Merry Merry Finishes





Hello Friends!

After a week or so of custom orders and finishes, I'm happy to say I got to spend the day being crafty and creative with some new finishes!


First up was this little Patchwork ornament from one of Lizzie Kate's Tiny Tidings. I changed most of the colors to make it a little more primitive and rustic looking and then mounted it some coordinating homespun fabric. I added some thin garland to the top and finished it with a red bow with a jingle bell center.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: "Patchwork" from Tiny Tidings XX
Designer: Lizzie Kate
Tiny Tidings XX - Cross Stitch Pattern
Fabric: 28 ct tea dyed evenweave
Colors: DMC 498, 3712, 3345, 580, 814, 420, 310 and White


The second finish was a wooden decorative box using one of the newer Hands on Designs patterns for the holidays. 

The stitched piece is matted to some pretty holiday-themed fabric and then both were mounted to the front of the box. I used some skinny snow-covered garland, a teal box followed by a red and white polka dot bow, and then a snowflake center.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Noel (White Christmas 4)
Designer: Hands on Design

Fabric: 28 ct tea dyed evenweave
Colors: DMC 498, 3362, 3363, 729, 3862, 3810, 3811



And last but not least was this Merry and Bright basket. I had the perfect basket in my stash for this sized design so all I did was add some homespun fabric to the back and finish it with some larger snow-covered branches and a snowflake.

Happy November!

Happy November Friends!

The November cottage of the month is done and in the fall-themed hutch!

I pretty much substituted every color in this pattern to fit my decor. Like all other cottages of the month, it's matted to some green floral backing and mounted to the front of my standard white frame with magnets.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Cottage of the Month - November
Designer: Country Cottage Needleworks
Cottage Of The Month November - Cross Stitch Pattern
Fabric: 28 ct tea dyed evenweave
Colors: 
Classic Colorworks - Cherry Cobbler, Pea Pod, 
Autumn Spice, Ye Olde Gold; Weeks - Mocha; DMC - 437, White

Today I work on taking down the Halloween decor and replacing it with more leaves, pumpkins and apples. The good thing about the transition is that it doesn't take much work. In fact, nearly all my decor from October is staying, minus the Halloween-specific pieces.


Unfortunately, the transition does include the removal of my Halloween Rules tombstone that I love so much. I will miss this piece so much until next year, but it only makes me want to finish the Christmas Rules that much more!


Thanks for stopping by!

Rustic Snowman Box



Hello Friends!

I just finished up this really cute snowman decorative box using a pattern from a company I've never stitched any patterns from before -- The Woolly Ewe. I love The Woolly Ewe's designs because they have a rustic look and feel to them. Plus they are available in digital dowload which makes it really easy to stitch up while using my tablet. I'm definitely going to be stitching more from this shop. Highly recommend! Check it The Woolly Ewe's shop here: The Woolly Ewe


For this piece, I simply mounted the stitching onto some coordinating homespun fabric, and then mounted both of those to the top of this snowman box. The pattern itself is so pretty, I decided against any embellishments, bows, picks, etc. I think it can stand on its own.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Winter's Frost
Designer: The Woolly Ewe

Fabric: 28 ct tea-dyed evenweave
