Valentine's Day Finishes

Hi Friends!

After a full week with the flu, I was finally able to function long enough to hit the studio today and get some finishing done. It really felt good to (kind of) be back in the swing of things.

I started with this small XOXO bucket.

The pattern I used is from a portion of "XOXO" by Cherry Hill Stitchery under the "A Hearts and Flowers Valentine" pattern set. I changed up the colors to DMC white, 347, 604 and 471 and stitched it on some mocha lugana. The piece is glued directly to the red bucket and then all I did was add some white cording and a bow. 

The second finish was this small wood ornament that I used Hands on Design's "Be Mine" pattern to decorate. I stitched the piece on some dyed grey evenweave I had and then mounted the piece to some pink and grey fabric before adding the hanger and ribbon.

The third finish was a stitch I had laying around for weeks not knowing what to do with. It didn't look good with any of my stashed pieces or in a frame, so right before I was about to make it a mounted hanging flat, I changed it up into an easelback with this really cute coordinating pink and green fabric. I matted the stitching to some green fabric before mounting both to the handmade easel. I added white cording and a bow with a cover-button center.

Snowmen Finishes

Hi Friends!

Three Lizzie Kate snowman finishes have been stitched, FFOed and moved out the door!

I found this metal bucket at Hobby Lobby and because of its size, I knew I had to stitch up something small for the front. I found this "January"pattern by Lizzie Kate and only stitched the snowman. He's mounted to the front, edged in some cording and accessorized with some flocked greenery.

The second finish is also from Lizzie Kate and is finished in much of the same way except that the snowman trio is attached to a square metal bucket (also found at Hobby Lobby). 

The third finish is Lizzie Kate's "Ready for Snow" and I decided to turn this into a "Fancy Flat" ornament using some grey/blue fabric. I added some ribbon and ric rac to jazz it up a bit.

On all three snowman I used the following DMC colors: 223, 815, 930, 932, 3031, 310, White

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.


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.
