Grateful



Happy Friday, Friends!

It's been a little crazy in the studio this month, so I completely forgot to share my "Grateful" finish by Cherry Hill Stitchery. I've received many kind messages regarding my color conversion, so if you're interested, here they are!

DMC: 535, 310 and White (for the buffalo check), 3848, 3849, 3811, 3826, 977, 920, 729, 731, 937, and 3031.



It's finished on an 8" x 8" white rustic wood pallet using black and white gingham fabric as the backing. I made some cording out of white DMC and then edged all sides before adding some coordinating ribbons to the top.

Autumn Skies and Pumpkin Pies




Hello Friends!

"Autumn Skies and Pumpkin Pies" by Hands on Design is freshly finished this morning! I decided to mount it on this galvanized easel I found awhile back at Kirklands. 


I stitched the chart on 32 ct Platinum Lugana using the following DMC colors: 3776, 3849, 535, 3790 and 580. The stitched piece was matted with black and white gingham and then mounted to the front of the easel. I made some white cording to edge the sides and then just criss-crossed some ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby.

Hello Autumn!



Hello Friends!

This morning I finished up Hello Autumn, a chart that's included in Let's Talk Autumn by Hands on Design. It's meant to be stitched on black, but I wanted to mount it on this glittery pumpkin I had in my stash, so I just switched up the colors a bit. I may stitch it again in the black like the pattern calls for. It's such a cute, easy pattern to stitch!



The pattern was stitched on 32 ct Platinum Lugana and I used the following DMC threads: 3849, 580, 611, 310, 3853, 920 and White. I finished it as a round flat and then added some cording I made out of DMC 580. Then I just added a few bows/ribbons to bring out some more color.

Inspirational Quote Flatfolds


Hello Friends!

I worked on these inspirational quote designs from Little House Needleworks for the past week or so and finally got them finished into mounted flatfolds this morning. The different color themes really made them a joy to stitch!

All four designs can be found in "Inspirational Scriptures" chart by Little House Needleworks.

Farm Fresh



Hello Friends!

Farm Fresh has finally been fully finished this morning!



I stitched this pattern by Country Cottage Needleworks using all DMC threads on some tea-dyed 32 ct fabric. I matted it with some tan and black homespun fabric and then mounted it to the front of this rustic wood wall hanging I found at Hobby Lobby. I made some handmade cording to attach to the sides and then just added a natural jute ribbon with a sunflower button center.

Hello July Part 2


Hello Friends!

I just finished the last of the patriotic decorating downstairs (for now) with the biggest finish being my kitchen hutch. 



As always, my Country Cottage Needleworks cottage of the month serves as the focal point with many patriotic small decor items filling in around it. I had wished I would have gotten more patriotic stitches up to add to this hutch but with my other summer vignettes, I just ran out of time! 


I'm so glad I was able to get this patriotic trio by Little House Needleworks done for this year. These "Land of the Free", "Home of the Brave," "Long May She Wave," patterns are Classic Colorworks thread packs, but I didn't use the called-for colors. I went with Blacksmith Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Oscar, Hickory Sticks, Dublin Bay and White DMC.

Hello July!



Hello Friends!
I started my July decorating upstairs as I've recently finished some new patriotic pieces.


I worked on my tiered tray first as it always seems to give me the biggest problem and chose to make Barbara Ana's "Freedom" piece the focal point. "Freedom" is matted with coordinating fabric and mounted (with magnets) to the front of a white-washed box I found at Michaels awhile back. The tray also has a USA-themed galvanized standup I found at Kirklands, a wood star trio I found at a thrift store last year in KC, some mason jars, and patriotic picks, flowers and flags.


I was able to stitch up this patriotic house found in the Sweet Land of Liberty book by Blackbird Designs, and when I found the blue wooden standup at Michaels, I knew they had to go together. 



I also was able to finish Freedom House by Little House Needleworks, a piece I've admired for years so I knew I wanted that to be front and center. It's matted with some fabric and mounted (again with magnets) to the front of this stand-up square frame I found at Kirklands this year. For height, I flipped over a galvanized box for it to sit up, and placed it in this blue weathered tray I also found at Kirklands.

Stars and Stripes from Little House Needleworks was stitched on 36 ct to make it tiny enough to sit atop this small grey pedestal I found at Michaels to off-set the flag-themed metal vase I placed on the other side.
