Colleen's January - Pumpkin & A Crow

I'm Colleen and I live in Southwest Florida a/k/a The Sunshine State. I've been stitching forever and a day, or so it seems. With all those years of stitching, you would think I'd have a gazillon ornies, right?.... No, I still don't have a Halloween Ornament Tree. To my delight, Lainey is hosting this wonderful Halloween SAL; it's just what I need. Not only will I have Halloween Ornies, I will also meet new stitching friends, gather up more mojo & see cute and lovely ornies, stitched by all of you.

My January Ornie is  A Crow's Pick , designed by Knotted Tree NeedleArt. The chart can be found in the 2011 Just CrossStitch Annual Halloween Issue. I've swapped the fabric & threads called for and will use my own colorpath. My fabby is hand dyed, cream linen, either 30 or 32 count (haven't counted threads yet) and Gentle Art threads.

Thank you Lainey for organising and hosting the Halloween Ornament SAL.
Happy Stitching,
