Pumpkin Stitches

It's finished, and I'm so happy! When I saw this pattern, I knew I had just the place. My bathroom needed more orange. Now most people wouldn't put orange and turquoise together, but considering the season, I just went with it. In all honesty, I think it's garish and would never recommend these colors being paired.
As you can see, I had a big ol empty spot.
If you want the pattern, I found it in this magazine. There are many other wonderful things in this mag to make. And they even have patterns on-line too.
I just had to show you this. A couple of years ago I got tired of this candelabra. So Hubby took it to the garage. Over the course of a year, it was filled with cobwebs. So last year we of course used it as a decoration. After that, it was again exiled to the garage. This year it has an even spookier look from the candles melting from the heat.
It's really hard for me not to clean it! I have almost picked it up to dust several times! I do think it looks great, I just don't want people to think I'm a bad house cleaner. What's even sillier is that I wiped down the real cobwebs, to hang fake cobwebs, can you see them behind the candles?
Today I have more pumpkin fun planned. Stay tuned for tomorrow...
Take care, Brandie

The crosstitch is beautiful! I love anything with pumpkins. Also thanks for the magazine's name - I am looking it up now. Love the candle holder decoration too.
