Trick or Treat Stitchery!

I finished a new piece today, one for me.
I needed something smaller for my wall rack and loved this design.
The design is by Primitive Blessings, which is my new favorite place to visit.
I don't like how the stain came out, it is way too dark, so I will spritz it down tomorrow and let some stain lighten and some will drip and give it a more aged appearance. I used dmc pearl cotton for the stitchery and dmc floss for the background stitching.
The blobs are stars that go in a swirl and then I added leaves to fill in the rest. I think I would like to do this one in wool applique with stitching in a larger version, it is a fun piece to do.
