Squirrel Stitching

Good morning!
I finished stitching Plum Street Samplers A Bowl Full Of Scaries.. Scary 2 this week and finished it up last night..
This chart came with the floss but it was supposed to be stitched on 36 count with one thread and since I stitch on 28 count with 2 threads I ran out.. I didn't have the same thread called for so Ronnie helped me make some substitutions:) I used the Classic Colorworks Fallen Leaves for all the big leaves on the top ..filled in the 2 biggest leaves with Classic Colorworks Joshua Tree and used DMC 935 for the tops of the 4 acorns hanging from the leaves.. It is stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed evenweave..
I like to buy the little wicker picnic hampers when I see them at Goodwill to use for decorating.. since I don't want this piece to be permanently attached I  made a loop of fabric to hang over the handle .. I added a bow of burlap and 2 different homespun fabrics..2 fall picks were also added in the handle .. none of it is glued down.

I mounted the stitching on sticky board , and mounted black check homespun on another piece of sticky board and glued those two together..
