Ghastlie Blog Hop Day #10

Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd. Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd. Harpier cries: 'tis time! 'tis time! Round about the caldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw. Toad, that under cold stone, Days and nights has thirty-one; Swelter'd venom sleeping got, Boil thou first i' the charmed pot! Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

Be sure to visit these Ghastlie Sisters today - our final day:

Mrs Nan Ghastlie

Mrs Gmama Jane Ghastlie

Mrs Joan Ghastlie

Mrs Nancy Ghastlie

Ms Susan Ghastlie

Madame Ghastlie

Fillet of a fenny snake, In the caldron boil and bake; Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

Be sure you leave a comment on each blog for a chance of one of the TWO Grand Prizes

Winners will be announced on Saturday.

Scale of dragon; tooth of wolf; Witches' mummy; maw and gulf Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark; Root of hemlock digg'd i the dark; Liver of blaspheming Jew; Gall of goat, and slips of yew Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse; Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips; Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab, Make the gruel thick and slab: Add thereto a tiger's chaudron, For the ingrediants of our caldron. Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

I hope you have enjoyed these 10 days of Ghastlie fun and inspiration and join us again next year.

Cool it with a baboon's blood, Then the charm is firm and good.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. OMG Ms Sharon Ghastlie if i didnt know any better i would have thought you were a witch,those spells sound so real,hahahahaah better keep on your good side.

  2. Spine-tingling poem and an appropriate ending for our hop. Its been fun, my Ghastlie Sistah!

  3. I love that scene from MacBeth! I was once one of the witches in a school talent show!
    Now I'm off to finish today, sadly the last day, of Ghastlie hopping.

  4. I've never played the part, but have often repeated those lines....gruesome! Just the right touch for ending the hop. But then I have always loved Shakespeare. LOL
    Hope your weekend is warm and pleasant.

  5. Scales of Dragon....grin....I read a book where these are fire proof. Maybe if I find a dragon, I can fire proof my house.
