Sweet and Scary Halloween

This is one of my favorite pieces. It is stitched on Dense Fog Jobelan by Wichelt, and has tiny Mill Hill beads for sprinkles. The pattern is in the 2018 Special Halloween Edition of Just Cross Stitch. I painted a wooden fence I got at Hobby Lobby black and edged it with trim, and found that fat pumpkin bead in my endless box of stuff.

The inspiration: I like making cupcakes so much I have my own portable cupcake station, complete with two shelves of sprinkles in my kitchen. I also like designing cross stitched cupcakes. To see some of my real life cupcakes and get recipe ideas, check out my Sweets category on Pinterest.
