This Is So Wrong

On the left is chocolate candy corn and on the right is caramel candy corn. My sister got me a bag of each because she knows I am a candy corn junkie and I was really disappointed, even though I love chocolate and I love caramel. Plain old candy corn is fine with me. Well, as long as it's Brach's candy corn made with honey.

Speaking of Halloween, the other night I saw this cross stitched pumpkin on Gazette94 and started working on it right away. (There's a translation widget in the right sidebar.) I'm about 3/4 of the way finished with the stitching. It looks to me like you put it together the same way you make a biscornu. I like the heart with the squirrels design in the same post. She has some really nice free charts there.

I have few other Halloween projects started and who knows if I'll ever finish them. My problem is I keep seeing more things I want to make. There is way too much good stuff out there! Like the ghost walkers from The Small Object Steno Pad and Jenny's pumpkin treat bags. And these vintage looking paper decorations from Martha. I was actually going to make the pumpkin tonight but didn't have enough orange paper.

So the chocolate candy corn wasn't good? How disappointing.

That pumpkin is gorgeous and I like the squirrel heart design too.

I have a whole jar of that fancy schmancy candy corn right here, and a separate jar of those pumpkin thingys that taste like wax. Yet I can't stop eating them. Nom nom nom.

I'm doing a cross stitch Halloween witch, but I'm going a little crazy with the 15 shades of gray in her robe (including lots of blended stitches) and all the 1/4 stitches. Not sure this one's going to get done.

Candy corn is popping up everywhere in blogland, tutes for knitted versions, sewn versions, paper versions - you know what? I have NO IDEA what it is! I've never heard of it!

That's how I feel about Peeps. Any Peeps other than Easter Peeps are creepy and a criminal.

The caramel apple candy corn (it's red and brown, I think) got my money. But the caramel type was okay, too.

There's pumpkin spice flavor candy corn out there somewhere. o.o'
