Tricks or Treats & Boo

I have been stitching a few Halloween ornaments. Wow! Looking at the picture that is a lot of purple. lol. I dyed a couple small pieces of fabric.
I basically wanted a purple to stitch Tricks or Treat by Val's Stuff. The design is in the new JCS Halloween Issue. I thought it was so cute and colorful. I used all the pretty Crescent Colors and stitched it up while I watched a movie.
I finished stitching it Sunday and had to wait til Tuesday to get the candy corn buttons. I couldn't find the right color ribbon at WalMart so I went to the new JoAnn's today and decide on lime green. I am not sure if I like it or not, it looked wacky (?) so I stuck some purple pins around the edge.

This was the first time I tried the ruched ribbon. It doesn't look very professional but, for the first attempt it will pass. Definitely wouldn't win any gold stars upon close inspection. lol.

I didn't know how to finish Boo as it was so small, it must have been 32 count fabric so I finished it into a small pillow ornament. I found a small candy button (tootsie roll?) to attach the polka dot ribbon hanger.

OMG.....I forgot the hanger on Tricks or Treat. Now I have to figure that one out.

I want to thank everyone for all the comments on my "Queen Bee" pillow. There is still time to enter the drawing. I am going to pick the winner this coming Friday. You can leave a comment on my previous post.
Good luck to everyone.
