Summer Finishing


Hello Friends!

June is flying by and with the Fourth of July just around the corner, I've been working on getting the last of my strawberries and watermelons vignettes done so I can finish up some patriotic stitches I have for my July displays.



I started with this small "Berries" pattern that's part of Lizzie Kate's Summer Smalls collection. I finished it by mounting the stitching to this teal strawberry container I found while thrifting. All I did was edge it with some handmade cording and I added a bow with a small daisy button center.



Upstairs, I was able to get the "Summer "portion of  Lizzie Kate's Summer Smalls stitched up for my chalkboard piece, as well as Summer ABCs by Little House Needleworks.

Both the chalkboard easel and the white-washed shutter came from Michaels and I use washers and magnets on the back so I can change them out for the seasons. 


This freebie chart by Barbara Ana is one of my favorites of all time and I'm so happy that this year I got to stitch one for myself to add to my tiered tray. I even put it out a little earlier because I just love it so much. (To get this chart, you need to join or be part of the Star Spangled Stitchers group on Facebook.)

For my shop, I had a couple of summer/patriotic finishes as well starting with Summer Round from Hands on Design's "Well Rounded Perennial Pinwheels." I finished this piece as a mounted easel with some blue and white polka dot fabric.


I also finished this "Let Freedom Ring" fancy flat that came from Man Di Donna's "Sounds of Freedom" series....


...as well as Little House Needleworks "Stars and Stripes" that I finished as this block wall hanging.


For client finishes, I definitely had quite the variety of charts and finishes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful finishes for yourself and for your clients, Alissa! I love the deer fancy flat finish you created in the bottom right photo. Love the 'paddle' boards. Did you provide them or did your client? And how long is that shutter you have your Summer ABCs on?
