch-up is beautiful! It's been a few years since I've laid my hands on some fun patterns, with small children and college and all...so this would be a fun way to get back into the swing of things!

I ♥ Mary Janes and Candy Corns. :) I'll be handing out bit-sized snickers here in Idaho. :)

~Deanna

Bronny said...

ooo...a competition! And for a halloween design...!!!
In Aust, there are very little trick or treat visitors on Halloween - this neighbourhood has only little babies in it and mine are too old to start thinking about doing it. However, I'm likely to have a party for the adults. I'll be serving shortbread 'finger' biscuits and any other foods I can re-name or twist slightly witchy.
I LOVE candy corn - hard to find here - but i've been blessed by stitchy friends in the past couple of years who have sent me packets - just to encourage the addiction!
Thank you for this chance
bronny

Sharlotte said...

Wow! What a great giveaway! That design caught my eye as soon as I seen it on the BBD blog. We will be handing out Kit Kat this year. It's a favorite nearly every year. Off for my second post!

Missy Ann said...

Great giveaway! I'm doing one on my blog too (later this month) Halloween lovers unite!!!

My favorite candy was always anything that wasn't chocolate. Never found a chocolate candy that I did like. Back in the day the big score was those tiny boxes of candy cigarettes.

Mos Los Vagabondos said...

What a generous and fun giveaway, thanks for entering me. My favorite candy is Almond Joys, yum!

Love love love halloween and the design you've chosen as the giveaway.

There havent been many kids in our neighborhood the last two years, Iget the biggest kick out of seeing the little ones all dressed up and some of the bigger ones too, I love when the parents dress up with the kids, as I did when mine were little....

I ALWAYS buy WAYYYY too much candy, and my big little gobblins manage to take care of it for me ;) We're partial to butterfingers, kit kats, and twix

~Karen

Kathy P - NY said...

What a great contest! OK, here's my first comment to tell you what my favorite candy is. I would say, at this moment (and it can change quite often) it would have to be peanut m&ms. But I will probably give out something like 3 Muskateers at Halloween so that I don't eat them all - although there are very few candies I wouldn't eat! Thanks for the chance!

Kathy P - NY said...

And now for my second post . . . I just signed up to become a follower of your blog so please enter me again! Thanks a lot!!

Stitch Wizard said...

What a wonderful idea for a drawing for all of us to enjoy here in the blogging world. I love the Fall best too and am so glad to see things cool down a bit in Texas. I see you are from Utah and I used to live in South Central Idaho about 10 years ago. I remember how cold October can be, especially at night. I only wish I had known about Shepherd's Bush in Ogden back then. I love candies called Smarties. I will be giving those out and eating my share of them too. I liked them as a child as well. Debby

Amy said...

My favorite candy at this time of the year is candy corn. I love Blackbird Designs and am stitching their Halloween stockings right now. Thanks for sponsoring such a nice giveaway!!

Theresa said...

Oh wow!!!! How fun!!!!! I'm definitely in!!
My favorite candy is Dove dark chocolate!!! Yummy!!!! Actually I can't resist any kind of dark chocolate, but Dove has a reasonable price so I can stock up on it!! :-)
Thank you for this fun giveaway!!

katica said...

Thank you for such a fantastic giveaway!
I actually have a couple of favourite candies... when I was little you used to be able to get those small individually wrapped little orange gumballs with pumpkin faces on them (orange flavoured gum of course) Those are my all time favourite and would love to be able to get some again, but sadly I think they went the way of the dodo bird.

Today I love the little mini packs of twizzlers and the little mini bars of wunderbar chocolates - yummy! and just the right size to satisfy a craving!

katica said...

My second post for being a follower, and thanks for the great giveaway again. I'm really enjoying reading your blog as well

Sandra said...

I would love to have a chance of winning the Blackbird Designs chart please. My favourite sweet at the moment is the new Caramel chunky Kit Kat.

Suzanne said...

Thank you for this great giveaway! I also love Halloween, but nobody celebrates it over here. My favourite candy would have to be anything sour. I love sour cherry and lemon and grapefruit drops especially, although both are very hard to find. Hope that they're not a reflection of my disposition.

Daniela said...

Hi Jolene, I love the little autumn poem you posted. I had to write it down immediately. Autumn is my absolute favorite time of the year.

So my favorite candy! Mmh, I would say ordinary Reese's Peanut Buttercups. Unfortunately they don't sell them in Finland, unless going to the very, very pricey American Candy/Food Store. But my aunt is going to New York once a year and always brings back a big bag of Reese's Cups.

Jackie said...

What a generous giveaway!

I love Reeses peanut butter cups. So I'm NOT giving those out this year. I have a bit of a sugar problem/addiction. We'll probably be the house giving out pretzels instead!

Marilyn said...

My favorite and what I'll be giving out are Almond Joy bars. Yummmmmmm!
Thanks!

Candy corn is my favourite -but I don't hand those all, those are my little treat to horde. Great contest :-D

What a lovely and generous giveaway! Since we moved here we don't get any trick-or-treaters. We live way off the road in the middle of the deep woods--nice with lots of deer and wild turkey, big trees. Beautiful this time of year. Back when the boys were tricksters and we lived on Army posts, I loaded up on candy corn (my favorite) since I'm allergic to chocolate (how sad).

Marta said...

Hi!

My favorite candy is Reese's peanut butter cups or Snickers...

Julie said...

Gorgeous autumn picture! That's probably the best thing about autumn, but I live in FL so we don't get great colors here when the leaves change.

As to the candy - well, I am not much of a chocolate fan, so Halloween candy isn't really my thing (however, I do enjoy the holiday itself). I much prefer rock candy or old fashioned candies that come out at Christmas time!

Julie

stitchenmylifeaway said...

Please sign me up for the give away. Candy corns are my very favorite candy for Halloween but we will give out mini-candy bars this year.

Holy cow! Great response Jolene. You're going to have to give me tips ;)

Well, I clicked on "Follow" today, so I am a new follower of your blog. As to the part of your blog asking what we will be passing out this year...since I live in a 55+ park there really are no children that come around. This means my light will be turned off. I think I need to dig my witch out of storage and hang her up though!

Julie said...

And of course I put a link up to your post on my blog!

Good luck everyone!!!

Well, I have just today found your blog. I tis wonderful. Imagine how exciting to see this give away! What an awesome one it is!!! I guess since I eat Hershey's chocolate with almonds when I eat candy, it would be safe to say it is my fave.

I love anything Halloween, and always have. My father did the the dry ice in the wash tub scene on the front lawn, and dressed up as a ghost and jumped off the roof( onto a mattress draped in black) to scare everyone out of their wits..... well, you see where and how it all got started. Love your little JCS owl and those scissors.

I am now following you on Bloglines!!!! THis is my second comment.

Ohhh we don't have a trick or treat overhere. But if we would I would give little colourfull candy in little bags I would make. I think I live in the wrong country LOL.
Thanks for the beautifull give away. Love that design from BBD.
The luck I have now we haven't got a trick or treat is that I can eat all the candy myself LOL.

Hello,

I am a lurker, but I do love your blog. Thank you for such a wonderful contest!

We live in an apartment with security, so no trick or treaters here. I do make a point of buying Indian Corn (note, please - NOT candy corn, the kind with the brown base only!) That is my favorite. Hopefully some day I'll have a lovely house from which to distribute treats, and I'll make a point of buying the *cool* candy for the little goblins.

Thanks for the entry. :)

What a great giveaway! I LOVE this design! I'm a sucker for anything with a cat in it, particularly black cats. Our first kitty, Violette, is solid black with beautiful gold eyes. DH and I share our home with 6 beautiful kitties; mostly all saved from the Humane Society.

As for my favorite candy...colored licorice. Generally we give out tootsie roll pops for Halloween treatsl.,

Thanks for the chance at this wonderful giveaway!

I love this chart. You are very kind to offer something each week of October. Halloween charts are so fun! I love Kit Kat bars and we always add them to our candy basket. My mom was thrilled when they started making them in white chocolate too. pjstitcher at mchsi dot com pj

Colleen said...

Great giveaway!! Love this chart, too :) I'm at the bottom of the heap and don't stand much of a chance but I've been away and I'm trying to catch-up on my blog reading. I'm a follower and love M&M's (Unfortunately...LOL)! This would be a great birthday gift (hint, hint...tee hee) which was yesterday.

I really like your blog. I just found it and would of coarse like to join the Halloween fun with the give-a-way. I have not seen this chart before put really like it. I am also going to do the other post chances. My favorite candy for the holiday is the little candy pumpkins, they are soooo cute but will have to hand out something else since they don't really work well for that purpose. Will probably be sugar babies.

Just found your blog. It is fantastic! What a great giveaway.I really love the fall season also and enjoy stitching with all the fall colors. I haven't seen the new BBD design but would love to be the winner.

Margaret said...

What an amazing give-away. Like you I'm a big Halloween fan. We always buy little chocolate bars to hand out to the trick or treaters. My personal favorite is the dark chocolate with coconut filling - 'Mounds'. I always buy extras of these since I can't resist having a few myself.
Please enter me for your give-away and thank you so much for having it.

JSWiggins said...

I just LOVE Halloween. The decorations, the children in costumes, the CANDY!!! Fall colors are my theme all year. The Golds and Orange hues, some yellow and green. Rust and terra cottas. Oh, the colors of my home. I love candy corn. It's a treat to have every year, and brings back fond childhood memories. I keep a variety of candies in my office for my staff to include nerds, and laffy taffy. I usually give out a variety of candy for the big night, including tootsie rolls, dum-dums, pixie sticks, and of course candy corn.

JSWiggins said...

Just subscribed to your blog. GREAT layout and I love the header.

Shelleen said...

My favorite candy is the small snickers bars. I don't hand out candy as I live in the country and we don't get Trick Or Treaters.

What a very generous giveaway! My all-time favorite candy is six-lets. They are very hard to find, which probably is a good thing--for me!

I would love to enter this giveaway as I have loved Halloween for a longtime. My favorite candy, believe it or not is those candy corns that you can really only get at this time of the year. However, I do not pass those out because, if I would bring them into the house I would eat them all before oct. 31. So, typically I pass out regular Hershey bars or plain m&m's - something that my boys love just incase there are any left over.

My favorite candy is one that is no longer made and that is Marathon Bars!! Cadbury makes a similar version but it's only found in specialty stores. Otherwise, I love a good old fashioned Hershey bar wtih almonds!

Susan said...
