Bunny Finishes

Hello Friends!

It's been a busy couple of weeks here in quarantine and I swear being busy is the only thing keeping me sane!



I started the week stitching up this cute bunny piece, "Happy Bunny Bunny Day" by the Trilogy and finished it as a basket front.



I used DMC 844, 223 and white as my colors and stitched it up on some scrap Monaco. This metal basket was a really cool find awhile back that I thought would be perfect for the piece, so I finished the bunny as a "flat," edged it with some cording, attached a bow and mounted it to the front. I absolutely love it!



My second piece was this Prairie Schooler bunny I finished as a paddle topper. With the weather being so nice here in Phoenix, I was able to do a lot of chalk-painting outside, so I painted the paddle an ivory chalk-finish and then roughed up the edges. 



The stitched piece is matted with homespun fabric and mounted to the front. The pattern is from the "Signs of Spring" book from Prairie Schooler. I used all called-for colors.

Stitching Bee



Hello Friends!

The second this "Stitching Bee" pattern by Little House Needleworks was released I knew I just had to stitch it. I absolutely love it!



This piece was stitched on 32 ct Taupe lugana using DMC 729, 3371, 731 and white. I finished it as a mounted easel using tan and brown homespun fabric to give it a primitive look. I made some cording from gold floss and then accented the piece with olive green and tan and black polka dot ribbons before attaching a small white flower to the center.

Hip Hop



Hello Friends!

"Hip Hop" by Hands on Design has been finished!



I stitched this adorable pattern on 28 ct black Jobelan using DMC 3854, 598, 581,760 and white. Its finished as a "fancy flat" piece complete with black and white gingham (of course!) and accented with aqua fabric, white ric rac and some bows and coverbutton. I also made some cording with 3854 and edged all sides of the piece to bring out a little bit of that creamsicle color in the pattern.

Such a cute pattern and such a fun, quick stitch!

Spring Finishes

Hello Friends!

This morning I've been working on putting finishing touches on some of my latest stitches.



I started with this bright and cheery pattern from Jardin Prive called "Fraicheur Printaniere". I stitched it up on some 32 ct Platinum Lugana and used DMC 597, 580, 3853 and 729 for colors. The wooden bucket was a Michael's find awhile back and I loved the mint green-washed effect it had. I mounted the piece to the front and edged it with some cording before adding bows.



The second finish is a Prairie Schooler that's been laying around for some time while I tried to figure out a finish. I found this wooden spatula (?) at a local thrift shop and thought it was perfect! I mounted the stitched piece directly to the spoon, edged it with cording and added a bow.
