The Town of Halloween

This is The Town of Halloween from the Just Cross Stitch 2012 Halloween issue. I did this mostly using the colors as indicated with two strands on 14-count aida; the aida was Charles Craft Carolina Linen in sand. The biggest change I made was the w in Halloween; it was supposed to be in the greenish-grey color, but I didn’t liked the way it looked. A few places in the tree branches were diagonals, and I added stitches to make them look a little more substantial. This went fairly quickly; I was less than half-finished at the end of last month. I plan on trying to turn it into a pillow.
