Got Candy?

I finished this piece that I wrote about here.  I adore this super cute candy corn witch!  Just look at her killer boots and her awesome candy corn dress and hat...I mean really, what's not to love?

Right now she's in a hoop.  Eventually I would like to make this a pillow using the candy corn fabric as a border.  I think that would be cute but it involves dragging out the sewing machine which hasn't seen the light of day since the baby was born so we'll see.  For now, the hoop is just fine...maybe painted black?  Hmmm....anyway, here are some detail photos.

I stitched this on aida that I've had forever, most likely thrifted.  It's a mint green, 14 count fabric.  The pattern is from this years Halloween edition of Just Cross Stitch.  The only thing I did differently was I didn't use metallic for the purple.  I just used a regular bright, purple because I just didn't want to fight the metallic thread.  I think it's looks just fine. 

I am so ready for Halloween this year.  I can't wait to go trick-or-treating with my bebe and decorate the apartment.  

Now I'm moving on to a small piece for a gift and another Halloween piece that I'm really excited about! 

'Til then!
