Finishes of the Week

Hello Friends!

Another busy week in the studio with things really ramping up for Christmas. I feel like this year it's reeeeeally coming too fast. And I'm so not ready!

I started the week putting together a large order for Karen.



The first stitch and finish was this Woodland Sampling by Little House Needleworks. It's stitched on 28 count grey, tea-dyed evenweave and matted with black and tan homespun. Both pieces were mounted to the front of this white-washed easel and then I just added some flocked greenery and a jute bow with cover-button center to the top.




STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Woodland Sampling
Designer: Little House Needleworks
Woodland Sampling - Cross Stitch Pattern
Fabric: 28 ct grey, tea-dyed evenweave
Colors Used: DMC 3787, 3052, 815, 3051, 937, 869, 3799, 3022, White

The second part of the order were these two wooden boxes.


On the left is "Merry Merry" by Country Cottage Needleworks, and on the right is "Ho Ho Ho" that's included in one of Lizzie Kate's Tiny Tiding sets. I matted both pieces with red and white gingham fabric and mounted them to the front of these boxes. Then I just added some cording and bows with snowflake centers. 

The last part of the order were two decorative boxes.



I stitched two patterns from The Sub Rosa Design shop on Etsy and matted them with more homespun fabric before mounting them to the front of these winter-themed decorative boxes I had in my stash. I added some bows to the corners and then added small snowflake buttons.



Then I finished these AWESOME pieces by Ashley. I love every single one of them and immediately bought the patterns to start stitching them myself.




Then I finished this piece from Amanda for her laundry room. It's the "Never Ending Cycle" pattern from Hands on Design's laundry collection. She's mounting it to the front of a metal washboard. Isn't it so cute?

Finishes for the Week

Hello Friends!

I had a really busy week moving a bunch of pieces off my finishing table.

I started with these little Buffalo Check farmhouse ornaments I made using Hands on Design's Chalkboard Ornaments. Instead of stitching them on the black, I went with some tea-dyed eveweave and just inverted the colors from white to black.


Then I moved back to fall and made some of these little pumpkins.




I stitched these quick pieces up on some 32 ct Floba and finished them as small rounds before mounting them to the fronts of these shelf-sitter pumpkins. I made some cording out of green and olive floss and then added some jute bows with leaf button centers.  

My next finish was this small design from Waxing Moon Designs. I had a totally different idea for a finish for this piece, and when it didn't work out, I just made it into a small wood ornament with some coordinating fabric, cording, bows another leaf button.






Then I made a pair of tart ornaments using the December-themed design from Heart in Hand. I love using these seasonal charts for these tarts.




And then I ended the week with finishes for Katrinka and Patti.

I Love Fall

Hello Friends!

I had an impromptu stitch and finish from Cherry Hill Stitchery this week that I ended up FFOing this morning into a basket-front. Don't you just love this pattern?


I changed most of the colors to bring in more of the greys and blues and then mounted my stitched piece to the front of a white-washed mini crate I had in my stash. I made some cording out of the oranges I used in the pattern and then added some olive green ribbon, a twine bow I made and two small buttons for embellishments. Absolutely love this piece!

Week of Fall Finishes

Hi Friends!

This week I worked on getting some of my fall stitches FFOed as well as working my way through my To-Finish pile from other stitchers.



I started with my Autumn Whirligig tart that I finished like all of the other Whirligigs I finished this year. I made some changes to this design including changes to the color and then edged the piece with some brown and orange fancy trim.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: Autumn Whirligig
Designer: Heart in Hand

Fabric: 28 ct tea-dyed Monaco
Colors Used: DMC 838, 930, 729, 433, 422, 3777, 730, 3826, White





Then I finished up this cute fall stitch as another one of those rustic wood ornaments I had finished a few weeks ago. This type of finish is basic and simple but I like that I got to play around with some color through cording and ribbons.

This Way to the Pumpkin Patch



I absolutely love, love, love this new pattern from Hands on Design. Cathy's patterns always seem to hit my style, and this one is no exception with the multi-colored pumpkins. 



I stitched this piece all in DMC and made a few changes so that I could coordinate with the blues and grays from the rustic easel. When I went to put it all together, though, I felt like I was a little low on the orange tones, so I added some rust-colored fabric to the back of some gray/blue fabric that mats the stitched piece. Then I felt like I was a little low on green, so I made some cording out of DMC 730 and edged the piece with that before adding some ribbons and a cover button. Super cute fall piece!

STITCHY DETAILS:

Designer: Hands on Design

Fabric: 32 ct Platinum Lugana
