Halloween Ornaments Project - November 2023

I enjoyed last year's 13x13 Halloween Ornaments project so much that I didn't want to give it up. Besides, I had so many more ornaments to make! So I'm committing to another year. 

The first project was from a Just Cross Stitch Halloween magazine from 2018. I tweaked the pattern, using beads I had (leftover from other Halloween projects!) and some Aida I ice dyed a while back. I took it along on our last vacation, and finished it before Halloween. And it's BEAUTIFUL, if I do say so myself.

However, I didn't really think about it when I changed the size of the Aida... tI thought the finished piece would be, I dunno, 3 inches or so? Nope. 

That's a "Tootsie Roll Midgee" -- one of my favorite Halloween candies -- a small candy that's just over an inch long. It was surprisingly difficult to stitch it all together, but so very worth it. 

Next month I'm going to revisit another old project -- one of the other "vintage" ornaments from that Bucilla felt-and-sequins kit. 

I'll be back on December 13 to share the finished ornament.
